ABS Quality Evaluations among First Accredited to Certify to AS9100 Revision D

May 4, 2017

ABS Group's Management Systems Certification team has been at the forefront of the transition to the revised AS9100 standard.

(Houston) ABS Quality Evaluations, Inc. (ABS QE), a subsidiary of ABS Group providing management systems certification services, has been successfully accredited by ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) to provide certification to AS9100 Revision D. The AS9100 standard remains one of the most well-known and successful models of an industry operated and driven standard.

Currently in transition, AS9100 has gone through another amendment to "Revision D." Paul Dionne, ABS QE Global Aerospace Program Manager, says, "Aviation, space and defense companies all have a vested interest in the standard, and many require compliance with AS9100 as a requisite for doing business. To stay true to its function of responding to industry needs, ABS QE continues to monitor and confirm that it has the certification infrastructure for appropriate diligence and oversight within the supply chain."

Building on its significant contributions to global management systems certification, and having received accreditation and designations over the past year that reaffirm its leadership commitment to continuous improvement and quality, ABS QE has been at the forefront of the transition to the revised AS9100 standard.

"Because the safety and performance aspects of aerospace products are critical to stakeholders, it is appropriate to have an uncompromising standard such as AS9100 for guidance," says ABS QE President Alex Weisselberg. "As market demands for the Aerospace industry change, ABS QE provides information tools such as learning seminars and webinars and other industry guidance for our clients as they transition to the latest quality standards and obtain certification."
