The aviation industry always attaches great importance to aircraft safety. All aviation parts and consumables must be suited for flying and do not compromise flight safety. For the warehousing and distribution services of aviation parts and consumables, the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) has developed the “AS9120 Quality Management Systems - Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Distributors”. Many airlines have demanded distributors to hold valid AS9120 certificates as a requirement for market entry.
Under AS9120 quality management system, a company must ensure smooth operation, especially in logistics and warehouse management, and fulfil three key requirements: counterfeit goods prevention, product safety and reduced human errors.
A close partner of the aviation industry, HKPC has helped set up the Hong Kong Aviation Industry Association and is quite familiar with the demands and management system standards of the industry. Recently, HKPC has helped a local aviation parts and consumables distributor to successfully attain AS9120 certification, signifying that both operation and management of the company are of international standards and enabling it to compete for the distribution rights of more aviation equipment.
Quality management system certification and technical consultancy services for the aviation industry are available from HKPC. For more information, please contact us.
