Drydocks World, active in the Middle East international, maritime, oil & gas and energy sectors, announce it has been formally recognized through the American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification Q1 certification for the shipyard’s Quality Management System.

The stringent API certification process requires that the company has a Quality Management system, quality manual and proper and adequate performance documentation processes and procedures. This includes performing and documenting an internal audit and management review in accordance with the standard.

The Business Excellence and Quality Control functions are centralized and fully autonomous, which ensure that products and services are delivered to consistent quality standards which are not compromised. SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) objectives are set in line with strategic goals. Continuous assessment and audits identify opportunities for improving the product realization process and the quality management system.

His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World said, “We are delighted to have received the API Specification Q1 certification.  It is one of the most prestigious and popular quality standards and is a general requirement for working with the most important global players in the oil & gas sectors. The certification is a testimony to our commitment to serve the sectors with high quality services and total dedication.

We have a well-defined quality policy stressing on the 4Rs of Excellence – Re-focused thinking, Re-engineered solutions, Re-energized interest and Re-positioned execution – and stringent measures in place that ensure that all process descriptions, plans and procedures are well documented and form the basis for all operations within the company and its interaction with our customers. We lay consistent emphasis to maintain high quality standards to ensure a successful project, which in turn will help ensure sustainable business. We believe in continuous improvement and engage in follow up activity by undertaking objective measurements and internal audits so that we can ensure continuous compliance and efficiency at all times.”
