ESM Hampshire Mill or Elgiloy Specialty Metals in Hampshire, Illinois, located at One Hauk Road Hampshire, IL 60140, has announced with pride that they have received a new certification. The Nadcap Management Council had granted and awarded the certificate to demonstrate conformance and recognition of accreditation for certain services as listed on the Qualified Manufacturers List (QML) in www.eAuditNet.com, to the revision in effect at the time of the audit for Materials Testing Laboratories.
Nadcap provides an industry-managed approach to the assessment of conformity in companies. Various technical experts from both government and industry collaborate in specifying the requirements for accreditation. The result is a standardized approach to quality assurance and the elimination of redundancy in auditing throughout the aerospace industry. This is because prime contractors, government representatives, and suppliers have combined their expertise in establishing a program that accomplishes several objectives.
The objectives of Nadcap include the establishment of stringent industry standards that comply with the requirements of all participants; replacement of the usual auditing of suppliers with just one approved through a consensus decision-making procedure of members from the user community; performance of technically superior and more in-depth critical process audits, enhancement of supplier quality through strict criteria; reduction of costs through standardization; use of technically well-versed auditors to ensure process familiarity; and more frequent audits for prime contractors and fewer audits for suppliers.
