After a very structured process that took more than a year, the Quality Management System of the SelectTech GeoSpatial Advanced Manufacturing Facility (SGAMF) has been assessed by EAGLE Registrations, Inc. to conform to AS9100D Including ISO 9001:2015. This assessment was performed in accordance with the requirements of AS9104/1:2012 (EAGLE is accredited under the Aerospace Registrar Management Program).
This new Certificate of Registration (No. 5753) is effective through 5 August 2021, and covers the design, development, and manufacture of SelectTech GeoSpatial specialized electronic enclosures and systems, specialty products and services, and unmanned aerial systems and flight testing services. SGAMF has held an ISO9001:2008 certification since July 2013.
Achieving AS9100D/ISO 9001:2015 certification is a significant and important milestone for SelectTech. AS9100D is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry. It was released in October, 1999 by the Society of Automotive Engineers and the European Association of Aerospce Industries. AS9100 replaced AS9000 and incorporated the entirety of ISO 9000, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them. The update to Revision D (AS9100D) aligns the structure of the aviation, space, and defense requirements to the new structure of ISO 9110:2015, including implementation of key changes in product safety, counterfeit parts prevention, new risk requirements along with an increased emphasis on risk management in operational processes, reinforced requirements for awareness of individual contribution to product and service quality and safety along with ethical behavior, human factors as a consideration in non-conformity management and corrective action, and clarification and improvement of configuration management to better address stakeholder needs.
SelectTech Geospatial's Quality Manager, Corinne Scott, worked very closely with our staff and the EAGLE advisors and auditors over the past year, and led the final effort that resulted in the successful certification audit and the award of this important new credential for SelectTech.
