NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is a complex yet rewarding accreditation that is based on special processes like chemical processing, heat treating, and others that are used by aerospace suppliers. This certification process is intended to be a managed approach to conformity and auditing that follows strict requirements for suppliers that are standardized by government and industry leaders. The Performance Review Institute (PRI) is the accrediting body that administers NADCAP certifications. 

We can help prepare your organization for certification by reviewing your quality management system and performing regular audits of your special process in line with  NADCAP requirements. Our in-depth audit package will provide the PRI auditor with a full scope of your organizations current processes.

NADCAP & Special Processes 

By: Tim Jennison

"The aerospace industry has compartmentalized the complex structure of checks and balances through the means of forming the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (NADCAP). NADCAP is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of 'special processes' that brings together technical experts from prime contractors, suppliers and representatives from government to work together and establish requirements for approval of suppliers using a standardized approach. Before establishing NADCAP, aerospace companies audited their own Suppliers to their own process requirements to verify compliance."
