Single & Global Certification Renewed at Air France Industries

PARIS, AMSTELVEEN – Following the latest exacting, in-depth audit, Single & Global Certification has been successfully renewed at Air France Industries (AFI). Bureau Veritas has simultaneously carried out a first evaluation of the Sustainable Development System.

In June 2008, AFI had been awarded an extended label of the Single & Global Certification by Bureau Veritas.

"The positive outcome of the audit demonstrates the pertinence of our continuous improvement program which reinforce the competitive differentiation for the industrial trade of Air France, the Single & Global Certification," says Pierre Girault, AFI Head of Quality, Safety, Environment and Sustainable Development.

Air France Industries achieved a world first with the award of Single & Global Certification. It was qualified as Single because it applied to Air France's entire maintenance footprint, including the North (CDG and Le Bourget), South (Orly and Villeneuve-le-Roi) and Toulouse-Blagnac sites. It was Global because it covered seven standards: ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environment), ISO 15489 (documentation), ISO 22000 (food hygiene), EN 9100 (aircraft maintenance, design), EN 9110 (aircraft maintenance, repairs), EN 9120 (aircraft maintenance, storage), and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health & safety).
