International Technical Standard Is Basis for Quality Management System Requirements for Product and Service Providers in Oil and Gas Industries

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Corpac Steel Products, Corp. (www.corpacsteel.com), a global steel distribution and trading company, has earned ISO/TS 29001:2010 certification, a Technical Standard for quality management systems (QMS) requirements specific to the oil and gas industries. The formal certificate, issued by Det Norske Veritas Certification, Inc. on August 15, 2011, recognizes that Corpac conforms to the management system standard as a product and service provider to the petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. The statement is valid for Distribution and Trading of Coated and Un-coated Line Pipe; Oil Country Tubular Goods; Structural & Standard Products; Valves & Fittings; and Electrical Conduit.

"We believe Corpac is the first distributor of its kind in the world to receive ISO/TS 29001:2010 certification, and certainly the first with our Crossover Distributor ™ system, to earn this certificate," said Jorge Woldenberg, Chief Executive Officer. "We are honored to receive independent confirmation of our quality management system. While our customers recognize Corpac's commitment to supplying world-class quality pipe and steel products and solutions, this designation affirms our industry leadership and certifies that we meet the highest internationally recognized standards set for the industry."

ISO/TS 29001:2010 is the result of cooperation between the American Petroleum Institute (API) and ISO technical committee ISO/TC 67 covering materials, equipment and offshore structures for petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. The entities developed ISO/TS 29001, also published as API Q1, to provide a single QMS document to meet the needs of the oil and gas industries worldwide, specifically the major petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas organizations, as well as government and regulatory agencies. The TS 29001 certification provides a basis for qualification of the QMS of equipment manufacturers and service suppliers.
