This accreditation follows an audit conducted in early March 2018 by the Performance Review Institute (PRI), which focused on both the overall quality system of the laboratory and the practice of static and dynamic mechanical tests.

NADCAP is a program that aims to gather the requirements of aeronautics stakeholders in unique audits, which are applicable in many special processes. The objectives are twofold: to improve the quality of the products and processes while cutting costs.

The investment of Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS in this program demonstrates the company’s level of commitment to be as close as possible to the demands of the aircraft manufacturers. This certification represents an important step within an overall continuous improvement of quality.
