ESCS believes that aerospace and military manufacturers should require their independent distributors
to be AS9120 certified as the foundation of a quality management system that reduces the risk

open disclosure of AS9120 audit results.
ESCS is a member of the US Chamber of Commerce's Coalition Against Counterfeiting and Piracy (CACP),
the Government & Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) and the ERAI. ESCS supports government
and industry efforts to develop best practices in supply chain sourcing, and
has been recognized as a leading advocate of quality standards to combat counterfeits.
