Halliburton Management System

The Halliburton Management System (HMS) outlines how we work. HMS is the integrated set of policies, business practices, and procedures that are used by Halliburton in defining, planning, and executing business activities. It enables employees to work safely, consistently and effectively by providing reliable standardized processes such as Design of Service, Contingency Planning, Management of Change and Stop Work Authority.

HMS complies with the requirements of all relevant recognized management system standards, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, API Q1, API Q2 and API RP 75.


American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification Q2 Certification is a risk-based quality management system approach that focuses on competency, service design, contingency planning, supply chain controls, preventive maintenance, inspection, service quality plans and management of change. It is the first international standard that outlines fundamental, risk-based quality management systems for oil and natural gas services companies.

We continue to lead the industry in gaining API Q2 certification. In 2019, 5 of our facilities received certification in Oman.
