Harting receives AS9100C certification

February 19, 2014 – Harting's manufacturing plant in Elgin, IL has been AS9100C accredited by UL/DQS for the manufacture of both backplanes and cable assemblies. The AS9100C quality management standard is designed to meet the stringent, complex and unique demands encountered in the aerospace and defence industries. Major aerospace manufacturers and their Tier 1 and 2 suppliers worldwide require AS9100 certification or compliance as a condition of doing business with them. The AS9100C standard incorporates all requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and goes further, with 100 additional requirements to satisfy aerospace and defence customers. It provides for a comprehensive quality management system focused on areas directly impacting product safety and reliability including configuration management, purchasing controls, product realization, monitoring and measurement.

The Elgin facility, whose backplane manufacturing is part of the global HARTING Integrated Solutions business unit, also is ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) registered with the US Department of Defense for both backplane and cable assembly manufacturing. ITAR regulates the use of defence-related technical information to safeguard US national interests.
