To successfully achieve certification for AS9100:2004 and ISO 9001:2008, Datest demonstrated its ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements while maintaining a consistent level of quality throughout its operations.
“Having participated in this arduous process as one of Datest’s trained internal auditors and having conducted a number of audits myself in preparation for our final certification audit, I now have a keen appreciation and sharper vision regarding how sustaining this achievement will benefit Datest. We continually strive to improve and grow, especially in the service of the military/aerospace market,” said Robert Boguski, President of Datest Corp.
The AS9100 standard includes the generic ISO 9001 elements but also includes nearly 100 additional requirements specifically designed to address the stringent, complex and unique demands of the defense and commercial aerospace industry. Successful applicants must demonstrate to an objective third party that they have an effective quality management system (QMS) to consistently satisfy these unforgiving requirements. AS9100 certification is often a prerequisite to supplying the military/aerospace sector.
