JMC Awarded International Standard for Aerospace Quality Management Systems
UK based, JMC Recruitment Solutions, have achieved the BS EN 9100-2018 certification.
BS EN 9100-2018 is an internationally recognized Quality Management System (QMS) standard, designed to cater to the specific requirements of the aerospace industry. The standard is intended to drive organisations towards continuous improvement, ensuring their focus on meeting customer requirements, and ensuring customer satisfaction.
JMC Quality Manager, Michael Marshall, commented on the motivation behind upgrading to the new standard; “JMC was already certified to ISO9001-2015 standard; however, because the majority of our business revolves around aviation and aerospace, pursuing the BS EN 9100-2018 standard and enhancing our QMS to meet the more rigorous requirements was a natural progression. Attaining this standard will also allow us to seek opportunities and expand our business into new avenues where this specific aviation standard is a requirement.”
The pathway that led to JMC achieving this standard took place over several years. The JMC QMS was certified to ISO9001-2008 in 2014 before upgrading to ISO9001-2015 in March 2018. The work that went into achieving these standards, including the development of a suite of documentation, processes and procedures, ensured that the business had an excellent foundation from which to build to the more rigorous standard.
Following a carefully managed project to ensure that the firm was able to comply with the precise wording of the BS EN 9100-2018 requirements, a certification audit was completed by a panel of BSI auditors.
The audit was completed and the JMC QMS emerged without any reported non-compliance items or observations.
Mick Marshall followed up by stating;
“The fact that our upgraded quality management system passed the audits with flying colours really highlights the commitment of the JMC Team and management to ensuring the quality of service we provide is not only maintained but continuously improved.”
Warren Crook, Managing Director, commented on the advantage that this development offers JMC;
Although many major aircraft maintenance organisations and design organisations hold the BS EN 9100-2018 accreditation, we believe that obtaining this accreditation, as a recruitment company, offers us a distinct advantage over our competition. This is something that we are very proud of.”
“Additionally, now that JMC has achieved BS EN 9100-2018, our existing and future customers can rest assured that the service our team provides will be held to the same high standards of monitoring and control as their own.”
