Boxed text is original ISO 9001:2015 text unaltered and in its entirety. The petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industry sector-specific supplemental requirements are outside the boxes.
This certification is for organizations involved in exploration, production, pipelines and transport, refining of petroleum and natural gas and those that provide technical and support services to these industries. The specification is also applicable to manufacturers and purchasers of oil and gas industry equipment can also use this technical specification.
Certifications are issued by third party certifying bodies. For an organization to maintain certification, they will be subjected to annual or regularly scheduled audits where the organization's compliance with the standard is evaluated by the certifying body
ISO/TS 29001 defines the quality management system for product and service supply organizations for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries.
ISO/TS 29001 is available for use by manufacturers of oil and gas industry equipment and materials (upstream and downstream), service providers to the oil and gas industry, purchasers of equipment, materials, and services. The document can also be used for organizations to perform 2nd party auditing of their suppliers, as well as for 3rd party certification purposes.
Due to the inherent risks associated with the oil and gas industry, rigorous conformity to engineering, user and regulatory requirements are required. The industry handles fluids (liquids and gases), often at extreme high pressures, through a variety of products and processes. Considerations for the safety of personnel are of major importance. Additionally, protection of the environment and of business continuity (maintenance of revenue streams, both for companies and for national economies) require a high level of operational integrity. Conformance to ISO TS 29001 should assist in mitigation of operational risks as a result of products being in full conformance with specifications and regulations.
Organizations may benefit from this standard if they are:Involved in exploration, production, pipelines, transportation, and refining of petroleum and natural gas products.Involved in the design, manufacture, installation, service, and repair of equipment used in the exploration, production, transportation, and refining of petroleum and natural gas productsProviding technical, operational, and support services to the various industry sectors identified above
