IAC – International Aerospace Coatings announces today that it has received AS9100 and ISO 9001:2015 certification at seven of its paint facilities globally. AS9100 is an internationally recognized aerospace industry standard for maintaining a Quality Management System (QMS).
IAC pioneered the industry in 2011, becoming the first aircraft painting company in the world to achieve AS9100 certification under its flagship Victorville, California location. Since that time, IAC has added more of its facilities into the standard, while also keeping updated to the standard’s latest revisions. Today, IAC has six locations updated to AS9100’s newest revision D, with a seventh location receiving revision D status within the next 30 days. Now, IAC boasts locations globally with both AS9100 and ISO9001:2015 certification including:
North America Europe
|· Fort Worth, Texas||· Dublin, Ireland|
|· Spokane, Washington||· Ostrava, Czech Republic|
|· Victorville, California||· Rome, Italy|
|· Shannon, Ireland|
By achieving AS9100 and ISO9001:2015 certification, aerospace and defense providers across the globe are assured that IAC practices a Quality Management System that consistently drives compliance and continual improvement in a measurable way, and has been verified by third party auditors.
Tom Eller, IAC SVP of Operations North America, stated, “AS9100 and ISO9001:2015 certification builds on IAC’s proven track record within the aerospace community. This milestone further demonstrates our continued commitment to be an industry leader in quality and reliability on a global scale.”
To achieve the certification, IAC was required to participate in a rigorous, multistep review process. The initial application included written documentation that highlighted the quality management system and processes. Once the written application was approved, a physical on-site assessment was conducted at each location. Auditors validated each facilities’ compliance, reviewed the process implementation strategy, and determined the effectiveness of the processes. Since achieving the initial certification, audits are scheduled for regular surveillance to ensure compliance and continuous improvement.
