Trubodetal Quality Management System Passes Dual Audit

The Trubodetal Facility (AO Trubodetal, Chelyabinsk, a United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) subsidiary) successfully cleared a quality management system certification audit for compliance with the requirements of GOST R USO 900-2015 (ISO 9001:2015) and an initial inspection for compliance with the requirements of the Gazprom STO 900-2012 standard under the Intergazcert Voluntary Certification System.

Specialists from the OOO Pronap certification authority audited the quality management system to the extent it applies to the design and manufacture of pipeline fittings and main and oilfield line assemblies for operating pressures of up to 32 MPa, bends and curved inserts, seamless welded pipeline components from carbon and low-alloyed steels, pipeline fittings and assemblies with ID and OD corrosion-resistant coatings, components with external insulation. Experts assessed quality system structure, policies, procedures and documents: quality manual, work and process procedures, job descriptions, and individual department charters.

As a result, the recommendation was that the facility be issued a certificate of compliance for the requirements of GOST R ISO 9001-2015 (ISO 9001:2015) with a three-year validity and that the certificate of compliance for the requirements of Gazprom STO 9001-2012 be renewed.

“The auditors gave our facility's quality management system high grades, noted the customer focus, the introduction of the Brilliant system that enables us to identify substandard product in the earliest processing steps, and our team’s other strong suits.  At the same time, we are never satisfied with our current level of accomplishment and are always happy to get some feedback to be able to improve and upgrade our processes continuously”, said Managing Director Dmitri Markov commenting on the outcome of the audit.
