Compliance to NADCAP Accreditations

NADCAP Accredited
    • Aerospace Quality System [AC7004]
    • Chemical Processing [AC7108]

In the process of becoming compliant the quality standards, AOTCO had to: Say what we do – do what we say – and prove it

In saying what we do, we created a Quality Policy – stating the quality goals of the company, a Quality Manual (telling why we’ve implemented a quality management system and Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions – telling how we’ve implemented our quality management system. Each procedure and work instruction addresses each element of the Nadcap Requirements.

In proving it, we provided solid evidence that we are doing what we say. Proof/evidence takes the form of completed records, reports, process sheets, etc.
