ExxonMobil laboratory quality standards - Our commitment to quality leadership

Quality standards

ExxonMobil has a long history of commitment to quality leadership. In 1989, following guidance provided in ISO Guide 25 (1978), “General requirements for the competence of calibration and testing laboratories,” ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants introduced their Quality Practices and Guidelines (QP&G) standard addressing laboratory data quality. The guidance document identified the necessary elements of a quality system that must be effectively implemented to ensure data quality and integrity. ISO 17025:2005, the current international standard practice guide for laboratory quality, evolved from the original ISO Guide 25. 

More recently, ASTM D6792-13,“Standard Practice for Quality System in Petroleum Products and Lubricants Testing Laboratories,” first released in 2002, was developed by an ASTM committee of petroleum industry experts, including members from ExxonMobil.

ExxonMobil’s QP&G standard is aligned with both ASTM D6792 and ISO 17025, and acknowledges the guiding principles referenced in the “Guidance on development, implementation and improvement of quality systems in petroleum laboratories” published by the Energy Institute (formerly the Institute of Petroleum, IP) in January 2010.
