Heamar has become one of the first Distributors in the UK to achieve the BSI AS/EN 9120 REV B Certification and can now provide components that go on aircraft in conjunction with its range of specialist tooling.
Within the Aviation, Space and Defence (ASD) industry, maintaining high safety levels is the foremost challenge. Even the smallest flaws in products or services can have fatal consequences. This has led to high expectations for quality, safety and reliability of parts, systems and services. Every organisation working in the ASD industry must therefore demonstrate its commitment to quality and reliability.
The AS/EN 9120 standard was developed for distributors and suppliers working with original equipment manufacturers. The standard focuses on product safety and reliability, and addresses critical product performance, conformity to specifications and airworthiness. It covers the chain of custody, traceability, stock control and availability of records as well.
What will this mean for Heamar’s customers?
Heamar already operates within the ISO 9001-2008 accreditation for the supply of specialist tooling to ensure the systems in place are robust and managed.
With the new AS/EN 9120 certification customers can have complete confidence in purchasing both tooling and components such as backshell adapters & accessories, heatshrink boots and banding straps from Heamar. The later certification of ISO 9001-2015 which supersedes 2008 is encompassed in AS/EN 9120.
BSI Group are part of United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) and are accredited and tested themselves to ensure they can deliver the training and accreditation.
