Common Qualification System (CQS) is a tool intended to streamline standards, capacities and capabilities of suppliers and service providers in order to help licensees, contractors or any other operator who are carrying out petroleum and natural gas activities in Tanzania to obtain eligible local suppliers and services providers for provision of goods, services or execution of works. In other words, CQS is intended to classify and recognize capacities, capabilities, skills, knowledge and competencies of local suppliers and service providers in their respective areas of specialization or expertise. Further, CQS provides a platform for registration of Tanzanian Professionals who intend to work with International Oil Companies within and outside the country. Also, Licensees and Contractors who are carrying out petroleum and natural gas activities in Tanzania are required to submit their Local Content Plans and Local Content Performance Reports to respective authorities for approval. Thus, CQS provides space for electronic filing of such Plans and Reports.

It is a tool geared to help EWURA and PURA in the monitoring and evaluation of local content performance by licensees, contractors, sub-contractors or any other person carrying out petroleum or natural gas activities in Tanzania.
