Caproco’s designs, manufacturing processes and finished parts meet an array of industry specifications and codes.
Both the Canadian Standards Association and the American Society for Quality Control have adopted the ISO standards. To achieve the ISO 9000 designation, a manufacturing company must demonstrate effective documentation of quality system elements to be implemented in order to maintain an efficient quality system in the company.

Caproco achieved ISO certification in June 1995, and is registered with the Dutch Council for Accreditation and the Standards Council of Canada.
Caproco material selection complies with the NACE material requirements that dictate the necessary characteristics of a material where corrosion is a factor in the selection, application and maintenance of the material.
This latest standard is ANSI approved and internationally recognized. It specifies the metallic material requirements for resistance to sulfide stress cracking (SSC) for petroleum production, drilling, gathering/flow line equipment, and field processing facilities to be used in H2S-bearing hydrocarbon service. The standard is applicable to all components of equipment exposed to sour environments where failure by SSC would prevent the equipment from being restored to an operating condition while continuing to contain pressure; compromise the integrity of the pressure-containment system; and/or prevent the basic function of the equipment from occurring. Sections of the standard address: ferrous and nonferrous metals; fabrication; bolting; plating and coatings; special components; valves and chokes; wells, flow lines, gathering lines, facilities, field processing plants; and drilling and well-servicing equipment.
