As the Australian Prime Minister and Treasurer progressively announce the details of the plans to help Australia recover in a post COVID-19 world, two key themes are emerging: resilience and security.

Last Thursday, the Balaklava Racing Club launched this year’s TQCSI Balaklava Cup at Quality House in Adelaide. We had a very successful day for all the local sponsors involved, some of whom have supported the Cup for many years, including Coopers, Taylors, Agfert, AGI, BMD, Haulmark, TAB and Atlas. TQCSI is very fortunate to join the team as the major sponsor this year.

There are around 100 Australian companies certified against Aviation, Space and Defence standards who were reliant on overseas certification bodies for audits as there were no Australian certification bodies accredited. TQCSI talked to the CDIC who advised this was an area Defence were looking to develop sovereign capability.

TQCSI has just granted AS 9100 certification to Amaero International, specialists in metal additive manufacturing (commonly known as 3D printing) for the aviation, defence and tooling sectors.

Amaero supplies high-end industrial components to the world’s leading manufacturers of aerospace and defence products in both an R&D and manufacturing capability, and has a demonstrated ability to deliver aviation and military grade 3D printed alloy components for critical applications.

TQCSI Program Director, Sean Moules, commented “3D printing is a rapidly evolving, dynamic industry with huge potential to cost-effectively create high performance components. As an engineer, perhaps what is most exciting is the ability to design and create components that could not be manufactured in the same way using conventional techniques. It’s very gratifying to provide certification to a high-profile company with enormous potential to improve the capabilities of the Australian Defence supply chain such as Amaero”.

The Defence-grade 3D printing sector is well placed to provide other countries with the capability to manufacture their own critical components. To have an Australian company like Amaero certified to AS 9100 will positively impact Australian aviation, space and defence industry capability in multiple ways, either supporting local industries or contributing to global defence primes.

Amaero is co-located with MCAM in Melbourne, having additional facilities in El Segundo, California, and its recently launched operations in Adelaide, South Australia. Further information can be found via their website http://www.amaero.com.au/.

TQCSI is proud to announce that we have been selected to design and establish the Gateway document suite for Infrastructure SA.

Gateway Reviews are independent project delivery assurance reviews conducted at key points in the delivery lifecycle of major projects. The methodology was first deployed in the UK to help improve the delivery outcomes of major publicly funded projects and has been in use for about two decades. It is used extensively in the UK, New Zealand and other Australian States.

2020 05 Verseng certificate 640px














TQCSI is proud to announce that SA based engineering company, Verseng Group Pty Ltd, is the first Company to be certified by an Australian based certification body to the aviation, space & defence (ASD) standard, AS 9100D.


Verseng is TQCSI’s first client to achieve ISO 9001 & AS 9100 certification under COVID-19 restrictions. Through teleconferencing on 20th April, TQCSI (Australia)’s General Manager, Stuart Batchelor, issued Verseng’s certificate.  The certificate was then couriered to Verseng and accepted by Verseng’s Managing Director, Tim Lillie.

 2020 04 ANAB certificate 2 lori1 640px

TQCSI is very pleased to now be officially recognised as the only Australian aerospace accredited, certification body. Accreditation to AS 9100 & AS 9120 has been awarded by ANAB (ANSI National Accreditation Board), the largest multi-disciplinary accreditation body in North America and the world’s biggest in aerospace accreditation.

This is great news for the aviation, space and defence (ASD) industries throughout Australasia, who can now rely on a local provider for certification.

To mark this achievement, we asked ANAB Vice President Management Systems, Lori Gillespie, to remotely present the certificate rather than battling the COVID-19 elements for a photo opportunity! With the help of ICT magic, Lori presented the Accreditation Certificate to TQCSI Accreditation Manager, Sean Bates, with Project Manager, Sean Moules, looking on.

Both, TQCSI and ANAB, have embraced ICT more earnestly in the last few months with ANAB conducting remote assessments of certification bodies and TQCSI conducting remote audits of clients. Auditing remotely has proven remarkably successful and, while it won’t replace physical audits, it will likely reduce the on-site auditing time for better performing organisations in the future. That is the TQCSI way: pro-actively embracing new technologies to offer the most professional auditing and certification service to our world-wide clientele. 

We celebrate this achievement and thank ANAB for their trust in a partnership that we expect to last for decades to come.
