API published the Q1 9th Edition 2nd Addendum in June with an effective date of June 2019. But that doesn’t mean you can forget about it until next year.  Beginning immediately auditors are looking for compliance with these new requirements. Don’t wait until you get a finding before you implement these changes to your QMS.

The addendum adds to or modifies language in 6 paragraphs of the Spec. It deals with how you control the quality of your suppliers and your suppliers’ suppliers. Sound confusing? Ed Durante, TIEC president, will break it down and make it clear for you. Ed has been on the API committees responsible for writing the Q1 Spec since its very first edition.
