Electrospec Inc., a leading electronic components distributor, is proud to announce their AS9120 certification. Electrospec has updated its certification in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 and the corresponding SAE aerospace standard, AS9120.
The AS 9120 Standard for a Quality Management System is based on AS 9100 which adds 100+ additional requirements that are specific to distributors who carry aircraft and aerospace components. It ensures Proper Material Handling, Document Control and Records, Correct Product Verification, Purchasing Process Best Practices, Airworthiness Certificates, and Traceability. AS9120 includes requirements that would help a distributor minimize the risk of entering counterfeit parts into the supply chain.

This AS9120 certification will certainly open opportunities in markets that previously were not available. This marks an important step that not only shows Electrospec's dedication to the aerospace industry, but also signifies our overall commitment to quality and continuous improvement".
