Prepare For ASA-100 Accreditation
ASA-100 accreditation is an important step for aircraft parts distributors to show their participation in voluntary oversight of their quality systems. To be registered to the ASA-100 standard, your company must be audited by an external accreditation body. Before that takes place, you want to do everything necessary to ensure you are prepared. Whether you have a management system in place or are just developing one, understanding the requirements and having an experienced consultant by your side is key.
SimpleQuE believes in a simple, customized approach that begins with a gap analysis, then defines an action plan to prepare you for accreditation, and more importantly, a maintainable management system. SimpleQuE’s consultants will work with you, using our collective aerospace experience and expertise along with tools and processes to prepare you and your management system.
Our ASA-100 Gap Analysis identifies what needs to be implemented or changed based on the extent to which a company already complies with its current systems. The gap assessment then serves as an action plan, listing each task to be completed. A valuable project management tool, it allows the company to assess its own timing expectations based on the resources available. The gap analysis can also serve as a pre-assessment tool or readiness audit, enabling our consultants to coach and consult when problems are found.
Our Auditors can conduct a full internal audit, evaluating every aspect of your business: every function, every process, every product or service. SimpleQuE’s team of experts has experience from all sides, including to prepare you for your eventual ASA-100 accreditation audit.

Benefits of ASA-100 Accreditation
Having ASA-100 Accreditation provides your company with a variety of benefits. When properly implemented, it creates a more efficient, effective operation for a company while it improves employee awareness and motivation, and increases customer satisfaction.
Here are some additional reasons to get accredited:
- Meet Client Requirements – More and more customers are demanding that their vendors be accredited. If your business doesn’t meet this criteria you could be losing out on sales.
- Increase Revenue – Studies show that certifed organizations are paid 7% more on average, have better sales growth and an improved ROA. (source: iso.org)
- Reduce Waste – By establishing the rigor of a Quality Management System, you can reduce inefficiency and make the most of your business’ time and resources.
- Monitor Brand Image – Maintaining quality in your organization minimizes the chance of a slip-up or error that could hurt your reputation.
- Manage Risk – By adopting these standards, you will learn how to best identify and mitigate threats to your business model.
Most importantly, as your company grows, becoming accreditated will be vital to fostering continued success in the future.
