Statoil has entered into an international framework agreement with DNV to certify Statoil’s quality and environment systems.

Statoil has entered into an international framework agreement with DNV to certify Statoil’s quality and environment systems. The agreement covers Statoil’s operations in 25 countries, making DNV Statoil’s preferred supplier of accredited system-certification services worldwide.

Statoil’s goal is for all its central operational units to be certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 and/or ISO 14001 – the environmental standard that will apply by the end of 2004. The top management, the management at the head office in Stavanger and several Statoil units have already been certified.

Strong internationalisation process
”As you know, we are currently involved in a strong internationalisation process,” said Statoil’s CEO Olav Fjell when accepting the certificates relating to the top management and head-office management in October. “So it’s important for us to be able to document that we have management systems in place which enable us to deliver what we’ve promised. This certification contributes to the continuous improvement of our work processes.”
”Statoil has an extremely competent organisation and its employees are confident of their own worth,” said DNV’s CEO Miklos Konkoly-Thege on the same occasion. “Management systems are well anchored in this large organisation, whose management model is second to none. During our audits, the Statoil organisation has impressed us with its dynamism and efficiency.”
DNV has made use of its expertise in both Denmark and Norway in its work for Statoil, and will primarily make use of expertise in the Nordic Region, Poland and the Baltic States in its further certification work for Statoil.
