FAA AC 00-56 Accredited Companies


FAA Advisory Circular 00-56 establishes a civil aircraft parts accreditation system. This system involves voluntary industry oversight. The FAA strongly endorses participation in this system.  FAA AC 00-56 lists ASA-100 as an acceptable quality system standard.  Only ASA can accredit a company to ASA-100.  ISO 9001, AS9100, AS9120 and AS9110 are all acceptable standards as is TAC 2000.  ASA also has an ISO 9001, AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 accredited certification body referred to as ASACB.

The FAA released FAA AC 00-56B on May 27, 2015 with an effective date of August 27, 2015.  Any audit conducted after August 27, 2015 must be conducted to revision B.


For additional information about the Advisory Circular 00-56 and its effectiveness, please review the following:

  • FAA AC 00-56A
  • FAA AC 00-56B

    Distributors become officially accredited to FAA AC 00-56 when they appear on the Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program Database. The Aviation Suppliers Association manages the database for the FAA.
