SMT has acquired various industry certifications throughout the years - yet another step to ensure customer quality and satisfaction. 

SMT Corp. has twenty-one inspectors who demonstrate inspection knowledge, experience and the ability to successfully locate standards, references and specification information as needed to fulfill inspection activities of electronic components in the independent distribution market.


The AS 9120 Standard is the requirements for a Quality Management System based on AS 9100 which adds 100+ additional requirements that are specific to distributors who carry aircraft components like, fasteners, electronics, gaskets, etc. It helps ensure that they handle the materials properly and track the part from OEM to customer. AS9120 was developed for pass-through distributors of aerospace items and addresses chain of custody, traceability, control and availability of records.

Companies that procure parts, materials and assemblies and sells these products to a customer in the aviation, space and defense industries. This includes organizations that procure products and split them into smaller quantities.

ISO 9001:2015 PDF
ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

SMT has been qualified by ANAB (ANSI National Accreditation Board) to AS6171A for test methods AS6171/1 Suspect/Counterfeit Evaluation Method, AS6171/2A External Visual/RTS/SEM Inspection, AS6171/3 X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Test Method, AS6171/4 Delid/Decapsulation Physical Analysis Test Methods, AS6171/5 Radiological Test Methods and AS6171/7 Electrical Test Methods. AS6171A standardizes inspection and test procedures, workmanship criteria, minimum training and certification requirements across the supply chain to detect Suspect/Counterfeit Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical (EEE) parts.

AS6081 was created in response to a significant and increasing volume of fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts entering the aerospace supply chain, posing significant performance, reliability, and safety risks. It provides uniform requirements, practices and methods to mitigate the risks of purchasing and supplying fraudulent/counterfeit electronic parts.

ISO 14001:2015 PDF
ISO 14001:2015 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence. It does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria.

R2:2013 PDF
The Responsible Recycling R2 Standard sets forth requirements relating to environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling.  R2 also requires e-recyclers to assure that more toxic material streams are managed safely and responsibly by downstream vendors-all the way to final disposition. It also prohibits e-recyclers and their downstream vendors from exporting these more toxic materials to countries that have enacted laws making their import illegal.

ITAR Registered PDF
International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List. These regulations implement the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act, and are described in Title 22 (Foreign Relations), Chapter I (Department of State), Subchapter M of the Code of Federal Regulations.

The Department of State interprets and enforces ITAR. Its goal is to advance national strategic objectives and U.S. foreign policy via the trade controls.

For practical purposes, ITAR regulations dictate that information and material pertaining to defense and military related technologies may only be shared with US Persons unless approval from the Department of State is received or a special exemption is used. United States companies can face heavy fines if the Department of State discovers they have, without approval or the use of an exemption, exposed non-US-Persons to ITAR-protected products or information such as designs, test data, processes, software code, etc.
