AACE has considerable experience and capability delivering technical compliance auditing and in the development of regulatory and standards compliant management systems across a number of different industry areas.  AACE employ highly trained and experienced Lead Auditors who have considerable management and technical experience, not only to deliver objective audits, but also to recommend practical effective solutions to address any audit findings or gaps in management systems.

AACE has undertaken audits in the form of “health checks” to assess compliance against the Military Aviation Authority Regulatory Publications (MRP) and have undertaken compliance audits for many clients against ISO9001:2015, ISO14001:2015, ISO45001:2018, AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 (including stage 1 and 2 audits).  In addition, AACE can guide an Organisation on how best to adopt ISO 31000 (Risk Management) and ISO 27001 (Certification) principles into their management systems.



Following assessment audits, AACE has provided management consultancy and training to assist implementation of continuous improvement to address deficiencies. These have included:

Analysis, concept, design and implementation of bespoke management systems covering all the major aspects of design and continuing airworthiness support within a regulated environment.

Assisted clients to achieve accreditation to MRP145 maintenance standards and in some contracts, AACE have developed management systems to support compliance and change programmes to ensure that the new processes and practices become effective.
