Gunel,

The certification process is straightforward:

1. Understand how your organization works as a system to fulfill its mission.
2. Engage everyone in the development of your organization’s business management system.
3. Audit the system and its management system for conformity to the certification criteria (API-Q1).
4. Engage everyone in taking any necessary corrective action for ongoing conformity.
5. Assist top management in their review of the performance of their management system.
6. Engage everyone in taking any required improvement actions for the system to be effective.
7. Select an accredited certification body that is respected by your customers.
8. Arrange for the certification audits so the CB can gather and evaluate evidence of your management system’s conformity and effectiveness.
9. Repeat task 4 as often as is necessary.
10. Receive your certificate and update your website.
11. Repeat tasks 1 thru 6 and share the benefits forever.

Search this site for more insight into task 1, 2 or any other task.

We’re looking forward to more questions here.

Best wishes,

John

In addition to John's advice, if you specifically want API Q1 registration from APIQR, you should check out their website:
