Qualification list of businesses approved to Off-Shore Aerospace work.

#1
I am trying to obtain a list of businesses in the UK, who have upgraded their AS9100 certification, to be able to off-shore work. This falls under Project Management, and i believe should be public information. There is a sub-section within AS9100 that qualifies a business to hand over Aerospace design work, outside of their country of origin. Does anyone know how to A-Obtain a list a businesses certified to AS9100, and B-which of those are approved to Off-Shore contracts.
Thank you.

Hi, Richard - welcome to the cove.
There is not a subsection of AS9100 that has anything to do with sending contracts "off-shore". In the US, anything like that would be regulatory and covered in DFARs or ITAR/EAR (our federal regulations).
The database for all AS9100 registered companies world-wide is the OASIS (On-line Aerospace Supplier Information System) at IAQG OASIS - Login.

Hi Cari, thank you for your reply.
However i am not convinced what you say is totally correct. Firstly, in regards to ITAR/EAR, they work in terms of shipping a completed product. My question revolves around Design & manufacture of a product, and obtaining engineers outside the approved suppliers country with existing AS9100 approval.
Let me provide the examples. Rolls-Royce in the UK, give big contracts to businesses like Quest-Global, and little ones to Altran. These contractors have engineers abroad, in other countries, as they are an Indian investor. Rolls-Royce cannot export Design classified material abroad to another country, without Off-Shore permission from AS9100 Auditors and the CAA. Obviously because those offices in India, need to be secured. Now what has happened, is although Quest-Global UK have AS9100 approval, and so do their offices in India, they still need further permission from the CAA, for Design material to be exported to those offices abroad. That extra approval, where is it, and who has it, that is what i want to know. This should be public information, and easily obtained.

I know of no such list of ITAR/EAR "approved" foreign companies. In any case such as list would not be actively managed enough to ensure compliance.

Compliance requires each company to have its own controls over information sharing.

You may need specific legal advice to ensure your file company's sharing protocols are legally compliant, for example:

Is My File Sharing ITAR Compliant?

These controls should be part of your company's management system so they are monitored, reviewed and continually improved for ongoing compliance. That way these controls would be audited too.

Naturally such controls would be part of the management system developed for AS9100 "approval".

Yes, it is not difficult to secure your business communication.
Yes, to maintain your ITAR compliance, a business needs to ensure that all nationalities are listed on their shipping certificate, ensuring no embargoed countries are listed.
However, a business still needs extra certification within your Quality Management System (QMS), to obtain additional certification, to be approved by the CAA to Off-Shore design and manufacturing material, for whatever purpose.
This certification, enabling businesses to Off-Shore work, must be listed somewhere, and should be named publically.
