AEROSPACE & DEFENSE
In the aerospace and defense industry, safety, reliability, and quality are paramount. Compliance applies to manufacturers and suppliers in the field of development as well as in production and maintenance. MSI offers comprehensive aerospace quality management to organizations across the globe.
AS9100 is the international quality management system (QMS) standard for the aerospace industry, providing suppliers with a system to ensure they produce safe and reliable products according to industry and government regulations.
Certification is important so much as it is vital for anyone working with aerospace manufacturers and suppliers. Most tier-one suppliers won’t do business with a company unless they have AS9100 certification.

KEEP IN MIND
Tier-one suppliers are requiring all their production partners to be AS13100 compliant by 2023.
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 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 organization's current processes.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Determine all audit requirements;
Developing audit checklists, training materials, and other documents;
Work with the Nadcap Management Council for continual improvement.

NADCAP & Special Processes
By: Mary Leigh Enders
"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."
