Nadcap Accreditation and AS7108 Certification for Chemical Processing

Companies that offer plating services or metalworks for the aerospace and defense industries must have National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (Nadcap) certification to ensure high-quality and compliant services.

New Method Plating Company, Inc. provides precision electroplating and metal finishing services to the aerospace and military defense sectors. We have Quality Management Systems (QMS) that meet the Nadcap requirements and the Nadcap AS7108 company-level certification that entails specific standards for chemical processing.

What is a Nadcap Accreditation?

Nadcap is a challenging yet lucrative program for aerospace, engineering, defense, and other related sectors. This certification process follows strict government and industry-standard supplier conformance and auditing requirements. It combines prime contractors, suppliers, and technical specialists to unify the approval procedures. Nadcap certification is outstanding because it is based on industry consensus and not only on third-party initiatives. Suppliers who receive Nadcap accreditation are held to the highest standards of quality and process control, as well as personnel training and development.

Nadcap Specifications

As part of the Nadcap accreditation process, suppliers must have a quality system certification like AS9100, or an acceptable equivalent, from a recognized third-party accreditation authority to be eligible for the Nadcap review.

Suppliers without the required quality system certification can add an extra audit day with the Performance Review Institute (PRI) to attain AC7004 aerospace quality system audit or AC7006 for laboratories audit. These serve as an additional Nadcap accreditation requirement. A series of thorough reviews and deliberation follows before the final decision is made.

The process is a lot but is necessary. New Method Plating is proud to have passed all the requirements with flying colors and become Nadcap-certified.
