Elmatica's Jan Pedersen successfully completed the Part 21 Subpart G training, regarding auditing of printed circuit board suppliers for SAAB Avionics Systems earlier this year, allowing Elmatica to conduct audits of SAAB Avionics sub-suppliers.
“We are honored to be given the responsibility from SAAB Avionics to audit their PCB subcontractors subject to EASA, the Part 21 Subpart G audit, says Elmatica's Senior Technical Advisor Jan Pedersen.
Pedersen completed with success the EASA Part 21 Subpart G - Production Organisation Approval (POA) Essentials training last year, at Baines Simmons Aviation Safety Academy in the UK. The first audit will be conducted together with a member of the Quality Management of SAAB Avionics, as a mentor.
“We have been cooperating with SAAB Avionics for many years, the new responsibility represents a broadening of our relations. Elmatica has been auditing manufacturers since the 80's and we have developed a unique methodology for how to audit, a methodology which will be even more precise and efficient after this training," says Pedersen.

A popular definition of reliability is “The quality of being trustworthy or of performing consistently well.” Upfront engineering is of utmost importance in developing a design that will endure its intended life cycle. On the other hand, the manufacturing of that design is just as critical.

During this year’s IPC Fall Committee Meetings, held in conjunction with SMTAI in Chicago, I met with my friend Randy Cherry, director of IPC Validation Services. Since the inception of Validation Services three years ago, I’ve conducted video interviews with Randy at IPC APEX EXPO, and I've been tracking the growth and progress of this program. I decided that this would be a great opportunity to do a mid-year check-up on IPC’s Validation Service programs.
