Satair Group UK becomes first aircraft battery maintanance organisation to meet new AS9110C:2016/AS9120B:2016 quality standards

Press Release   •   Nov 07, 2017 11:00 CET

Satair Group UK has become the first organisation in the United Kingdom to meet the requirements of the new AS9110C:2016 and AS9120B:2016 quality management standards for the aviation industry.

This follows a detailed four-day audit by the British Standards Institute (BSI) that has led to the approvals being awarded and revised certificates issued.

The BSI confirmed that Satair Group UK is the first to be assessed and approved for both of these quality standards out of the more than 2,200 registered companies in the approvals database.

Jon Ravenhall, Head of Operations Repair Europe (UK) and Managing Director of Satair Group in the UK stated: “We are pleased to have passed this stringent new quality test and to be the first in the UK aerospace industry to do so. The feedback from the auditors is that these approvals are a great testimony to the work and commitment of all the staff in Satair Group UK.

“These approvals come at a significant time for Satair Group UK as we are in the final stages of preparing for a move early in 2018 to a brand new and much larger facility for aircraft battery maintenance and warehousing and with exciting new expansion plans to be unveiled soon.”

The AS/EN 9100 series of standards are the internationally recognised quality management standards for the aviation, defence and space industries and are operated by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG).

The three main standards in the AS9100 series of Quality Management Systems (QMS) are:

  • AS 9100 - QMS for quality assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing
  • AS 9110 - QMS for maintenance, repair and overhaul of aerospace/defence parts
  • AS 9120 - QMS for quality assurance in stockholding and distribution of aerospace /defence parts
  • Jon Ravenhall added: “In preparation for the move to our new facility we wanted to start from a solid baseline. Transitioning to the new standards before the move to the new site made sense, especially as our EASA Part 145 and FAA Repair Station approvals will need to run concurrently at both locations to enable us to continue to provide the levels of service desired and expected by our customers. We have now set a date with the CAA auditor for the change of site verification audit, which allows us to transfer our current approvals to the new site.”
