FTI is proud to receive accreditation to the new requirements of ISO 9001:2015/AS9100D. This re-certification of our Quality Management System was awarded by TUV USA Inc. in April of 2018. In meeting these requirements, our customers are assured that the products and services they receive from FTI will be of the highest quality and will comply with internationally accepted aerospace quality standards.
The ISO 9001:2015/AS9100D certification was established to standardize worldwide aerospace quality expectations and to achieve significant improvements in reducing costs throughout the value stream or supply chain. This includes provisions for regulatory requirements and the importance of safe reliability and maintainability. In today's marketplace, aerospace customers are putting more pressure on their suppliers to be in compliance with these standards.
FTI has always been committed to continuous improvement of our products, processes, and services. In 1996, we adopted the ISO 9001 international standard designed to provide companies and organizations with a common approach to applying a Quality Management System. In August of 2001, AS9100 was introduced to include additional quality system requirements for suppliers to the aerospace industry and is now approved by aerospace companies in Asia and Europe as well.
