Aerospace Industry Management
The aerospace industry is unique. Relationships in the supply chain, regulatory risk, competition, and manufacturing methods are different than other industries. ITAR, FAR, and AQAP are acronyms that aerospace companies will recognize instantly and your registrar should too. All accredited registrars must use auditors as a minimal requirement. NSF, however, ensures that its auditors also recognize these acronyms and have more than a basic understanding of AS9100. Trust your aerospace registration to a registrar that specializes in aerospace registration. NSF has dedicated internal resources to ensure that your registration will have the credibility to advance your business.
Remember MIL 9858, 45662, 45208? How about ARD9000 or AS9100? NSF does because its aerospace professionals have been involved in the industry that long. NSF's program managers are industry experts and receive the latest training and are responsible for the technical integrity of our internal and external process to ensure we are designing systems that are specific to the needs of aerospace suppliers. At NSF you will get reliable answers and interpretations that are backed by years of aerospace industry experience. After all you can't pull over at 30,000 feet!
Ask NSF what is right for your management system:
- Sustainability and the environment – On the news and on the agenda of every industry. Who better to define this and provide a solution than NSF who authored the original document that became ISO 14001? Verifying content claims, gap analysis, risk assessments are services that NSF can provide.
- Water and carbon management – Everyone has heard about cap and trade, but what does it mean to the aerospace industry? NSF has data at a nominal charge that demonstrates the impact of carbon management on the aerospace supply chain. Water management will be the next hot topic and we are prepared to measure suppliers' water footprint as well. Without the need for expensive consulting, NSF can measure your carbon and water footprint and that of your supply chain with proprietary software Trucost. No other registrar has this software that was featured in the Newsweek article of the top environmental companies.
- Regulatory risks – Nation-specific aviation requirements, defense industry requirements, and national security are all issues aerospace companies need to deal with. Parts of NSF's auditor training includes these topics top ensure our audits are performed in the right regulatory context.
- Cost savings – Let NSF demonstrate how we can reduce your overall costs while still providing anaerospace customized service. Offering combined services to ISO/TS 16949 – automotive, ISO 13485 – medical device, ISO 20000 – IT service providers, and supplier audits. If your main business is auto and you need to diversify, auditors will audit these standards as they apply to your unique customer base. No need to worry if the auditor will give conflicting observations based on the differences in standards.
