Farsound has released that it has met the requirements of the Aviation Suppliers Association’s Quality System Standard ASA-100 and FAA Advisory Circular 00-56B.
Recent changes introduced by the CAAC (Chinese Airworthiness Authority) mandate aircraft parts’ distributors be approved to quality standard ASA100 if they wish to continue supplying parts into China. Following a successful approval assessment audit, demonstrating compliance to the requirements, Farsound has received its approval certificate to ASA100.
The ASA Accreditation Program is a 36-month audit program based on the ASA-100 Standard. The standard was created to comply with the FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 00-56, the Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program. ASA-100 places emphasis on issues such as impartiality, competence, and reliability – all specific to the regulated needs of the aerospace industry.
