Gazprom confirms compliance of its quality management and process safety management systems with international standards
The Company’s Quality Management System (QMS) received a Certificate of Compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 international standard. The document proves that Gazprom’s management methods conform to international best practices and facilitate the provision of high-quality products and services to consumers.
The QMS certification audit carried out in 2020 was the second such audit to have been performed at the Company. The previous certificate was issued in 2017 for a three-year period.
Another important document received by Gazprom is the Certificate of Compliance of the Integrated System of Process Safety Management (ISPSM) with ISO 45001:2018, an international standard in the field of occupational health and safety management that replaced the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard. The certificate confirms that the ISPSM adopted at Gazprom and its subsidiaries complies with the new international requirements.
Gazprom developed and successfully implemented a corporate Quality Management System. The QMS is aimed at further improving the Company’s performance and efficiency. The system covers business processes in such areas as natural gas, condensate and oil production, transportation, storage and processing, as well as in other fields.
The ISO 9001:2015 standard is based on such principles as, inter alia, customer focus, motivation and engagement of top management in quality assurance processes, and continuous improvement of the Quality Management System.
The Integrated System of Process Safety Management of Gazprom applies to the Company and its subsidiaries. It aims to protect the lives and health of employees, provide a safe working environment, and ensure the reliable operation of hazardous facilities, as well as fire safety and road safety. Gazprom’s ISPSM has been certified for compliance with the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard since 2014.
The certification audit for both QMS and ISPSM was carried out by the Russian Register certification association.
