Intertek Attains AS9110 Accreditation

October 20, 2009

BOXBOROUGH, MA-Intertek, global provider of quality and safety solutions, is pleased to announce that as of October 9, 2009, it is accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) to offer certification to the AS9110 standard. With this accreditation, Intertek becomes part of an elite group of registrars qualified to offer ANAB-accredited certification to the full AS9100 series of standards: AS9100, AS9003, AS9110 and AS9120.

AS9110 is based on ISO 9001 and defines additional quality management system (QMS) requirements for aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organizations. An MRO that is in compliance with the AS9110 standard demonstrates that it can meet the requirements of its customers and any applicable regulatory bodies through the documented implementation of a quality management system that specifically addresses the needs of the industry.

“As one of the top aerospace registrars in the world, Intertek is committed to developing its auditing program to meet the continually evolving needs of the aerospace industry,” says Calin Moldovean, president of Intertek’s systems certification group. “The unparalleled technical expertise of our auditors, coupled with our close involvement in the International Aerospace Quality Group [IAQG], gives us the insight and experience needed to complete certification projects quickly and cost-effectively.”
