EASA Accreditation Program Audit Checklist with Explanations
For audits ON or AFTER December 1, 2021
Review these documents and make yourself familiar with them. They form the foundation of the EASA Accreditation Program.
When your facility is in compliance with the program requirements proceed to Step 2. A useful method for making this determination is to perform a self-audit from the perspective of a third-party auditor, i.e., perform a beta-audit using the Accreditation Program Audit Checklist.
Fill out and submit the online EASA Accreditation Program application form along with your non-refundable application fee payment ($300 for EASA members, $1500 for non-members; this fee covers 3 years in the program). A copy of the receipt as well as all materials related to your Accreditation can be viewed/downloaded from your company's profile page.
Applications will not be processed until payment is received.
Applicaton fees are non-refundable.
Select an EASA-sanctioned auditor. Auditor's fees are in addition to EASA's non-refundable application fee and may vary from auditor to auditor. EASA encourages participating service centers to interview the auditors to find the best match.
After you have selected an auditor, pay any fees charged by the auditor as well as provide them with a copy of the receipt for payment of the EASA Accreditation Program enrollment fee.
Prepare for and schedule your initial third-party (on-site) audit. (Note: third-party audits are required every three years. During years between third-party audits, accredited service centers are required to conduct internal self audits that will be reviewed by an EASA-sanctioned auditor.)
Conduct your initial third-party (on-site) audit. If disapproved, the auditor will describe the unacceptable condition(s) and list corrective action(s) that must be taken; completion of corrective actions often can be approved remotely by email, photos, etc. (There is no time limit for completing the initial third-party audit.)
After successfully completing your initial third-party (on-site) audit, the auditor will sign and date the audit checklist. This date will become your service center's ANNIVERSARY DATE in the EASA Accreditation Program.
The auditor will also forward to EASA a copy of the final signed audit checklist which will become part of your service center's permanent record. At this time, EASA will issue to the service center:
- A customized EASA Accreditation Logo for use on company websites and in marketing materials.
- A company listing as an EASA Accredited repair firm on EASA's website.
- Placement of the EASA Accreditation Logo next to its member records in "Find A Member" lookups on EASA's website.
- 100 serialized Accreditation Repair Labels for use on accredited repair jobs. (Additional labels are available for purchase in packages of 100.)
- A customized press release that announces the firm's accreditation and explains the importance of EASA Accreditation for maintaining or improving the efficiency and reliability of repaired motors.
- A customized Accreditation Certificate (printed and PDF).
- A customized, tri-fold marketing brochure that you may print and distribute to your customers.
- Announcement of accreditation in EASA's newsletter, Currents.
- Secure storage of the completed audit (PDF) in the firm's password-protected company record at EASA's website.
