The API Monogram program is a voluntary licensing program that facilitates the consistent manufacturing of product that conforms to applicable API Specifications. The program requires that manufacturers maintain the capabilities, including the resources, processes and technology, to manufacture products that fall within the scope of licensing. The program gives licensed manufacturers an opportunity to mark conforming product so that it is easily recognizable and identifiable in the field. Licensees demonstrate that they have a quality management system that is compliant with API Spec Q1 – an industry-leading quality management standard. API Spec Q1 meets most of the ISO 9001 requirements, in addition to requirements that are geared specifically for the oil and natural gas industry. The API Monogram Licenses are only issued after an on-site audit has verified that the facility meets the program requirements. Licensees are required to maintain continued management system conformity to API Spec Q1 as well as the product standard and program requirements. In order for a license to remain active, the licensee must go through a renewal audit after each 3 year period.
Licensed manufacturers are given the authority to apply the API Monogram registered mark to equipment that meets the requirements.
