Eagle Registrations Inc., a third-party certification body that audits businesses to meet international standards, has certified Composites One LLC in Monessen, Pennsylvania, to the ISO9001:2008 with AS9120:2009 Rev A Standard. The assessment was conducted in accordance with requirements of AS9014A. Eagle Registrations is accredited under the aerospace Registrar Management Program.
The ISO family of standards relates to quality management systems and helps organizations ensure they meet customers needs by establishing clear operating procedures and documentation conformance to those procedures as well as identifying areas for continuous improvement. The standards are published by the ANAB (ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board) International Organization of Standards and require third party independent confirmation of conformance to the standards. Composites One’s Monessen location passed the independent certification audit and will receive ISO:9001 certification. In addition, AS9120 certification – a Quality Management Standard specific to military, defense, and aerospace for distributors – was also achieved which puts Composites One in a unique position to service the aerospace and advanced composites customers who require this certification.
“This is a major accomplishment for the organization and credit goes to those who led the effort,” said Composites One President Leon Garoufalis. “Our Monessen DC and Corporate Teams put in a great deal of extra effort to make this happen – on time and without major or minor non-conformities identified, in the first audit.”
“ISO Certification will improve our documentation and internal processes and build additional credibility with our customer base,” added Garoufalis. “We now have the ability and knowledge to certify other locations if required by our customers to address their specific needs.
