EDM Receives AS9100D Certification 2nd April 2019

EDM AS9100D Capability Statement.

AS9100D is a quality certification that is recognised worldwide and demonstrates an organisation's compliance to the highest of standards within the aviation, space and defence industries. Compliance and/or regulation to AS9100D is a common condition for doing business for many organisations in these aerospace and defence markets.

EDM Ltd already holds ISO 9001:2015. However, in response to customer demand, our Manchester facility has been AS9100D certified by NQA for the Manufacture of machined components by both manual and Computer Numerically Controlled means from ferrous, nonferrous and exotic materials and plastics in accordance with customer supplied propriety drawings, processes and procedures.


AS9100D includes all the elements of the ISO 9001 standard but has a multitude of additional requirements to meet the stringent demands of aerospace, defence and security customers, placing rigorous emphasis on end-to-end quality processes, risk management and continuous improvement. 

AS9100D is the current revision of the AS9100 certification and features important new sub-clauses that place greater scrutiny on product safety and the prevention of counterfeit parts. It also brings the underlying structure for the system in line with ISO 9001:2015.

This certification allows us to work on both aerospace and military-specific applications, and cements our position as a high-quality, trusted manufacturer within these markets. Our processes and products are of the highest quality and are fully certified.
