The Top 10 Findings in 2021 from the Nadcap/PRI Heat Treat Commodity
While the pandemic may have changed our day-to-day operations last year, it didn't change the fact that Nadcap accreditation in heat treat and other commodities had to be maintained. Nadcap accreditation is crucial to quality systems and operations. While the aerospace industry ebbs and flows, as does the U.S. economy, the commitment to Nadcap accreditation does not.
Suppliers must remain committed to maintaining the most robust quality systems to ensure AS9100, and Nadcap requirements are accounted for and maintained throughout the heat treat process.
When preparing for your next audit, it's beneficial to understand what others may have missed or mistakenly didn't account for. In this article, I examine the top 10 findings from the Nadcap/PRI heat treat commodity from 2021. I will discuss each section in detail and talk about how to avoid becoming a part of the 2022 statistic.
