ATS' AC7101 Accredited Materials Testing Services
With ATS’ continued excellence in providing high-quality Materials Testing services, it is only natural that several service offerings have received the Nadcap AC7101 accreditation. The AC7101 accreditation places an inspiring distinction on the zeal of ATS to continue its mission in adding unrecognized value to our client services.
The AC7101 accreditation is an industry-managed program, recognizing ATS with expertise in the process and quality control standards followed throughout several Materials Testing services. AC7101 accreditation is granted upon an audit, which is conducted by the Performance Review Institute (PRI). The completed audit is presented to the appropriate Nadcap Task Group for approval. A Nadcap Task Group is a group of experts who focus on enhancing the quality and the procedures performed to ensure Nadcap accreditation remains technically robust. Any issues identified must be resolved via a Nadcap Non-Conformance Report, in which AC7101 accreditation is granted upon the completion of all NCRs.
Scope of Certification
The introduction of Nadcap in 1990 was to ensure certain quality control and standardization measures were in place for aerospace service providers seeking Nadcap accreditation. ATS’s AC7101 accreditation scope covers Nadcap criteria between AC7101/1 to AC7101/7, including Chemical Analysis (AES, OES, XRF), Mechanical Testing and Specimen Preparation (Tensile, Impact, Fatigue, Fracture Toughness), Metallography and Microindentation Hardness, Hardness Testing (Rockwell, Vickers), and Corrosion Testing (SCC, IGA, IGO). The Nadcap accreditation validates ATS’ commitment to continuously refine the process and quality control standards of its services.
