Princeps hold AS9120 Quality Certification

AS9120(EN9120) is an enhanced management system for distributors, setting out the advanced requirements demanded by the Aviation, Defence, Security and Space sectors. The purpose of AS9120 is to ensure the product’s safety and reliability through traceability, inventory controls and proper documentation. By working to AS9120 Princeps are an operation certified to the globally recognised aerospace quality standard which has led to process improvements, a reduction in variability of quality, and increases in efficiency.
