If your organisation resells, distributes and warehouses parts for aircraft or other aerospace components, AS9120 certification from Lloyd’s Register (LR) can help you minimise potential risk which may impact the performance of your commodities.
Remote audits provide you with a fast and flexible way to maintain your audit schedule. They help reduce carbon footprint associated with travel, as well as health and safety risks for people working on hazardous sites or hard to reach areas. Outcomes are consistent with onsite audits, so the integrity of your audit and accredited certification remains the same.
Benefits of AS9120
Applicable to stockists and distributors, achieving AS9120 certification with LR helps you to focus on improving product delivery while maintaining conformance to standard specifications. By implementing an AS9120 quality management system, you are assured you have the processes in place to deliver the best possible products available to your customers, ensuring their needs and expectations are met and even surpassed.
New business relationships
In many cases, AS9120 certification with LR provides you with a real competitive advantage by recognising the quality of your management system. This helps your organisation to develop new business relationships with suppliers, customers and other key stakeholders within the global aerospace industry.
If you meet and are audited against the requirements of AS9120 by an LR assessor, it can help your organisation to focus and realign its processes, leading to increased traceability and control of records. Your AS9120 management system also encourages you to keep adjusting your organisation’s approaches to match international requirements.
AS9120 enables you to mitigate, manage and reduce the risk of damage to your aerospace products and commodities. It also enables you to identify risks before they become issues, potentially reducing the cost to your business and improving the bottom line.
