The purpose of this user feedback review is to capture your assessment on the requirements of an existing specification so that we can further our stated goals of improving procurement and delivery of equipment for the oil and gas industry. This is the first step in the update and revision of our specifications and is a chance for purchasers and suppliers to be able to comment on how the current specification requirements can be improved. During the revision process, the document will be updated in accordance with API Specification 2C, 8th Edition, October 2020.
The JIP33 standardized procurement specification follows a common document structure comprising of four documents, which together with the purchase order define the overall technical specification for procurement.
