Farsound achieves Aviation Suppliers Association’s quality system ‘ASA-100’ certification

Farsound is pleased to announce that it has met the requirements of the Aviation Suppliers Association’s Quality System Standard “ASA-100” and FAA Advisory Circular 00-56B.

 

Recent changes introduced by the CAAC (Chinese Airworthiness Authority) mandate aircraft parts distributors to be approved to quality standard ASA100 if they wish to continue supplying parts into China.

 

Following a successful approval assessment audit, demonstrating compliance to the requirements, Farsound has received its approval certificate to ASA100.

 

Graham Mitchell, Farsound’s Quality Director, commented:

“This is a major achievement for Farsound, especially in the very short timescale, and will allow us to continue, and grow our business in China. My thanks go to everyone who has been involved in this project.”

 

Established February 25, 1993, the Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA), based in Washington, D.C., is a not-for-profit association, representing more than 640 global member companies. Collectively, they lead critical logistics programs, purchasing efforts, and distribution of aircraft parts world-wide. Member companies include: distributors, suppliers, surplus sales organizations, repair stations, manufacturers, airlines, operators, and other companies that provide services to the aviation parts supply industry.


The ASA Accreditation Program is a 36 month audit program based on the ASA-100 Standard. The standard was created to comply with the FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 00-56, the Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program. ASA-100 emphasizes issues such as impartiality, competence, and reliability - all specific to the regulated needs of the aerospace industry.
