QMS Consulting, Project Management & Maintenance
TIEC provides assistance in the development, implementation and maintenance of Quality Systems in compliance with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) , American Petroleum Institute (API), and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) requirements, typically leading to receipt of ISO Certification , API Monogram Licenses, and ASME Code Stamps. These services include the development of manuals, procedures, work instructions forms, objectives, and reports; establishing implementation strategies; training of client personnel; and assistance during certification audits.
Quality Management Systems may integrate quality management with Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE), Risk Management and other customer, regulatory, product or company specified requirements as needed or appropriate for your company.
The API offers an API Monogram License (API registered certification mark) for equipment or parts that meet API product specification requirements and has been manufactured within a quality management system that complies with API Spec Q1. The API Monogram Licenses are only issued after an on-site audit has verified that the facility meets the program requirements. The rights and authorities to use the mark are facility and location specific. The use of the API Monogram on product constitutes a representation and warranty by the licensed manufacturer that, on the date of manufacture, the product conforms to all applicable standards and requirements of API. The API also offers certification of quality management systems for Service Supply providers (to Oil & Gas Industries) to API Spec. Q2. TIEC has extensive international experience in preparing companies for these certification programs.
Companies that don’t have a system or product certifications will be at a disadvantage when attempting to compete against those who do, and may not even be seriously considered for many tender offerings. A system certification also provides a marketing tool to prospective customers and a level of confidence of your ability to maintain specified requirements. Whether you are a manufacturer or service supplier there is a quality standard for your particular application.
A Quality Management System (QMS) is a systematic way of monitoring and controlling the essential activities of your business, to continually improve products, processes, efficiency and personnel.
