Precision Plate Ltd.


Precision Plate Achieves Nadcap Registration

Nadcap (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) is an industry-managed approach to conformity assessment of 'special processes' that brings together technical experts from prime contractors, suppliers and representatives from government to work together and establish requirements for approval of suppliers using a standardized approach.

Unlike traditional third party programs, Nadcap approval is granted based upon industry consensus

NADCAP certified metal platers are definitely not a dime a dozen.

Precision Plate Ltd. achieved certification in 2018 !

Getting this certification is nothing short of grueling. In fact, it is so tough to get NADCAP certification that many companies work with consultants before they even venture into the process – so that they’ll know exactly what to expect and can minimize their chances of failure as much as possible!

1. Steps to Certification

  • Documented everything from in our Quality System, working procedures and quality control.

  • Submitted all company manuals to the Performance Review Institute (the organization that’s responsible for evaluating companies and handing out NADCAP certification).

  • The Institute reviewed the materials, the company’s practices, and instructed us regarding what changes needed to be made – even if they’re teeny-tiny tweaks that anyone else would have been hard-pressed to even notice.

  • Implementated the required changes.

  • Performance audit perfromed and certification granted

2. Ongoing Nadcap compliance

  • As a Certified company we didn't get to celebrate for long. In fact, as soon as our certification went through, we are asked to schedule the next year’s re-certification audit! That’s right; this process takes place once a year.
