Talon Test Laboratories - Certifications

FAA Repair Station

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) defines the rules governing all aviation activities in the United States; Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 145 deals with the rules a certified repair station must follow. Companies wishing to become certified repair stations need to follow the rules related to maintenance, preventative maintenance or alterations listed in FAR 145.

FAA repair station certification is for organizations that inspect, repair, replace or overhaul aviation articles including airframes, propellers and radios among others. FAA requires that air carriers and their contractors fully comply with federal regulations.

An organization wishing to become certified as an FAA repair station must complete a pre-application, a formal application, document compliance, demonstration and inspection. Once the organization meets the regulatory requirements, the FAA certification team will issue the repair station certificate and operations specifications with the appropriate ratings.

NADCAP Aerospace Quality & NDT Certification

The Nadcap program is administered by the Performance Review Institute (PRI). Nadcap was established in 1990 by SAE International. Nadcap's membership consists of ''Prime Contractors'' who coordinate with aerospace accredited suppliers to develop industry-wide audit criteria for special processes and products. Through PRI, Nadcap provides independent certification of manufacturing processes for the industry.

The Aerospace Quality Systems Task Group recognizes the industry developed Aerospace Quality Systems standard AS/EN/JISQ9100 and AS/EN9110. In, addition, Nadcap recognizes ISO 17025 for testing laboratories, including nondestructive testing laboratories. The ISO 17025 scope of accreditation must cover the Nadcap scope of accreditation and be from an approved NACLA / ILAC accreditation body.

The Non-Destructive Testing Task Group conducts audits based on the AC7114 series of check lists, which includes the following: Liquid Penetrant Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing, Ultrasonic Testing, Radiographic Testing, Eddy Current Testing and Digital Radiographic Testing (DDA)
