API STD 20J-2017 pdf free download.Qualification of Distributors of Metallic Materials for Use in the Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries.
1 Scope 1.1 Purpose This API standard specifies requirements for the qualification of distributors of metallic materials used in the petroleum and natural gas industries. 1.2 Applicability This standard is applicable to distributors of metallic bar, plate, and tubular products where API product standards require such services or are otherwise specified as a requirement for compliance. For organizations that manufacture and distribute metallic material, this standard only addresses the distribution portion of their processes. NOTE This standard does not limit the responsibility of any manufacturer of commercial products utilizing metallic materials and manufactured to an API Standard from its responsibility for compliance with all applicable requirements of that API Standard. 1.3 Distributor Qualification Level (DQL) This API standard establishes the requirements for two distributor qualification levels (DQL). These DQL levels define different levels of distributor quality controls and qualification requirements. 2 Normative References The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.

3.1.2 calibration Comparison and adjustment to a standard of known accuracy 3.1.3 chemical analysis Determination of the chemical composition of material 3.1.4 conformance Meeting specified requirements 3.1.5 distributor An organization that maintains and provides metallic bar, plate, and tubular products for resale 3.1.6 heat treatment A specified, timed sequence of controlled heating and cooling of materials for the purpose of changing physical or mechanical properties 3.1.7 metallic material Any product included in the scope of this standard 3.1.8 mill A factory in which metals are hot worked, cold worked, or melted and cast into standard shapes suitable for secondary fabrication into commercial product 3.1.9 off-site A related facility of the organization, operating under the same Quality Management System as the identified distributor of the product 3.1.10 on-site The distributor’s facility 3.1.11 outsourced A function or process that is performed by an external supplier on behalf of the distributor 3.1.12 processes that require validation Processes where resulting output cannot be verified by subsequent monitoring or measurement 3.1.13 receiving verification The process of ensuring the product received meets purchase requirements Records of the results of the mill approval, including resulting actions, shall be maintained. 7.3.3 Periodic Evaluation of a Mill DQL-1 Requirements The distributor shall maintain a documented procedure for the monitoring and re evaluation of mills. The procedure shall identify the minimum performance requirements and the process for continual monitoring of the mill against these requirements. The frequency of periodic evaluation shall be based on a risk assessment of product quality and the availability of alternate sources. The risk assessment shall take into account a mill’s performance history, purchasing frequency, and any changes that have occurred at the facility. The planned frequency of the evaluation shall be documented. The mill re-evaluation shall be performed through one or more of the following: on-site audit; technical assessment; review of supplier performance; or 一verification of an active applicable API license. The procedure shall address the actions required when a mill does not meet these requirements. Records of the results of the mill periodic evaluation, including resulting actions, shall be maintained.
