The API 7-1 monogram product has not been manufactured for a long time due to no order.How should we demonstrate our manufacturing capability of this one to onsite the API auditor.Thanks for your help in advance.

This is a common situation. Most important: you need to have a design package for any API 7-1 product not listed on Advisory 6. Beyond that, your system needs to have all the appropriate controls in place (such as a monogram marking procedure) to ensure that any API 7-1 product you produce will conform. Manufacturing records of other similar products (that were produced in the last year but not monogrammed) are also recommended.

Hi, Jmech, Thanks for your help. We already have a design package for any API 7-1 product and what should I do if the API auditor wants to visit the workshop. How to demonstrate our manufacturing capability due to our workshop has no order all the time. Thanks again.

If your workshop has done no work since your last audit and will not be performing any work during your audit, you may be in trouble. If that's the case, I recommend contacting API to discuss prior to your audit. They may be able to make special accommodations due to the industry downturn and COVID.

Alternatively, manufacturing some parts for stock (and not an order) may be another way to demonstrate capability, just don't state that it is a sample manufactured only for the audit.

Be honest with auditor with monogram issue stated above. Maybe contact auditor/API well before audit and advise them of your situation. They cant control how much or little monogrammed product you have sold. If you have the monogram that means that your company has demonstrated the capabilities of manufacturing and auditor will just verify that you have controls and capabilities to monogram products in the future.
