What is the NADCAP Certified Suppliers List?

The NADCAP certified suppliers list is a company level accreditation based on very specific processes that are used by aerospace suppliers. NADCAP stands for the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program and it really serves as a standard approach to quality assurance in the aerospace industry.

Some of these specific processes include:

  • Coatings
  • Conventional machining
  • Heat treating
  • Chemical processing
  • Welding
  • Nondestructive testing

NADCAP approved suppliers have met an industry driven program that sorts through very highly qualified individuals and companies that have experience in the aerospace industry. The process of making the NADCAP certified suppliers list involves going through an audit that makes use of specific criteria that suppliers must meet.

Organizations and companies that wish to become a NADCAP certified supplier will undergo an audit that is performed by a Performance Review Institute (PRI) auditor. They review specific questions related to the processes mentioned above that are being evaluated for each company or organization during the auditing process.

And as one extra step, when a company or organization is considering the NADCAP audit process to join the list of NADCAP certified suppliers, they must ensure that they have an approved Quality Management System. For NADCAP, some of these quality management systems include ISO/IEC17025 or AS9003. If the organization does not have an approved quality management system, a quality management system audit can also be performed.

Benefits of NADCAP Certification

There are many benefits that come with being considered as part of the NADCAP approved suppliers.

These include:

  • Routine auditing of suppliers is replaced
  • Supplier quality can often be improved throughout the industry as a whole
  • Standardization across the industry is improved
  • Fewer audits are required of NADCAP approved suppliers, like JMP

With the standardization process that has become a part of the accreditation process, security is a massive part of NADCAP approved suppliers. Excellent materials and processes that are being used on said materials in the aerospace industry are meeting the high standards that it takes to be on the NADCAP certified suppliers list.

This means that as a consumer or organization looking to work with any NADCAP approved suppliers, including Jones Metal, you can approach us with the knowledge that we have the industry’s standard certification and a lot of time and effort has been put forth on our part and the part of NADCAP.
