SOR certification was performed by API auditors. The experts looked into all branches of the factory's structure, including production, engineering, HR, etc. No compliance problems were identified. The audit procedures successfully completed, SOT will soon receive three quality management system certificates: API Spec Q1; ISO/TS 29001:2010; ISO 9001:2008. This package of documents will make the company eligible for foreign fuel and energy companies' projects.
«Our plant completes API system certification since 2008,» says Leonid Malamud, SOT Executive Director. «In compliance with international and Russian standards, we offer our clients high quality hot-formed bends and welded/stamped T-bends which meet all the oil and gas transportation requirements out there.»
The API audit was the last external SOT quality management system inspection this year. Earlier the company had its quality management system certified to ST RK ISO 9001-2009 and STO Gazprom 9001-2006. The next API audit is scheduled for May, 2014.
