Closing Non-conformities and reporting Services

Non-conformance (NC) refers to any deviation from the specified requirements, standards, or procedures.

When a non-conformance is identified within an organization, it is crucial to document and report it through a structured non-conformance reporting (NCR) process. This involves capturing relevant information about the nonconformance, such as the nature of the deviation, its impact, and any associated corrective actions or preventive measures taken.

API non-conformance reporting aims to facilitate effective management of nonconformities, ensuring that appropriate actions are taken to address and rectify the identified issues. This process promotes quality control, continual improvement, and compliance with API standards, ultimately contributing to the overall integrity and safety of operations within the oil and gas industry.

Types of non-conformances we support

  • A Major Non-Conformance: major non-conformance is a significant deviation or failure to comply with the audit criteria or requirements, having a profound impact on the effectiveness, safety, quality, or compliance of the audited system, process, or product. These non-conformances often involve critical lapses, systemic failures, non-compliance with regulatory requirements, or high-risk issues that could potentially compromise safety or quality. Prompt identification and corrective action are essential to address major non-conformances and mitigate their impact, ensuring the integrity and reliability of the audited system or process.
  • Minor Non-Conformance: A minor non-conformance refers to a less significant deviation or non-compliance with the audit criteria or requirements, resulting in a limited impact on the overall effectiveness, safety, quality, or compliance of the audited system, process, or product. These non-conformances typically involve isolated incidents, minor documentation issues, non-compliance with non-critical procedural requirements, or deviations that have minimal impact on the final product quality. While that are considered less severe, it is important to address and rectify minor non-conformances to ensure continuous improvement and adherence to standards.
