Getting Certified & Implementing Aerospace AS9102
Although AS9102 isn’t a formal requirement for aerospace companies that fabricate or produce components and parts, they will get great benefits from it. Starting with the fact they will be recognized globally. Now, implementing ISO standards and obtaining certifications isn’t a simple, fast, and easy task to take.
Every standard comes with a large document where you will find listed all the elements and aspects to consider in order to meet the requirements and obtain the final approval. Since the list of aspects is quite long and companies require effort to make sure they are following the right steps and moving in the right direction, time will be the best ally. Therefore, keep in mind that following the document and norms on it won’t be something you can rush and expect to complete within a short period of time.
Instead, it will take you time, and depending on how capable you are of meeting all the requirements and making the proper and needed changes, the implementation will be faster or slower. That being said, the same companies or organizations that provide you with the certification once you meet all requirements also provide consulting, guidance, and auditing to make it happen.
That being said, how can you obtain certification for AS9102 and from who? Several organizations in the United States can provide you with it. We at ISO Pros have been helping and supporting businesses and aerospace companies for over a decade by implementing Aerospace AS9102 in a systematic and pragmatic way. This has allowed them to obtain consistent documentation, which is a requirement for aerospace components FAI.
Our professionals will go through the entire process with you and make sure you cover all your ISO needs. Since AS9102 is aiming for First Article Inspection to help you reduce the failures in your production and identify the reasons behind them, we will help you to meet every customer’s requirement. After all, it is a matter of meeting them in order to deliver not only a high-quality product but also one that covers all the needs of your customers.
How long will it take to obtain an AS9102 certification?
It always depends on the company and its ability to adapt and change. No aerospace company meets all the aspects and elements written in the standard and guidance document from AS9102 before even starting to implement it.
Therefore, changes will be the first thing to take place and they will be continuous until you meet all the requirements defined in several clauses inside the document. Now, what we can tell you is that it won’t take a couple of days.
Our experts and qualified auditors will be there to ensure the process and implementation is much faster and accurate. However, you also have to put a lot of effort and time to obtain the certification.
Most aerospace companies we have helped over the years were able to obtain it after a few weeks or in only a month after our experts visited them and started providing consulting and auditing. We recommend you to not think about the days, weeks, or months this implementation might take you.
Instead, focus yourself on doing things right and making sure that all the efforts and time we will invest in supporting you to provide your company with the certification won’t go to waste.
