OES awarded AS9100 Rev D Accreditation

Posted 3 October 2017 · Add Comment

Cheltenham based specialist engineering and manufacturing company Omega Engineering Services (OES), has been named as one of the first to be awarded the updated AS9100 Rev D Accreditation standard.

After a year of delay and several extra drafts, the AS9100:2016 Rev D was published in September 2016, with the revised version of the Aerospace Quality Management System encompassing ISO 9001:2015 and adding the QMS requirements for aerospace and defence industries (approx. 105 additional requirements). 

Some of the significant changes include the High-Level Structure (HSL) change. Also, there is the addition of Context, Interested-party expectations and risk-based thinking as three of the biggest changes in the standard.

In 2014, Omega Engineering Services added the AS9100 Rev C accreditation to its portfolio with a clear 100% external audit and has since held the certification. 

Amie Hewlett, QHSE Officer, said: “In August 2017 Omega Engineering Services took the step of being one of the first companies in the UK to be audited to the new Rev D standard, which included 6 ‘man’ days of audits across the whole site encompassing design, manufacturing, purchasing and sales. Following a demanding audit schedule, we are pleased to announce that Omega Engineering Services is fully approved to AS9100 Rev D”. 

Omega Engineering Services (OES) provide high quality engineering and manufacturing services to customers in aerospace, defence and other safety critical industries.
