The certification acknowledges the company’s comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products in a key growth market where there is rising demand.

Employees at MEPL and TIPLThe AS9100D designation, considered the aerospace industry gold standard for quality assurance, is offered only to organizations that develop and produce aviation, space, and defense products while demonstrating strict adherence to quality, reliability, and safety standards.

The update of AS9100 from revision C to D includes the full text of ISO 9001:2015. In addition to aligning the structure of the aviation, space, and defense requirements to the new structure of ISO 9001:2015, the following key changes were implemented:

  • Product Safety was added in a new clause and in other areas
  • Counterfeit Parts Prevention was added in a new clause and in other areas (this was already in place in the AS9110 and AS9120 standards)
  • Risk clause was merged with the new ISO 9001 risk requirements along with an increased emphasis on risks in operational processes
  • Awareness clause was added with reinforced requirements for awareness of individual contribution to product and service quality and safety along with ethical behavior
  • Human Factors are included as a consideration in nonconformity management and corrective action
  • Configuration Management was clarified and improved to address stakeholder needs

“Achieving the AS9100D certification is part of our ongoing effort to develop and reinforce our existing ISO quality systems in support of our customer base,” said Savio Carvalho, TIPL General Manager & Director. “We recognize a growing demand in the aerospace industry and have taken the necessary steps to become an implicitly trusted manufacturer of these products and parts.
