Cyclops are Awarded AS9120 Accreditation!

Cyclops are very pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded the prestigious AS9120 quality accreditation.

The AS9120 Standard is the requirements for a Quality Management System based on AS9100 which adds 100+ additional requirements that are specific to distributors who carry aircraft electronic components like, fasteners, electronics, gaskets, etc. It helps ensure that the materials are handled properly and the part is tracked from manufacturer to customer.

AS9120 was developed for pass-through distributors of aerospace items and addresses chain of custody, traceability, control and availability of records. AS9120 provides suppliers with a comprehensive quality system focused on areas directly impacting product safety and reliability including:
  • Splitting - Specific requirements for batch splitting and lot splitting, and how conformance to specification is maintained.
  • Airworthiness Certificates - Defines the documents issued by cognizant civil aviation authorities that certifies that parts meet the required airworthiness requirements.
  • Control of records - Record requirements differ significantly for distributors of aerospace product. AS9120 defines those requirements.
  • Traceability - Defines specific requirements for traceability from receipt until delivery.
  • Evidence of Conformance - Specific documents are required by distributors as evidence of conformance. AS9120 defines those requirements.
An AS9120 certificate demonstrates that we are committed to our customers and to the Aerospace, Military and Defence industries.

Cyclops was awarded the AS9120 by the world’s leading certification, audit and verification organisation, SGS. SGS are a trusted leader in certification to standards in the aerospace industry and their recommendations ensure our operations are efficient and cost-effective, while complying with the requirements of the AS9120 Standard.
