ISO/TS 29001 oil, gas and petrochemical

What is ISO ISO/TS 29001?

The ISO/TS 29001 is the internationally recognised standard for the design, development, production, installation and service of products for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries.

What does ISO/TS 29001 do?

ISO/TS 29001 provides additional requirements to ISO 9001 specifically emphasising defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste from service providers working in the oil, gas and petrochemical supply chain.

ISO/TS 29001 benefits

An ISO/TS 29001 certification helps deliver:

  • Waste reduction
  • Cost savings
  • Competitive advantage
  • Defect prevention
  • Reduction of variation

ISO/TS 29001 helps to reduce or eliminate multiple assessments with the additional benefits of reduction in disruption to the business, associated paperwork and costs. Increasingly, organisations within the supply chain will need certification against this standard in order to secure contracts. This technical specification aims at the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasising defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain and from service providers.

Who can use ISO/TS 29001?

This standard is for all organisations working within the oil and gas industry supply chain. Certification to ISO/TS 29001 ensures standardisation and improvement within the sector.

How LRQA can help

ISO 9001 is applicable to any organisation – irrespective of their size or geographical location. One of the major strengths of ISO 9001 is its wider appeal for all types of organisation. Because it focuses on processes and customer satisfaction rather than procedures, it is equally applicable to service providers as well as manufacturers. Global sectors have also continued to focus their efforts on quality, with sector specific QMS derivatives of ISO 9001 available for the automotive, aerospace, defence and medical sectors.

Management systems are becoming increasingly linked to the success and survival of organisations. In parallel, CEOs and MDs worldwide are placing greater emphasis on the independent assessment that helps ensure management systems are ‘fit for purpose’. Our unique methodology, LRQA Business Assurance, helps organisations manage their systems and risks to improve and protect their current and future performance. We provide certification and training across all of the major standards. For organisations with other standards, we can often offer integrated assessments, thus delivering savings on both time and money.
