Héroux-Devtek Spain obtains an extension of its EN9110 certification

The company has also expanded the scope of its PERAM 145 certification to equipment maintained outside of its approved facilities

The company Héroux-Devtex Spain, based in Aerópolis, recently received the certification of the extension of the scope of the EN9110 certification, a quality standard for aeronautical maintenance organizations.

This standard adds additional requirements to ISO 9001 aimed at increasing the quality, reliability and safety of aerospace maintenance processes.

The extension of the scope of the certification allows maintenance tasks to be carried out on civil and military aircraft, both online and on base, at customer facilities or at third-party facilities, as well as performing maintenance on the aircraft itself or on equipment of the different systems, within the capabilities of the company.

This new scope, which enables the firm to certify its own interventions directly at the client's facilities, opens the door to future work by not relying on third-party certification, and joins those already available in equipment maintenance. corresponding to military and civil aircraft (A400M, C295, CN235, SIKORSKY, A330 / 200, MRTT, etc.) for repairs carried out at its facilities, located in both Getafe and Seville.

For HD Spain, having all the certifications required by its clients and by the corresponding authorities is especially important, since it allows them to increase their skills as a repair center, as well as expand their business opportunities in the service area.

PERAM 145 extension

Equally relevant has been the expansion of the scope of the PERAM 145 certification, military airworthiness regulations for maintenance organizations. This new scope allows the company to issue PERAM form1 for equipment repaired by the company in customer or third-party facilities, in addition to being able to carry out these tasks at its facilities, a capacity that they already had for a few years.

The PERAM 145 certification for maintenance obtained by the company includes equipment corresponding to the C212, CN235, C295, A400M, F18 and Harrier. This step enables to certify the equipment maintained in the customer's facilities, for example, in the equipped and un-equipped engines and propeller repair of the A400M, always under the requirements and documentation of the manufacturers themselves.

Online aircraft maintenance certification under PERAM 145 is in process and the company hopes to shortly meet this new challenge.

The evolution of the maintenance market at a global level requires repair centers to adapt to new requirements and that equipment repairs be a further addition to the global process, where aircraft maintenance and services at the customer's facilities they are already required on a regular basis.

Having these new certifications increases the MRO capabilities and services of the company and allows it to be increasingly competitive, covering the complete post-sale needs of its clients.
