Initiating AS9100 Certification
Posted: November 15, 2010 by Ted Fogliani in: Blog Posts
Outsource Manufacturing, Inc. has initiated work to receive AS9100 Certification. For the past several years Outsource Manufacturing has operated with ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 Certifiations, and that has allowed us to service well the standard commercial and industrial product customers, Life Sciences, and the Medical Device markets, along with some military customers. While we have no current requirements or programs that require AS9100 we believe that it will give us some additional presence in the San Diego and U.S. market to support our defense customers and that industry. Because we run our other Quality Systems as well as we have, and we have always included some component of Risk Assessment in evaluating and managing products and programs, we are confident of a successful process to prepare, receive certification and most importantly work within the AS9100 requirements. We are targeting Q1 / Q2 of 2011 to complete certification. With the AS9100 just coming through a Revision change, first Audits on Rev C will start in early 2011 and we look forward to being an early certification recipient against that new Rev.
