A&P Technology, Inc. became AS9000 compliant and ISO 9002 registered in December, 1998. The registration process began in April, 1998 as a direct response to A&P Technology's rapid growth. Recently, A&P upgraded its certification to ISO 9001:2008 with AS9100:2009 Rev C. A&P Tech views accreditation as a tool for managing this growth and maintaining its reputation in the industry as a producer of quality braided reinforcements.
Companies that meet the registration criteria must demonstrate adherence to a comprehensive range of standards, including quality systems, design control, purchaser satisfaction, management responsibility, inspection and testing, handling and delivery, training, service, and many other factors. More and more U.S. companies are seeking ISO Registration, which is becoming increasingly essential for doing business domestically and internationally.
