These requirements have been adapted from the ISO9001/AS9100 Quality Management Systems, Aerospace and are to be considered as a contractual document in accompaniment with the purchase order.

In the event of any conflict, the requirements of the Purchase Order have precedence over this document. The Quality Requirements are intended to be in addition to, but not in derogation of, the procurement action.

If a Supplier cannot comply with any applicable quality requirement listed within the procurement action, it is the responsibility of the Supplier to identify the requirement in question, notify Astronic of the situation that needs attention and pursue the issue until a resolution has been obtained prior to the acceptance of the Astronic Purchase Order.

Distributors are considered to be a direct Supplier to Astronic and a representative of the manufacture. Therefore

Distributors will be responsible to comply with all the procurement requirements including the Quality Requirements as determined at the time of acceptance of the Astronic Purchase Order.

QR1 – The Supplier’s Quality Management System is to conform to one or more nationally and/or internationally recognized system such as, but not limited to, ISO9000, AS9100, MIL-I-45208, MIL-Q-9858 at its latest revision and as applicable to the types of products and/or services being provided to Astronic.

QR7 – The Supplier shall provide to Astronic, Astronic’s customer, and the regulatory authorities the right of access to all facilities involved in the order and to all applicable documentation and records.

QR8 – The Supplier shall certify that components used to satisfy this order are purchased directly from OEMs, OCMs or Authorized Distributors of OEMs or OCMs and ensure the parts thus procured are not Counterfeit items. The supplier is not authorized to deliver any item procured from sources other than OEMs, OCMs, or Authorized Dealers without written authorization from Astronic. Where applicable, the supplier shall flow down to and ensure compliance with the requirements of this Quality Requirement.
