AS9100C Certified and NADCAP Approved
If you are in the aerospace industry, you have likely heard of these terms. However, for your convenience, we have put together a quick overview of the two, what they mean, and what the differences are; let’s take a look!
What Is NADCAP?
NADCAP is the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program. It is a worldwide cooperative program between the aerospace industry and the government that standardizes quality assurance requirements.
In order to become NADCAP certified, a company must meet certain criteria and undergo a rigorous auditing process.
These criteria include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Use of certified personnel
- Use of up-to-date facilities and equipment
- Implementation of quality assurance procedures
What Is AS91000D?
AS91000D is a standard developed by the aerospace industry that outlines the requirements for Quality Management Systems (QMS). In order to become AS91000D certified, a company must develop and implement a QMS that meets the requirements of the standard.
The benefits of becoming AS91000D certified include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Increased efficiency
- Reduced costs
NADCAP vs AS9100D: The Differences
Now that we have looked at what each certification entails, let’s take a look at the main differences between the two.
The main difference between NADCAP and AS91000D is that NADCAP is focused on quality assurance, while AS91000D is focused on quality management.
Another difference between the two certifications is that NADCAP is voluntary, while AS91000D is mandatory for companies that want to do business with the aerospace industry.
Finally, NADCAP certification is granted by an independent organization, while AS91000D certification is granted by the company itself.
