Firearms & Armoring Certification Program (ARM 9009:2013) Brings Quality Assurance To Suppliers

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

( NEW YORK, NY – For the Firearms and Armored products business, whether it be rifles, revolvers, pistols, armored vehicles or body armor, quality is essential to ensure the most accurate and reliable performance for gun owners and customers of armoring systems. All manufacturers, suppliers, subcontractors involved in manufacturing firearms or armored systems must be accredited to ARM-9009:2013 standards ( overseen by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) which is the world’s leading firearms and armoring accreditation & certification body, and the only designated quality management registration with this specific designation.


“While ISO 9001:2008 is based on requirements that are intended to be a ‘one size fits all’ set of standards for many different industries, ARM 9009:2013 system accreditation is based on highly specialized standards that have been universally accepted as a mandatory requirement for suppliers, subcontractors, manufacturers of all firearms and armoring type materials, hardware, adhesives, fasteners, metals, plastics, glass, composites, ceramics as well as related materials and processes used in conjunction for the manufacture of firearms, vehicles, aerospace and body armor,” said Henry Kroger, Chairman of the Board of Advisers for ABAC. He added, “ARM-9009 certification is solely administered by G-PMC Registrars, LLC and is accredited by the internationally recognized Industrial Leaders Group (ILG).”


According to G-PMC Registrars, which has been authorized among other qualified registrars to issue ARM 9009 certifications, all audits are system-specific and precisely comprehensive to the firearms and armoring industry. Kroger said ARM 9009 should not be in anyway confused with ISO, AS, TS designations or ANAB/ANSI requirements, since the ARM standard is a a system specific, standalone and accredited as such. “ARM-9009 is significantly superior to ISO 9001:2008 because of its focus on the firearms and armoring industry,” said Jim Davidson, Director of Accreditation for ILG. He concluded, “Due to the nature of the industry, importance of materials, manufacturing processes and security, ARM 9009 certification requires specialized audits against specific requirements, quality and delivery metrics, which is why the certification has been internationally accepted as the standard quality assurance program for firearms and armoring suppliers.”
