API Monogram is a self-registering program designed to an organization involved in manufacturing the equipment’s and product used in the oil and gas industry which shall be controlled by API monogram licenses.
API Monogram is applicable for the manufacturers of production equipment, drilling equipment and now, even refinery equipment, the API Monogram Program lets companies demonstrate the product are meeting the global quality requirements and usability in global oil & industry market.
Global energy consumption and demands relatively increasingly and competitive business environment in the oil and natural gas industry have created new measures by API Monogram, which organizations must demonstrate their abilities and control the products are manufactured to meet their customer requirements.
API Monogram licensing are generally certified when organization implement and maintains requirements of API Q1 and proves the capability of the organization to meet the production and testing requirements of Monogram.
API is committed to maintaining the highest level of confidence all through licensing activities by providing impartial and objective assessments of its client’s management systems. This commitment is supported by processes that manage conflicts of interest, ensure personnel competence, maintain the confidentiality of information while promoting openness, and enable communication with all stakeholders.
As qualified API Monogram consultant at Vegas Consulting goal is to provide the best available solution to make the system and competence of an organization to achieve API monogram and certification by our consultancy and training expertise, in turn, creates value for customers, shareholders, and employees.
API Spec Q1 integrated with applicable API Product Specification listed by API Monogram Program.
What is the procedure for apply API Monogram Certification:
API Spec Q1, 9 th Edition allows few clauses of the standard that are applicable for exclusion as below.
Furthermore, such exclusions cannot affect the organization's ability, or responsibility, to provide products and related servicing that meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements. Exclusions are limited to the following clauses
The organization shall be required to provide evidence that excluded the scope of services does not affect meeting the requirements of API specification or other applicable standards.
All applicant meeting the requirements of API advisory 6 should hold a Design Package(s) to demonstrate compliance with design and development requirements fluffing the requirements of API Spec Q1. All API Monogram Licensing Program including design package for review during an audit.
What is Design Package / Design Binders?
The design package shall include a detailed plan for a product(s) which includes all the background documents, applicable API standards, and the instructions, procedures, specifications, drawings, process sheets, and process validation documents.
The API Monogram design package shall include design plans, input elements, output elements, evidence of review/verification and evidence of validation and changes performed on the design if required as per API Spec Q1.
The applicant organization needs to satisfy the application requirements listed in Monogram Program Requirements, if any deficiencies is identified in the submitted application the issue to be resolved within one year of submission, failure to the same will withdraw the application.
Organization applying need to provide product details for each API Monogram License for which you are applying, as applicable to the API Specification(s). You can find product detail information for each Monogram License here. View List of API Monogram Licenses in API Product Specification Tab.
During the application a copy of Quality Manual to be uploaded in (in English), which thoroughly describes your QMS process. The Quality Manual must explicitly address all requirements identified in API Spec Q1, including the justification of executions.
Completed & approved copy conformity matrix to be uploaded as per API Spec Q1 9th Edition Conformity Matrix (in English).
Organization willing to apply for one licensing or multiple licensing application will be treated as per the below listed licensing fee are as follows:
If an organization’s wish to apply for API Spec Q1 & Q2 Monogram license, the organization will of USD 10,500.00.
The above cost does not include the service fee offered by Vegas Consulting or either API audit fee.
API publishes advisories that are intended to notify applicants and licensed organizations of program policies that have industry-wide application. These advisories are part of the program requirements and compliance with them is compulsory. It is the responsibility of the applicant organization to periodically check the site to ensure that they remain in compliance with all of the advisories.
Vegas Consulting Group helps manufacturing organizations to get API product certification and being able to monogram their products. Our API Monogram consultants first determine the product specification requirements applicable to the organization.
If your organization does not have QMS certifications, we assist with our API Monogram license consulting approach to bring the organization’s QMS implemented. API Monogram licensing program facilitates the consistent manufacturing of a product that conforms to applicable API specifications.
Our API Monogram certification consultancy will help your organization implement an API product specification and ensure that your organization also complies with all requirements of API Spec Q1.
