UPDATE: JQS Audit Program 2020

EThe EPIM JQS Service  provides a common framework for performing audits and assessments, reduces duplication of supplier audits, and reduces industry costs. In 2019 close to 150 audit reports have been requested and shared among Operators on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, and this number is expected to nearly double in 2020.

The nomination period is currently in progress and the program will be finalized in January 2020. Suppliers included in the program will be contacted by an EPIM JQS Audit Provider in advance of the planned audit.
