Celebrating 20 years in the industry, the Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA), based in Washington, D.C., is a not-for-profit association, representing more than 540 global member companies that are positively shaping the aviation industry. Collectively, they lead critical logistics programs, purchasing efforts, and distribution of aircraft parts world-wide. Member companies include: distributors, suppliers, surplus sales organizations, repair stations, manufacturers, airlines, operators, and other companies that provide services to the aviation parts supply industry. With approximately 140 years combined aviation leadership experience, ASA’s Board of Directors and Corporate Officers focus the organization’s energies on regulatory and legal matters such as safety, international compliance, and ethical business practices that impact the aviation parts supply industry. As a result of the group’s auditing capabilities, over 300 companies have received global accreditation to the ASA-100 Quality System Standard and FAA Advisory Circular 00-56 since 1996. As the Association has grown over the years, so has the number of services it is able to provide to the industry at-large. The Aviation Suppliers Association Certification Body (ASACB), is an ANAB accredited certification body for ISO 9001:2008, AS9100 and AS9120 audits.
