Automotive and Aerospace

The automotive and aerospace industries face a rapidly changing landscape, marked by complex global supply chains, emerging technologies, and increasing regulatory demands. In the midst of this, assurance and certification services have emerged as vital tools to navigate these challenges.

They help companies in the automotive and aerospace sectors ensure the utmost safety, quality, and efficiency from component production phase right through to the final product. By gaining certifications, businesses not only exhibit dedication to quality product, but also solidify their commitment to continuous improvement and risk mitigation. Such certifications, compliant with standards like the IATF 16949 and AS9100, serve as a testament to an organization’s adherence to rigorous quality management systems, enhancing their reputation and trustworthiness in the eyes of customers, consumers and stakeholders alike.

Certified management systems act as the backbone to assurance, infusing trust into each segment of the value chain. For businesses in the automotive and aerospace sectors, partnering with experienced certification bodies equips them with the expertise and methodologies to excel, elevating not just their operational efficiency, but also reinforcing their commitment to premier quality and customer satisfaction.

ISO 9001

With over 1.1m certificates around the world, ISO 9001 has the widest appeal of any management system scheme. With its very clear emphasis on focussing the whole of an organisation to delivering the needs of its customers, ISO 9001 is seen across the globe as the certificate which delivers organisational improvement and customer and client satisfaction.

Aerospace Management System Certification

Developed and administered by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), the AS family of standards have evolved from ISO 9001 to meet the exacting and specific needs of the aviation industry. Lead by AS 9100, Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations, certification to these standards enable organisations to demonstrate consistency of their delivery, vital for customers, management of the supply chain and in meeting regulatory and legislative requirements.

Automotive Management System Certification

Developed and administered by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), IATF 16949, ‘was originally created in 1999 by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) with the aim of harmonizing the different assessment and certification systems worldwide in the supply chain for the automotive sector.’ Now an essential part of the automotive industry and its supply chain management, IATF 16949 links closely with ISO 9001.
