Electronic Craftsmen is proud to announce our Re-Registration to Aerospace Standard AS9100D (including the base standard, ISO9001:2015). This is our second full Re-Registration Audit to this revision which was completed with zero nonconformances against our Quality System. We appreciate our hard-working team for this accomplishment!
"We continuously learn and improve as these standards evolve...it's a challenging but rewarding experience," says Otilia Vandici, M.Eng, Quality Manager.
Electronic Craftsmen was a pioneer in the adoption of the original ISO 9000:1987 standard with our first Registration in January 1992. When the AS9100 standard was first released in 1999, we received registration soon after it was available in early 2001. Our Quality Management System has continually evolved to meet the needs of each revision of these two standards.
Electronic Craftsmen can be found in the Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS) maintained by the IAQG. This searchable database is available to any company in the aerospace industry that is looking to confirm 3rdparty supplier surveillance and includes company contact information as well as details about audit performance.

About AS9100 Rev D
AS9100 Rev D is issued by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) with enhanced requirements based on well-known standard ISO 9001:2015. Both AS9100 and ISO 9001 include requirements for implementing a Quality Management System but AS9100 contains additional stringent requirements above and beyond those in ISO 9001 that address the unique needs of the aerospace industry.
This revision puts particular emphasis on risk-based thinking and operational risk management, enhanced supplier and production controls criteria, and additional requirements for product verification (including first article). Attention is placed on product safety, the prevention of counterfeit parts, and ethical behavior and human factors. Additionally, the requirements for the design and development and non-conforming product processes have been heightened.
