API Q1 Audit Surveillance - Questions

#1
Hi Colleagues,
We are a manufacturer for API 5LD clad products with API Q1 certification. Post our last external audit by API we haven't manufactured any monogrammed products (API 5LD). However we have manufactured monogrammable products partially complying to API 5LD. So in preparation to next surveillance audit do we have to manufacture a demo product and test in line with requirements of API 5LD or partially compliant reports will be suffice for the audit?

Hi,Nith.indsilva4u,
Although your question is a little vague, i can understand your meaning. You actually would like to ask a question that how to demonstrate your manufacturing capability for API 5LD monogrammed products in the next surveillance. You can produce parts of API 5LD that are used to be in stock and make a prototype to indicate your manufacturing capability to your auditor.

Producing demo product just for the audit is often frowned upon by API. If you are still making product similar to monogrammable product, that is likely enough to demonstrate capability. You can contact API prior to your audit to clarify the situation if you are unsure.
