About API Specification Q2
While the API Spec Q1 9th Edition is geared towards organizations who manufacture or fabricate products, the API Spec Q2 certification addresses Quality Management System for service supply organizations for the upstream petroleum and natural gas industries.
API Q2 includes generic Quality Management System requirements, as well as additional requirements that target the execution of services or provision of service-related products in the execution of the service. The requirements are structured in a way to minimize the likelihood of nonconformity in the execution of a service.
More specifically, API Q2 is intended to apply to the execution of upstream services during exploration, development and production in the oil and gas industry. This includes activities involved in oil and gas well construction, intervention, production, and abandonment. API Q2 requirements also apply to activities associated with well servicing, equipment repair/maintenance and inspection activities.
Mireaux Management Solutions has extensive experience conducting various types of audits against API Spec Q2, including the following:

API Q1 requirements apply to manufacturing companies, while API Q2 requirements apply to service supply organizations. Both of them present requirements for Quality Management Systems for the petroleum and natural gas industry.
Not every organization can become API Q2 certified. For an organization to apply to the API QR program, it has to supply services to the petroleum and natural gas industry at the well site or rig site.
Nevertheless, not being able to certify does not preclude an organization from utilizing the API Q2 standard as the benchmark for their Quality Management System and continual improvement efforts.
