SMETA Audit & Certification

What is SMETA Audit & Certification?

SMETA Audit & is a widely adopted and standardized Quality Management System (QMS) for the Aerospace industry. The aerospace community has specific requirements that need to be taken into account, and the QMS needs to incorporate these critical requirements. The SMETA Audit & Certification was introduced in 1997 by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) based on the internationally recognized standard ISO 9001 in order to encourage International quality, safety, and technology standards in air transport. The certification can be applied to all areas in aviation like design and manufacture of equipment, airport and airline operations, aircraft accessory supply, spares supply, and maintenance.

SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) is the most widely used social audit in the world. SMETA is Sedex’s social auditing methodology which enables businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand working conditions in their supply chain. SMETA assesses a site based on its organization’s standards of labor, health and safety, environment, and business ethics. It is also designed for suppliers to share one audit with multiple customers, meeting all customer requirements and reducing duplication and audit fatigue.
