A team effortThe API Q2 specification confirms that they have robust procedures in place to ensure safety, quality, employee competency, operational efficiency, and to maintain customer satisfaction among other key quality management system elements.
As part of our strategy to achieve API Q2 certification, Management took a decision in 2018 to implement the API Q2 Quality Management System. We went through a painstaking and rigorous process of reviewing, revamping and documenting our business processes.
