Reading through API Q2 Spec, I found an increased emphasis on Service Quality Plans (sometimes referred to as quality plans or service delivery plans). Service Quality Plans are implemented to control the delivery of products or services to the oil and gas industry.
Your organization will now be required to clearly define, measure and document the additional steps taken to be in compliance. If a procedure, specification or documentation changes, it must be recorded in a timely manner.
Service Quality Plans also require your organization to place tighter control over subcontractors. In my experience, demonstrating control over subcontractors can be a difficult task and can cause turmoil if not done properly. Proper oversight of your subcontractors not only aligns with API Q2 but also improves your organizational efficiency.
It is vital to the success and compliance of your organization that you take initiative to understand Service Quality Plans, along with all other requirements outlined in API Spec Q2.
