2 Page 2 BACKGROUND I. General A. This standard has been developed by the Aviation Suppliers Association. The standard provides distributors with the basic framework to assist them in pursuing voluntary accreditation. It is structured to provide those companies which sell parts, supplies and or material for installation on civil aircraft with a quality system to satisfy the requirements outlined in the FAA Advisory Circular (AC) Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program. B. This standard is voluntary and not mandatory. The material contained herein is advisory in nature as it provides the suggested minimum quality program requirements as developed by the Aviation Suppliers Association. C. Compliance with this standard does not necessarily indicate that a distributor is an Accredited Distributor. Those distributors seeking accreditation should contact the Aviation Suppliers Association at the following address: Aviation Suppliers Association Distributor Accreditation Program 2233 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Suite 503 Washington, DC Phone: (202) Fax: (202) D. The content of this standard will be reviewed and revised as necessary to remain in compliance with the FARs as well as other government regulatory requirements. Additionally, the Aviation Suppliers Association will review this document and its related programs to provide the necessary feedback for continuous quality improvement. E. Compliance with the ASA Accreditation Program requires an accreditation audit every 36 months and a surveillance audit during the 36 month period. F. ASA has a logo to identify ASA-100 accredited companies. This logo is a registered accreditation mark (similar to a trademark). Only companies that have met these four criteria are permitted to use the logo: 1) The company has successfully passed an ASA-100 audit; 2) ASA has issued an ASA-100 accreditation certificate to the company; 3) The company currently remains accredited to ASA-100; and,
3 Page 3 II. Definitions 4) The company has signed and returned to ASA the most recent version of the ASA- 100 logo license agreement. AC 00-56: The FAA s Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program advisory circular. All references to AC are meant to reflect the most current applicable revision of the advisory circular. Certified True Copy: An accurate duplication of a document that is certified as such by the distributor. The distributor s certification need not be formal it can be any statement indicating that the copy is an accurate copy. Distributors: Any person engaged in the sale or transfer of parts for installation in appliances and type-certificated aircraft, aircraft engines, or propellers. Distributor Accreditation: An Accreditation Organization s recognition that a distributor s Quality System complies with the standards set forth in a Quality System Standard Organization. Original Certified Statement: The statement received by the distributor from the party that provided the article to the distributor in accordance with the REQUIRED ON RECEIPT column of the documentation matrix of AC Quality System: A network of administrative processes and procedures whose purpose is to protect aircraft parts from damage or degradation, to preserve documentation associated with those parts, and to satisfy customers that purchase or obtain those parts. A distributor s quality system should ensure that the parts sold by the distributor satisfy the requirements found in Appendix 1 of this AC. Quality System Standards: Criteria developed by various organizations such as the Aviation Suppliers Association, that provide means to ensure that the distributor s quality system provides an acceptable level of control as delineated in AC and this standard. Self-Audit/Evaluation: A program that the distributor applies to its quality system in order to evaluate compliance with ASA-100 as well as with the distributor s own written quality system. Significant Change: Any change to the quality manual that implements or revises an element of the quality system that is required by FAA AC or ASA-100. An example of a significant change is a change in facility location because it affects the manner in which the distributor meets ASA-100 section 3(A) and AC 00-56B section 6(b)(4), 6(b)(6) and 6(b)(10). An example of an insignificant change is if the Purchasing Manager's title is changed to 'Vice President of Procurement'. Although the distributor is required to update the references in the manual to the 'Purchasing Manager', the manner in which the distributor complies with AC and ASA-100 remains unchanged. The change in revision date to reflect the change in title is also an insignificant change. Note: if in addition to a change in title there was a concurrent change in
4 Page 4 responsibilities then there could be an impact on AC 00-56B section 6(b)(3) and ASA-100 section 4. Traceability: Track parts, processes, and materials to a source. For an accredited distributor, traceability must meet the minimum standards found in the documentation matrix in Appendix A. III. Cancellations ASA-100 revisions 3.6 and earlier are cancelled as of the effective date of this Revision ASA Letters of Interpretation (LI) through , with the exception of , are incorporated as necessary in this revision and are therefore cancelled not later than the effective date of this Revision. 1. Quality System and Quality Manual A. The distributor shall have an established quality system adequate to assure a quality product that complies with customer specification. 1) The quality system, including procedures and operations, shall be described in detail in a quality manual, or other appropriate documents. 2) ASA-100 accredited distributors must address each and every element of the ASA- 100 standard in its manual. To the extent that some elements in the standard are not applicable to the business, and might otherwise be omitted from the manual, the topic area shall be identified to indicate that the element is not applicable. B. These documents shall be readily available to at least first line supervisors responsible for the activities described. The system shall contain all of the elements of the governing specification adopted by the organization and should be described in the manual or supporting documents, e.g., work cards or check sheets, in sufficient detail to be used as operating instructions. C. The quality manual and/or related documents shall be kept current and readily available to employees and to the customer's auditor or designee. D. The distributor shall notify the accreditation organization, in writing, of any significant changes to its quality system and receive written notification of the acceptance of the change prior to implementation. E. For distributors, the quality control manual shall include, but not be limited to a detailed description of: 1) the quality control department including an organizational chart showing the relationship of quality control to the rest of the organization,
5 Page 5 2) the assignment of personnel by title, responsible for specific functions within the quality system, 3) the distribution and revision control system for the quality documentation and other technical data, where required, 4) the record keeping system to be employed, 5) the organization's training requirements and records, 6) how shelf life-limited parts and supplies will be controlled (if applicable), 7) how incoming discrepant parts and supplies will be controlled, 8) receiving inspection procedures, 9) tool and test equipment calibration program (if applicable), 10) the storage facilities and applicable specifications, 11) the parts identification system employed, 12) the environmental controls used (as appropriate), 13) the system employed to control inspection stamps (if applicable), 14) the self-audit/evaluation program which specifies an annual review, and 15) the corrective action process. 2.

The distributor's quality system shall protect items whose performance will be adversely affected by an "unclean" environment. G. Part Numbering: The distributor shall ensure that no part number ambiguity exists. Parts shall not be labeled with multiple part numbers if such labeling could cause confusion as to the part's manufacturer or applicable specification. A distributor's alteration to or replacement of the data plate or manufacturer's part number is unacceptable, unless authorized by the FAA or an FAA certificate holder.
10 Page 10 H. Non-Conforming Materials: The distributor quality system shall have a procedure for removing suspect or nonconforming material that is identified during receiving inspection (or later), and placing the removed material in a separate area until such suspicion or nonconformance can be properly resolved through the Corrective Action Process. The separate area may be physically segregated or it may be procedurally segregated, as long as the segregation is effective in preventing inadvertent sale or transfer of the suspect or nonconforming material prior to the identification of an appropriate disposition. 1) Aircraft parts, and parts that could be reasonably assumed to be sold for aircraft use, shall be segregated from non-aircraft parts. I. Scrapped Parts: There shall be a documented procedure in place to mutilate scrapped parts by drilling, grinding, or other appropriate means. When the distributor chooses to scrap a part, the part shall be mutilated to the extent necessary to preclude the possibility of it being restored and returned to service. For additional information see ASA Best Practice Disposition of Unsalvageable Aircraft Parts. 1) The distributor shall maintain a record of all serialized and/or life-limited parts scrapped out.
