North Wales, PA, October 28, 2016 – DEKRA Certification, Inc. has achieved AS 9120 “Quality Management Systems – Aerospace Requirements for Stockist Distributors” accreditation from ANAB.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer accredited certification to the AS 9120 standard.

AS 9120 is a standard offered by fewer than 60 certification bodies worldwide.
