How to Prepare Your Aerospace Facility For an ISO Audit

Striv­ing to achieve ISO cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for your aero­space facil­i­ty may seem like a daunt­ing jour­ney on the out­set. You’ll need to take a thor­ough and com­pre­hen­sive look at your man­age­ment process­es and man­u­fac­tur­ing stan­dards every step of the way. It’s cru­cial to pre­pare your team and facil­i­ty through sev­er­al rounds of inter­nal audits, mak­ing need­ed changes before your final exter­nal audit. Keep in mind that the audi­tors, both inter­nal and exter­nal, are on your team, push­ing you to reach for high­er goals and over­all excellence.

The pro­fes­sion­als at Kaloutas can help you along the way as you pre­pare for your final audit and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Read on to learn more about how our team can sup­port you through the ISO process.

Prepar­ing For an ISO Audit

As you begin prepa­ra­tion for your ISO audit, keep in mind that ISO cer­ti­fi­ca­tion means your man­age­ment and man­u­fac­tur­ing stan­dards are ever evolv­ing. This isn’t a once-and-done endeav­or but a com­mit­ment to meet­ing the demands of ever-chang­ing indus­try excel­lence. Don’t make the mis­take of rush­ing through your prep work, but take a deep and hon­est look at the items on your list and catch non-con­for­mi­ty issues before exter­nal audi­tors arrive. Final­ly, be sure your work­spaces are clean and well main­tained, with sol­id floor­ing and well paint­ed sur­faces, free from cracks and chipping.

How Kaloutas Can Help You Get Ready

Here at Kaloutas, we are more than indus­tri­al paint­ing – our large and scal­able crew also spe­cial­izes in com­mer­cial clean­ing, com­mer­cial floor­ing, con­crete repair, and more. This means that as issues arise in your inter­nal audits, Kaloutas can assist you through flaw­less paint­ing and facil­i­ty main­te­nance so your exter­nal audit is stress-free.

Com­mer­cial Paint­ing Services

Failed and chipped coat­ings are not only bad for your ISO audit, they can cause deep­er dam­age to your sur­faces and struc­tures. A fresh coat of indus­tri­al paint can help you with your audit and pro­long the life of your facil­i­ty and equipment.

Com­mer­cial Clean­ing Contractors

If your facil­i­ty or equip­ment is due for a thor­ough clean­ing, our indus­tri­al clean­ing ser­vices can help you tick off the box­es on your ISO audit checklist.

Ongo­ing Facil­i­ty Main­te­nance Services

As you strive to meet the ongo­ing stan­dards of your ISO cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, keep in mind that our pas­sion is meet­ing the needs of our clients through ongo­ing main­te­nance ser­vices. Work­ing along­side our team means that you can achieve and exceed your ISO stan­dards now and in the years to come.
