Auva Certification has been granted accreditation by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to audit and certify organisations in the aerospace industry to AS9100 Rev D quality management systems and AS9120 Rev B Aerospace requirements for stockist distributors. Following a rigorous accreditation process, Auva becomes one of only seven certification bodies in the UK to be able to certify organisations to these standards.
The aerospace industry is a high-risk sector, and regulatory control is needed to capture the requirements and the importance of safety, reliability or maintainability globally. AS9100 is the standard for organisations designing, developing, or providing aviation, space, and defence products and services. Part of the AS9100 family is the AS9120 certification for aerospace stockists and distributors of parts used within the aerospace and defence sector. Organisations that buy and sell parts or materials but perform no manufacturing can be certified to this standard.
Michael Venner, CEO at Auva Certification and a keen aerospace advocate said: “This is a proud day for Team Auva! We are delighted to have achieved this accreditation, especially at a time when the aerospace sector needs our support most. It has certainly been through some turmoil in recent years. I have worked with the aerospace standards for over 10 years and it’s a sector that’s close to my heart. I have seen it change and adapt over the years and I look forward to once again supporting this important industry.”
“When aircraft worldwide were grounded, this has had a lasting knock-on effect throughout the supply chain. However, it is a very resilient sector, and many aerospace suppliers are now growing again. We have a specialist team of aerospace auditors to support these organisations, assess their management systems to a high standard, and, importantly, provide a value-added service. At Auva, we can provide direct access to technical support, something you won’t get from larger CB’s. We look forward to playing our part in keeping the aerospace sector safe and reliable.”
Michael continued: “At Auva, we always aim to go further for our clients and have built strong relationships over the years. Being able to offer aerospace certification is a defining and privileged moment for Auva, and we hope clients will benefit from great value and in-depth knowledge. We have always excelled with customer service, and with our experienced aerospace team, we can support clients and the aerospace sector.”
