Yearly Business Management Surveillance Audit reveals process improvement that has achieved a rare 100% performance rating.

Improving over the initial audit that gave the company full certification in 2009, Erickson Air-Crane has received the highest score available for annual surveillance audits performed to ensure conformity to the AS9100 Business Management Standard. The recurring audit, performed by United Registrar Services (www.unitedregistrars.com), involved interviews with 71 members of management, production support, and production personnel including observations and inspections specific to the content of audit.

The results of this year’s audit revealed conformance with all items, or 100% conformity to the AS9100 worldwide business management standard. 

Maintaining AS9100 certification has been part of Erickson’s new strategic plan which also comprises an expansion of service offerings to include a robust aviation MRO business, a greatly expanded training program, and new design and manufacturing concepts.

AS9100 is based on the ISO 9001:2000 quality system requirements. These are supplemented by additional quality system requirements established by the aerospace industry to satisfy DOD, NASA, and FAA quality requirements. The development of the supplemental requirements was the result of an international effort by aerospace companies with a common goal of establishing a single quality management system for use within the aerospace industry. AS9100 is a product of this international effort.

EAC’s business management plans have been developed with the goal of enhancing customer satisfaction through the effective application of this international system. AS9100 certification ensures conformance to customer requirements in an environment that promotes continual improvement.
