Internal Auditing

Our auditors conduct internal assessment of our clients AS9100 Quality Management System to help continual improvement and meet the requirements of AS9100’s Internal Audit clause. The scope of internal audits is tailored specifically to our client’s needs and requirements. Companies in the aerospace industry contract us to conduct their internal audit program for a variety of reasons.

  • Better Resource Utilization: Everyone is trying to do more with less these days and we understand your have key personnel working on competing priorities.  Internal Auditing is an area that is easy to outsource to free up internal resources and it is not particularly costly.
  • Access to Best Practices: Our auditors have seen the implementation of AS9100 at hundreds of companies. Their experience is a competitive advantage we leverage for our clients.
  • Expertise: It is expensive and time consuming to become an expert in AS9100 and almost a full time job to keep abreast of changes, such as the transition to Revision D in 2016 and the upcoming release of IA9100.  Many clients have said that outsourcing internal audits is one way to let employees focus on other duties.  For small organizations, this is an even bigger challenge – as they may entirely lack the expertise.  Our auditors are AS9100 experts who can impart their knowledge on your organization and help drive continuous improvement efforts.
  • Impartiality: AS9100 requires auditors to be impartial of the areas being audited and many organizations, especially the smaller companies, struggle to meet this requirement. When certified auditors perform a client’s internal audit, there is no such concern.

Supplier Auditing

The aerospace industry has the most complex and longest lead time supply chain in the world, complicated by an industry move to pushing much of the design and manufacturing work to suppliers. Companies need to be able to identify and mitigate these risks. The performance of Supplier Auditing is one of the best ways to achieve these goals. Some of the key driving factors for the performance of AS9100 Audits include:
