ISO Certification Anoints IADC Accreditation for 15th Straight Year

IADC continues its tradition of managing high-quality training and accreditation within the drilling industry. For the 15th consecutive year, IADC has passed the annual recertification process required for its accreditation and credentialing programs to be ISO 9001:2015 certified. This is a distinct honor for the energy industry as IADC’s accreditation initiatives meet the quality and consistency of internationally recognized standards.

Quality, Consistency, & Transparency in Safety Training

IADC is the only accrediting body in the drilling industry to hold this certification.

ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard dedicated to Quality Management Systems (QMS). Certified organizations must go through a two-day audit every year to check all procedures, processes, and records are in conformance with the 83 ISO requirements. The annual audit looked at IADC from the top-down, from reviews of top management, quality assurance, organizational resources, or product development.

ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard dedicated to Quality Management Systems (QMS). It outlines a framework for improving quality and a vocabulary of understanding for any organization looking to provide products and services that consistently meet the requirements and expectations of customers and other relevant interested parties in the most efficient manner possible. The QMS is the aggregate of all the processes, resources, assets, and cultural values that support the goal of customer satisfaction and organizational efficiency.
