These include being certified to all relevant standards including, ISO/IEC 17021-1 to ensure we are providing a consistent service with a high level of quality for all clients. Annually, ANAB and representatives of aerospace OEM’s review the activities of TRC’s offices and its auditors to be certain that TRC continues to meet these requirements. By following these guidelines and advisories, TRC ensures that the services you receive consistently meet the requirements of the IAF and that the certificate we provide you will be recognized globally.

TRC provides certification to organizations in a variety of different industries and sectors. TRC is required to submit sufficient evidence to ANAB to support our ability to provide effective audits within IAF Scope Categories. To be approved to complete audits in any given IAF code, TRC needs to be able to show high levels of expertise within the given industry. Auditor competency levels are measured through written examination as well as witness audits.

A well-developed and implemented system can benefit a business in many ways. At TRC, we believe that maintaining a quality management system (QMS) should be a value-added part of an organization’s business management process. With this in mind, TRC ensures that each assessment generates feedback that will assist in improving the QMS and the business processes. Our auditing process highlights your companies strengths as well as weaknesses, which allows you to continually improve your processes to stay competitive in your industry.

TRC works with your company to understand your business and unique practices to ensure you get the most out of the auditing process with minimized disruption.
