2 API’s Supplier Certification Program
Presentation covers: API’s Monogram Program How Manufacturers Qualify How Manufacturers Benefit How Users Benefit How to Locate ‘Licensees’ By the Numbers Conclusions

3 API’s Monogram Program
Established in 1924 “to facilitate the availability of safe, interchangeable equipment and materials for general use in the petroleum drilling and production industry.” API product standards promote equipment interchangeability and include elements of safety to reduce risk to people and operations Monogram facilitates the availability of equipment by identifying manufacturers able to comply with API product standards – globally

4 API’s Monogram Program
What it is: A certification program that identifies manufacturers of new equipment in accordance with an API product standard while operating in accordance API’s quality management standard What it is not: A certification scheme required of manufacturers to sell products into the USA

5 How API Standards Join the Monogram Program
Manufacturers and Users decide to standardize a product An API Committee is formed and a standard is written The Standard is reviewed for auditability and revised, if necessary API Staff and API Auditors are trained in the use of the Standard The Standard joins the Monogram Program

6 How Manufacturers Qualify
Manufacturers must implement and maintain at all times QMSs compliant with API Spec Q1 API Spec Q1 includes 93 requirements in addition to ISO 9001 Manufacturers must have the technical capability to comply with an API product standard 79 API product specifications covering approximately 315 products 66 upstream standards, 9 downstream standards, 4 supply chain standards Manufacturers must successfully pass an intensive on-site API audit All API certification decisions are made by API staff in Washington DC - centralized All ‘licensees’ pledge to maintain this level of quality and technical capability

7 How Manufacturers Benefit
API product standards include requirements manufacturers accept Manufacturers supply what customers need using purchasing Annexes in API standards Manufacturers realize improvements in quality by complying with API’s industry specification QMS standard

8 How Manufacturers Benefit
Manufacturers improve technically through API product specifications Licensees learn best practices Licensees have minimum facility requirements Licensees perform tests and inspections Employees are technically capable Manufacturers reach new markets – domestically and internationally

9 How Users Benefit API product standards include requirements Users accept Users order want they need using purchasing Annexes in API standards Users save time and money with fewer supplier audits Users report non-conforming Monogram-marked equipment

10 How Users Benefit Only Monogram Licensees may apply the Monogram mark to products API’s Monogram mark and the Manufacturer’s name are both found on the licensed product Users have access to thousands of API pre-qualified equipment suppliers

11 How to Locate Licensees
The API Composite List: Search by Company Name Certificate Number API Standard Product Updated daily

12 Monogram Licensees in Russia

13 By the Numbers API in Russia API Worldwide Licensed Companies
66 Companies licensed or applying Applications from Russia doubled previous best in 2012 4332 Licensed or Applying 7,249 Licenses 72 Countries 20% USA and 80% non-USA Qualified Auditors 5 Auditors 150 Auditors Most popular API Specs API Specs 5CT, 5L, 6D, 7-1, 10A Same, but includes API Spec 6A Upstream, Downstream, Supply Chain API Resources Russian Register in Petersburg Offices in Houston, Beijing, Singapore, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, and soon Europe

14 Conclusions Monogram Program was created for industry by industry
Monogram Program is managed by an industry committee of Manufacturers and Users Monogram licensees meet API’s high standards for quality and products ALL licensees are manufacturers with capabilities proven through intensive on-site API audits Russian participation in the Monogram Program is growing API seeks new relationships (MOUs) with Russian organizations to expand the knowledge of API standards and certifications
