CTRM and CTL Ireland, announced their joint venture company, Composites Testing Laboratory Asia(CTLA)to achieve NADCAP certification for AC7122 Non Metallic Materials Testing laboratory.

   CTLA became the first laboratory in Asia certified for Nadcap AC7122 Non Metallic Materials Testing since 11 January. Its Nadcap-accredited non metallic testing includes both mechanical and chemical testing.


    “CTLA has taken the challenge to be audited for AC7122 after we were accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 last year and became the first ever in Asia to be approved and accredited,” Idi Yusfarizal, Head of Quality, CTLA, said.


   “We earned Nadcap accreditation by demonstrating our ongoing commitment to quality through satisfying our customer requirements and industry specifications,” Mohd Taufik, Head of Operation and Technical Division, CTLA, said. “This achievement represents hard work and attention to detail by the entire team.”


   “Achieving Nadcap accreditation is not easy,” said Nor Azham, Chief Executive Officer of CTLA. “It is one of the ways in which the aerospace industry identifies those who excel at manufacturing quality product through superior special processes.”


   Nadcap, formerly NADCAP, the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program, is a global cooperative standards-setting program for aerospace engineering, defense and and related industries. The Nadcap program, as a part of Performance Review Institute, was created in 1990 by the Society of Automotive Engineers and is headquartered in Warrendale, Penn.


   “Independent laboratory such as CTLA, work hard to obtain this status and they should be justifiably proud of it,” Nor Azham said. “We are proud to support continual improvement in the aerospace industry and we look forward to continuing to assist specifically the Asian industry.”


Nadcap's membership of prime contractors meets to coordinate industry-wide standards for special processes and products. Through the Performance Review Institute, Nadcap provides independent certification of manufacturing processes for the industry.
