Integrated Oil and Gas achieves ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification

Integrated Oil and Gas Ltd, a company that is heavily involved in the downstream petroleum industry, has announced the achievement of ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification from the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON).

The ISO certification is an international standard that determines good management practices and intends to provide a global standard that projects quality and trust.

The certificate is intended to ease international trade by providing a single standard that is recognised and respected globally.

The credential covers areas such as manufacturing, processing, servicing, printing and forestry. It also deals with electronics, steel, computing, legal services, financial services, accounting, trucking, banking and retailing.

A statement by the company revealed that “During the period of two years, the company’s management system developed, established and maintained a robust quality policy and management systems that audited by both internal and external auditors. Quality manual, work processes, procedures and work instructions were produced and audited by both internal and consultant auditors against the ISO 9001:2008 standard requirements.” 

It also disclosed that “After maintaining the management system for over one year, SON Auditors were invited to carry out readiness (pre-audit) and final certification audits. After the two audits, SON was satisfied that Integrated Oil and Gas has satisfied the requirement for the award of the certification to the NIS ISO 9001:2008 standard.”

The certification, the company believes, is beneficial because it includes a framework for improvements on “product reliability and efficiency; better process control and flow; better documentation of the processes and activities” as well as improved employee skills and understanding of customer needs.
