Datest attains AS9100D certification for aviation, space and defense industries
Datest, a leading provider of advanced, efficient and mission-critical in-circuit testing, test engineering and X-ray inspection solutions, today announced that it has earned its AS9100D certification. With this milestone, together with the ISO9001:2015 certification, Datest maintains the appropriate, consensus-driven quality benchmarks to serve the aviation, space and defense industries.
AS9100 is an aerospace standard based on the ISO 9001 quality system requirements, adding more stringent requirements specific to the aviation, space and defense industry. The standard takes the requirements of ISO 9001 and supplements them with additional quality system requirements, which are established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements. The intent of the standard is to establish a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry. The new AS9100D revision to the standard adds additional requirements addressing detailed process descriptions and the risks and opportunities associated with their operation; outside interested third party influences; human factors; and professional ethics.
Datest’s President Robert Boguski commented: “Conformity and certification to the AS9100D version of the standard is the price of entry to the aerospace market in these challenging times. Datest welcomes the challenge and the responsibility inherent in operating its quality management system in a demonstrably consistent, thorough and ethical manner. To have earned recognition as doing so by an unbiased third party is an honor and a privilege that we do not take for granted.”
