NADCAP approval for Conventional Machining and Chemical processes - need assistance

#1
In my company we currently have ISO 9001 Certificate and we would like to get NADCAP approval for Conventional Machining, Hydraulic Pipes, Alodine, Copper Platting and Passivation. I am really new at this and I don't know where to start from as this was all left to me. Can anyone guide me through this? Where I can find the documents with the requirements for each process and is AC7004 certification mandatory? Thank you in advance!

I'm not an expert on NADCAP, but from what I know, you will be audited to AC7004 which has more requirements for documentation than ISO9001. You should start looking here Nadcap

They call the checklists "Audit Criteria" now - and yes, they are the requirements and checklists all in one.

Nadcap recognizes AS9100 and AS9110 registrations and ISO/IEC17025 accreditation; if the company doesn't have a recognized QMS approval, then they will need to be approved to Nadcap's AC7004 or AC7006 or AC7101 in addition to the specific audit criteria for the processes they want approved.
