Wichita State University’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) recently received Nadcap accreditation after successfully passing a Nadcap audit in materials testing. This is an expansion of NIAR’s scope of Nadcap certification to include both composites and metals.
This achievement is important for NIAR as it demonstrates the institute’s ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements and industry specifications and delivering the highest standards of materials testing.
The aim of the Nadcap program is to assess process capability for compliance to industry standards and customer requirements.
“Compliance via Nadcap accreditation is a milestone in demonstrating manufacturing excellence,” said Joe Pinto, executive vice president and chief operating officer at the Performance Review Institute. “By obtaining Nadcap in materials testing, NIAR has proved to the industry that it is committed to quality and aerospace safety.”
