API Q1 Application

#1
Hi Everyone,

For my work I have to do an application for the API Q1 certification. At the moment we are very busy with revising our procedures and quality manual.
At first we thought that we could already do the application for the API Q1 certification as soon as we have all the documents, the matrix and the quality manual ready and then afterwards have 4 months to get the whole company to work accordingly to API Q1 standard. But now we are finding out that the company first has to be working accordinly to API Q1 standards before we can do the application (which makes sense).

Does anyone know how long it takes to get an appointment for the audit after the application? (We are located in Europe)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,Learningstudent, The time-specific depends on API Associate`s schedule.
1)Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by an API Associate. During that process you may receive follow-up questions that need to be resolved within 1 year of the date of submission, or the application will be withdrawn. After your application is accepted, an initial audit will be scheduled to confirm that your organization meets all of the requirements of the License or Registration for which you are applying.
2)APIQR Applicants
Those applying for certification to ISO 9001, API Spec Q1, API Spec Q2, ISO 14001 and/or API Spec 18LCM may undergo a Stage 1 audit once the application is accepted. Stage 1 audits are performed on-site and require organizations to provide the auditor access to personnel and documents. These documents may include procedures, control features, internal audit reports, management review records, staff responsibilities and facility layout. Once the Stage 1 audit has been successfully completed, API and the assigned auditor will schedule a Stage 2 audit. These audit costs are at the organization's expense.

Stage 2 audits are performed on-site and include verifying the organization’s conformance with API Spec Q1, API Spec Q2, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and API Spec 18LCM. Stage 2 audits must be completed within 6 months of the Stage 1 audit.

Facilities have a one year deadline from the date of application to undergo their Monogram or Stage 1 audit.

API will make the certification decision on the basis of an evaluation of the audit findings and conclusions, and evidence of effective implementation of corrective actions by the organization (if required). A re-audit may be required based on this evaluation before granting licensing or quality registration.

Organizations registered under API Spec Q1, API Spec Q2, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and API Spec 18LCM will have a full system audit every year to ensure continued conformance with the applicable program requirements.
