The Importance of Quality Control

Quality control is a key consideration for anyone specing and purchasing assembly components because any product or piece of equipment is only as good as the parts going into it. For most businesses this means looking for suppliers with ISO 9000 family of standards certification.

Electronic Fasteners is ISO 9001:2015 certified by National Quality Assurance (NQA), part of NTS, the leading independent provider of environmental simulation testing, inspection and certification services in the United States. NTS serves a broad range of industries, including the civil aviation, space, defense, nuclear, telecommunications, industrial, electronics, medical and automotive markets – many of the mission-critical industries Electronic Fasteners serves. 

Being ISO-9001: 2015 compliant reflects intention and dedication on the part of our business towards optimizing the quality of the products we sell and the services we provide to fully meet the demands and expectations of our customers. We work closely with all of our suppliers to ensure that they, too, are taking all the proper steps to guarantee the quality and integrity of the parts we include in our inventory. It’s an assurance that the products you buy from us are safe, reliable, and perform as represented. When a company is ISO 9001: 2015 certified it’s part of a ripple effect that culminates in customer confidence and peace-of-mind.

Why should all of this be important to you? Because it shows that we take quality control seriously. Our highly-trained and experienced QC inspectors in our QC/QA lab perform standard and custom testing of critical and custom parts utilizing sampling procedures that are MIL-STD-1916 and ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 compliant. We’re laser-focused on quality so our customers can be completely confident in the products they purchase from Electronic Fasteners. 

Our process includes: 

  • Computerized lot traceability to original supplier lots.
  • Electronic approval, sign-off, and maintenance of controlled documentation.
  • Active continuous improvement programs; corrective and preventative action programs.
  • Tooling and gauging calibration traceable to NIST standards.
