AS9100 & ISO 9001 Quality Certifications.
Abaco Systems is committed to delivering value to our customers through maintaining and improving quality assurance and risk management processes.
We maintain AS9100 certification that provides us with the structure to service our customers and is an inward source of industry recognized quality control. We adopt stringent safety, quality and reliability practices that are critical principles in the defense and aerospace industries.
Our customers and stakeholders in the supply chain seek the assurance that their business partners meet, and will continue to meet, their needs for sustainable quality. Our AS9100 certification enables systems to address this challenge and an opportunity to improve our quality management and capitalize on business building opportunities.
Our primary sites have achieved certification, demonstrating commitment to quality, customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement to our business processes. Certifying our Quality Management System against the AS9100 standards aligns our quality management system with the standards that are expected, recognized and adopted by our customers.
The AS9100 standards series is an ISO 9001-based set of quality standards developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) that addresses the stringent quality requirements of the aerospace industry.
JOSCAR (Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register) is an approved accreditation system required by growing number of suppliers in the aerospace, defence and security industry. JOSCAR enables registered prime contractors such as: BAE Systems, Babcock, Boeing, General Dynamics, Leidos, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin, MBDA, Raytheon, Rolls Royce Submarines, QinetiQ and the UK MoD, to confidently trade with pre-qualified companies such as Abaco Systems, and provides access to a centralised supplier database.
To attain accreditation, Abaco Systems was assessed across a wide range of business parameters such as financial, legal, anti-bribery and corruption, environmental and sustainability, quality, product safety, counterfeit materials and IT security.
JOSCAR membership is designed to improve efficiency of both the supplier and buyer communities by ensuring that companies only use products and solutions of the highest quality and that comply with best practices and industry standards.
