Following successful certification, Co-Operative Industries Aerospace & Defense now has an onsite DMIR for our FAA/PMA products. Deborah Clark, CIA&D Quality Management System Representative, has received her Certificate of Designation from the FAA as a Designated Manufacturing Inspection Representative (DMIR).
Having Deborah as our onsite DMIR is a cost and time saver for both the company and the customer. Not having to schedule an outside FAA approved inspector speeds up the entire process. There is also the added bonus of an onsite representative being familiar with the product and operations.
DMIRs inspect parts to ensure that they conform to the approved engineering data. When the manufactured part conforms to its approved type design and is in a condition for safe operation, these designees issue the 8130-3 certificate. Per the FAA:
“A DMIR is an individual appointed in accordance with 14 CFR §183.31. A DMIR conducts conformity inspections during the manufacturing process. DMIRs also issue certificates such as airworthiness certificates for aircraft, export certificates for aircraft and parts, and special flight permits (in our case “article”) A DMIR must possess aeronautical knowledge and experience, be employed by a Production Approval Holder (PAH), or a PAH’s approved supplier, and meet the qualification requirements of Order 8000.95.”
CIA&D is an AS9100 registered company based in Fort Worth, Texas.
