Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Today, CTG announced that it has received accreditation from the Aviation Suppliers Association, to ASA-100 Quality System Standard. The ASA Accreditation Program (ASAAP) is a 36 month audit program based on the ASA-100 Standard. The standard was created to comply with the FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 00-56A, the Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program. ASA-100 emphasizes issues such as impartiality, competence and reliability - all specific to the regulated needs of the aerospace industry. ASA's experienced auditors have all worked for air carriers, and have extensive experience in the aviation regulations and industry business practices.

“CTG is proud to have added the ASA-100 to its quality management system. This accreditation further shows our commitment to the highest quality standards for our defense, aviation and aerospace clients,” said Denise Gilchrist, CTG’s President and Founder.
ASA President, Michele Dickstein stated, "ASA-100 Accreditation allows distributors to be partners in maintaining the integrity of the supply chain of aerospace parts. CTG's Accreditation sends a strong statement to their customers, and the industry, that CTG is a partner in quality."
History of ASAAP
On September 5, 1996, the FAA published Advisory Circular (AC) 00-56, titled, "Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program." The purpose of this Advisory Circular was to describe an accreditation system for civil aircraft parts distributors on the basis of voluntary industry oversight, and to provide information useful for developing an accreditation program. As a strong proponent of the voluntary accreditation program, the Aviation Suppliers Association assisted the FAA in writing AC 00-56, and, as a result, developed its own quality system standard, ASA-100. The ASA-100 Quality System Standard has since become the leading quality system standard under FAA AC-0056A.
