Outsourced aerospace work quality assurance?

#1
Hello everyone,

Our company has a kind of partner which is produce finished products for us with our design. The products will be labelled with our brand. Like i mentioned in the title it is kind of outlocated work.

My question is, am i responsible to control my partner suppliers with in scope of EASA POA?

By the way this is my first post :)

Thank you.

Hi, Cari Spears thank you.

They are the supplier we have contracted. PO has our company name.

But finished product will be ready to sell while its in our supplier with our brand.

So you are outsourcing the production and having the product drop shipped. There are serious risks with both decisions. Because this is a highly regulated sector (Aerospace), I would strongly suggest you contact the appropriate people at EASA themselves.

If your organization is an Approved Production Organization with EASA, you should have the proper contacts with them.

Quite frankly, this issue is too serious for "opinions" other than the regulator's, as you could be risking your organization's approval status.

Good luck.

With this other information provided by you for Cari's question, in my opinion you will still need to control the Supplier that you have contracted with to make the product according to your company's design. You will need to make sure it meets the requirements for design and intended use.

Just my opinion :)

This seems to me to be a fairly simple answer to this one.
The POA is responsible for compliance.
Parts or subassemblies which are manufactured elsewhere must be compliant, and it is the POAs responsibility to
a) Order the parts from a capable supplier/manufacturer
b) inspect/test or otherwise ensure that parts/assemblies are compliant.

There are many examples where the POA does little except inspect/test/ certify and then label up the parts it sells on under its POA.

But heaven help you if you certify garbage. your approvals depend on you doing this with the relevant level of oversight for the product - and that IS where you will need clarity from your certification body.
