Certification Definitions:

ANSI-ASQ (ANAB)ANAB CERT ANAB assesses and accredits certification bodies that demonstrate competence to audit and certify organizations conforming to management systems standards.
ANSI/ESD S20.20 2007ESD CTrends' Certification Symbol This standard covers the requirements necessary to design, establish, implement and maintain an Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Control Program for activities that manufacture, process, assemble, install, package, label, service, test, inspect or otherwise handle electrical or electronic parts, assemblies and equipment susceptible to damage by electrostatic discharges greater than or equal to 100 volts Human Body Model (HBM).
This document is intended for use in aviation, space, defense, and other high performance/reliability electronic equipment applications. This standard is recommended for use by all contracting organizations that procure electronic parts, whether such parts are procured directly or integrated into electronic assemblies or equipment. The requirements of this standard are generic and intended to be applied/flowed down to all organizations that procure electronic parts, regardless of type, size, and product provided.
AS6081 This proposed project is to develop a standard similar to AS5553, but will prescribe counterfeit parts avoidance requirements directly applicable to distributors. The intent of the document is to describe a program to establish and maintain certified distributors of electronic components whose regular use of anti-counterfeit process controls and requirements (in their purchasing and supplying operations) is designed to ensure delivery of authentic products that meet original component manufacturer specifications. It is intended that independent verification of conformance to this standard will be by third-party certification bodies (CBs). Accreditation of the CB will be through a recognized and respected accreditation body to ensure the impartiality and competence of the CB. The G-19 committee's choice to establish third-party CBs to audit and certify the distributor will hopefully foster confidence and acceptance of the CB's certifications by end users in the public and private sectors.
AS6171 Shares the same intent as AS5553 but is applicable to the testing/inspection community.

Certified Small Business (CT) CAGE Code 3WQE6 CERT The Commercial And Government Entity (CAGE) Code is a five-character ID number used extensively within the federal government. The CAGE code  is used to support a variety of mechanized systems throughout the government and provides a standardized method of identifying a given facility at a specific location.  The code may be used for a facility clearance, or a pre-award survey. You do not need to have a CAGE code prior to registration as one will be automatically assigned to you as a part of your entity's registration in SAM. CAGE codes are assigned by DoD's Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

ISO 9001:2008/AS9120A
CTrends' Certification Symbol This standard includes ISO 9001:2000 quality management system requirements and specifies additional requirements for a quality management system for the aerospace industry applicable to stockist distributors. This standard is for the use by organizations that procure parts, materials and assemblies and sells these products to a customer in the aerospace industry. This includes organizations that procure products and split them into smaller quantities. This standard is not intended for organizations that rework or repair products.
AC 00-56A

CTrends' Certification Symbol This Standard is specifically designed for private distributors of aeronautical products. The Standard establishes criteria for required procedures and forms necessary for eligibility and participation under this Standard. This Standard describes all necessary elements for accreditation as prescribed by AC 00-56A and other FAA publications. The intent of this Standard is to assure that private Aeronautical Parts Distributors write and comply with reliable and safe methods such as: receiving inspections, storing, handling, packaging and verifying the traceability of aeronautical products. Every effort has been expended in the preparation and development of this Standard to require the most up-to-date methods, procedures and documentation necessary to ensure a high quality product for sale to the end user, both domestic and foreign.
(International Traffic in Arms Regulations)
CERT The U.S. Government requires all manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, defense services or related technical data to be ITAR compliant. For a company involved in the manufacture, sale or distribution of goods or services covered under the United States Munitions List (USML), or a component supplier to goods covered under the USML, the stipulation or requirement of being "ITAR certified (compliant)" means that the company must be registered with the State Department's DDTC, if required as spelled out on DDTC's web site and the company must understand and abide by the ITAR as it applies to their USML linked goods or services. The company themselves is certifying that they operate in accordance with the ITAR when they accept being a supplier for the USML prime exporter. In other simpler words, to be ITAR COMPLIANT, a company needs to register with DDTC and know what is required of them to be in compliance with the ITAR, and self certify that they possess this knowledge.

QSLD Program
(Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors)
CTrends' Certification Symbol The purpose of the QSLD Program is to establish and maintain a list of pre-qualified sources for certain electronic components that are purchased and managed by DLA Land and Maritime. QSLD products are provided by suppliers that combine accepted commercial practices, quality assurance procedures that are consistent with industry and international quality standards, and tailored when necessary to product-unique requirements that can take the place of provisions traditionally stated in DLA Land and Maritime solicitations. This program is applicable to selected Federal Stock Class (FSCs) 5961 and 5962 items where a streamlined acquisition process is desired to improve the quality and services provided to our customer; the United States soldier, sailor, airman and marine. The publication below has been developed to outline and discuss the elements needed to successfully qualify for listing on the Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors (QSLD).
QTSL Program
(Qualified Testing Suppliers List)
CTrends' Certification Symbol The purpose of the QTSL Program is to mitigate the risk of nonconforming or counterfeit semiconductors and microcircuits entering the DLA Land and Maritime supply chain by testing and other quality assurance demonstrations prior to award. Under the QTSL Program, DLA Land and Maritime establishes and maintains a list of pre-qualified sources for the supply of obsolete semiconductors and microcircuits in FSCs 5961 and 5962, respectively. QTSL products are provided by suppliers that combine accepted counterfeit mitigation practices and quality assurance procedures that are consistent with industry and international quality standards. Suppliers in the QTSL Program will be relied upon to supply these electronic components when there are no offers with traceability to an approved manufacturer (i.e., when there are no offers in compliance with the Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors (QSLD) Program).
