SAAB Avionics approves Elmatica auditor for PCB subcontractors
1 February 2020
Expanding on its international relationship with SAAB Avionics, printed circuit board supplier Elmatica’s Jan Pedersen successfully completed the Part 21, Subpart G training, regarding auditing of printed circuit boards suppliers for SAAB Avionics Systems. This allows Elmatica to conduct audits of SAAB Avionics sub-suppliers.
“We are honoured to be given the responsibility from SAAB Avionics to audit their PCB subcontractors subject to EASA, the Part 21 Subpart G audit," said Pedersen, senior technical advisor at Elmatica.
Pedersen successfully completed the EASA Part 21 Subpart G – Production Organisation Approval (POA) Essentials – training last year, at Baines Simmons Aviation Safety Academy in the UK. The first audit will be conducted together with a member of the quality management of SAAB Avionics, as a mentor.
“We have been cooperating with SAAB Avionics for many years; the new responsibility represents a broadening of our relations. Elmatica has been auditing manufacturers since the 1980s and we have developed a unique methodology for how to audit, a methodology which with these new learnings will be even more precise and efficient," said Pedersen.
