GWT has done it again! We successfully navigated through a rigorous 4-day audit event with our quality partner NSF-ISR. It was particularly gratifying because it was our 20 year Anniversary of having a successful quality system in place. This year’s audit by our registrar NSF-ISR was very challenging because it was a 4-day start of the contract audit that tests all facets of the organization. At the beginning of our 20 year span, GWT saw an organic process of originating the system in home grown fashion with the help of CMTC and then adapting frequently over the two decade period. Just in the last few years, we have come full circle with a total & fresh renovation of the system to achieve a Quality Manual that is realigned closely with the newest ISO-9001 and AS9100 standards issued in 2015 & 2016.
GWT has successfully passed a rigorous four day audit of its AS9100 / ISO 9001 quality program and has renewed their three year contract with NSF-ISR. Every six months, NSF-ISR will be visiting the plant to conduct a one day regularly scheduled surveillance audit to ensure that GWTï¿½s quality system is operating effectively and as documented.
Readying itself for the aerospace and military markets, Golden West Technology took a significant step by achieving AS9100 registration in June of 2007. Over the past six months, the company has upgraded and implemented a more stringent set of quality processes and documentation culminating in the approval of its quality system in a 3 day audit by our Registrar, NSF-ISR Ltd.
AS9100 fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9000 while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. Furthermore, potential customers have the ability to tap into the OASIS Database to scrutinize GWTï¿½s quality performance going forward. The bottom line isï¿½GWT is working hard every day to improve its quality programs for the benefit of all its customers.
