NQA Approved as AS9003 Registrar

Published: Monday, August 9, 2004 - 22:00

National Quality Assurance announced it was accredited by the American National Standards Institute-Registrar Accreditation Board to register companies to AS9003.

NQA representatives report the approval demonstrates that its assessors meet the exacting standards and expertise required in the inspection and testing of aerospace systems and that NQA’s certification systems are fully compliant with AS9003—both domestically and internationally.

“The AS9003 certification allows us to continue to support the important subcontractor segment of the industry,” says Jeff Carr, NQA aerospace business unit director. “Being one of the first to provide AS9003 registration demonstrates NQA’s continued commitment and leadership to the aerospace industry.”
