OASIS Database provides subjective evidence of ESCS Aerospace Certification

(OASIS) On-line Aerospace Supplier Information System OASIS, what is it? OASIS is the web-based International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) database containing information on all AS9100 for manufacturers, AS9110 for repair and overhaul shops and AS9120 Stockist distributors all of whom are registered companies. The database displays the results of all AS9100, AS9110 or AS9120 aerospace assessments performed (including its latest score), as well as general company information.
OASIS is the resource companies should use to determine that a supplier has an Aerospace certification that demonstrates subjective evidence of a quality management system that goes beyond the ISO 9001 standard utilized by commercial companies.
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) administers the OASIS database for the aerospace scheme. Inputs for updating the OASIS database are provided by your aerospace auditors to SAE after completion of an AS9100, AS9110 or AS9120 assessment visit.
All AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 registered clients should currently have access to the OASIS database. Each aerospace registered client should verify all information relating their company is correct, specifically the latest assessment score for their most recent aerospace audit.
If your supplier states that they are certified and they are not listed further investigations should be made to substantiate their claims. REGISTRATION TO OASIS IS FREE
To register for access to the OASIS database for viewing any company’s information, go to: Choose a user name and password and you’re done. Select a country, choose a standard and everyone who is certified is listed for your review.
Sampling is not allowed for AS9100 or AS9110, therefore each site must be audited in full prior to granting initial certification and each site must be audited in full at least once in the three year certification cycle at surveillance or re-assessment audits. Electronic Supply Chain Solutions maintains a website whereby clicking on their quality tab will not only provide you valuable industry information but also a hot link to OASIS Make sure you bookmark this valuable tool. As we all know poor quality is no day at the beach. ESCS is a AS9120 certified company and shall competed it's 5 th Aerospace audit in June 2008 with a 100% score!!!!! Companies investigating the process of being aerospace AS9120 should contact companies such as ESCS as they were the 3rd company in the USA to acheve this certifcation and are mature in their Quality Management System.

ESCS Warns - - - - Beware of Phishing

It's not like trying to combat counterfeits but it is about taking steps to secure your intellectual property. By definition - Vishing (voice or VoIP phishing) is an electronic fraud tactic in which individuals are tricked into revealing critical financial or personal information to unauthorized entities. Vishing works like phishing but does not always occur over the Internet and is carried out using voice technology. A vishing attack can be conducted by voice email, VoIP (voice over IP), or landline or cellular telephone.
The potential victim receives a message, often generated by speech synthesis, indicating that suspicious activity has taken place in a credit card account, bank account, mortgage account or other financial service in their name. The victim is told to call a specific telephone number and provide information to "verify identity" or to "ensure that fraud does not occur." If the attack is carried out by telephone, caller ID spoofing can cause the victim's set to indicate a legitimate source, such as a bank or a government agency.
Vishing is difficult for authorities to trace, particularly when conducted using VoIP. Furthermore, like many legitimate customer services, vishing scams are often outsourced to other countries, which may render sovereign law enforcement powerless.
Consumers can protect themselves by suspecting any unsolicited message that suggests they are targets of illegal activity, no matter what the medium or apparent source. Rather than calling a number given in any unsolicited message, a consumer should directly call the institution named, using a number that is known to be valid, to verify all recent activity and to ensure that the account information has not been tampered with. As my mom always says " company are like fish! They start to stink after the second day" Be careful of the company you keep and always protect your information!
