Standards: Expertise for all project-specific requirements

Certifications, standards & Co

Thourough application of project-specific standards and the referring processes is one of the key expertises at Kappa. Here is a short overview of the most important standards and certifications in our portfolio.

Design Assurance in Accordance with Strictest Requirements

 

Certifications

Kappa is audited by independent certification bodies on a regular basis and is currently certified to:

ISO 9001 (Industry standard)
EN 9100 (Aerospace industry)

 

IPC-A-610

IPC-A-610, Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies, is the internationally recognized certification program for the highest reliability of printed wiring assemblies. Many of our customers’ end product acceptance criteria are aligned with IPC-A-610.

 

Aviation Standard EN 9100

Kappa was first certified to EN 9100 in 2012. Hardly any industry has more stringent safety criteria than the aviation industry, and hardly any industry sets higher quality requirements for its suppliers.
