ISO/TS 29001 defines the quality management system requirements for the design, development, production, installation and service of products for the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries.

What is ISO 29001 Oil and Gas? 

Developed as a direct result of a partnership between ISO and the international oil and gas industry (led by the American Petroleum Institute - API ), ISO 29001 specifically focuses on the oil and gas supply chain.

The ISO/TS 29001 standard is based on ISO 9001 and incorporates supplementary requirements emphasising defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste from service providers.

These requirements have been developed separately to ensure that they are clear and auditable. They also provide global consistency and improved assurance in the supply quality of goods and services from providers. This is particularly important when the failure of goods or services have severe ramifications for the companies and industries involved.  

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




Benefits experienced by implementing this standard are:

  • A licence to trade in the oil and gas industry
    For many organizations within the oil and gas supply chain, certification to this standard is necessary to secure valuable contracts and gain competitive advantage.

  • Enhanced brand reputation
    Certification proves your commitment to industry best practice and enables you to stand out above the crowd.

  • Flexibility
    The standard has been designed to be compatible with other existing management systems standards making integrating your systems easier.

  • Cost savings
    Third-party certification to this technical standard will help to reduce multiple supplier audits and any associated costs.

  • Managed business risk
    Based as it is on ISO 9001, certification also makes it easier for you to measure performance and better manage business risk.

  • Streamlined operations and reduced waste
    The assessment focuses on your operating processes, which encourages you to improve the quality of your products and service and helps you to reduce waste, rejections and customer complaints.

  • Encourages communication
    Like ISO 9001, this requirement scheme ensures that employees feel more involved through improved communication. Continued assessment visits can highlight any problems and uncover any issues that may be present
