Cirris Systems Achieves AS9100 Certification
Cirris is excited to announce that the company's quality management system is now certified to AS9100D, the aerospace industry's highest standard for manufacturing.
SALT LAKE CITY, June 3, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Already an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, Cirris implemented the requirements of AS9100D to elevate practices that will help ensure the continued high quality and reliability of Cirris products. Our improvement initiatives prompted us to take this important step toward further meeting the needs of our customers.
The AS9100D standard strives to hold companies accountable for the safety and quality of their products. This is especially crucial in the aerospace industry where safety is a top priority. Therefore, the standard doubled the number of requirements in ISO 9001:2015 to include important regulations that ensure safety such as ESD prevention and FOD control. Also included are cleanliness inspections and part accountability to ensure every piece of an aircraft will keep those aboard safe.
The process of certifying involved dedication from all corners of the company. Certification can take a commitment of 6-18 months of top management support and commitment. Cirris found a certification company that was experienced and willing to work with us throughout the process. The company experienced a cultural change—especially in manufacturing. New rules and regulations were demanded of our workers. The changes soon became everyday practices that strengthened and elevated Cirris to a higher level that benefited all employees.
Now that Cirris is AS9100 certified, we can further our work with aerospace companies and other companies that need higher standards. Many businesses in the industry implement quality management systems with additional requirements above ISO 9001:2015. Cirris will be happy to work with these businesses to ensure safety and quality.
The goal of the management system is to continually improve the quality and performance of Cirris’ products and services. As always, our overall mission remains to provide the best ownership experience for all our valued customers.
