AS9120 Certification


Arcadia is certified and registered to the SAE Aerospace (Society of Automotive Engineers aerospace quality standards body), AS9120 military and aerospace quality standard. 


Arcadia's registrar is NQA, an internationally recognized leader in its field, and fully accredited by ANAB, the North American organization with oversight over such aerospace registrars.  NQA clients include many of the worlds largest aerospace and defense industry companies.


Arcadia has been fully compliant with the requirements of AS9120 since 2005.  Arcadia became certified and registered to AS9120 in January of 2009. 


Arcadia's formal registration audit for AS9120 resulted in a perfect score of 1000 out of a potential 1000 points -- with literally no major or minor non-conformances observed -- the first such perfect score we are aware of in the independent channel for electronic components.  Subsequent audits have likewise demonstrated high levels of performance and minimal non-conformances.
