Here are 10 certifications and qualifications MJS Designs maintains to always deliver on our promises to you.

Company Wide Certifications and Qualifications

As an organization, we adhere to the following standards to ensure top-notch customer service and satisfaction.

AS9100:2016 / AS9100D

This standard was introduced in January 2009 with the goal of dramatically increasing the On-Time and On-Quality Delivery standards in the Aerospace, Defense, and Space Industries.

Updated for 2016, the AS9100:2016/AS9100D standardizes the quality management system. It can be used at all levels of the supply chain by organizations around the world, to improve quality, cost, and delivery performance.


This ISO is often considered the ‘Father of Certifications’ for its broad, comprehensive requirements that seek to ensure that a firm meets its commitment to its customers and other stakeholders.

The 2008 standard was updated for 2015, and MJS Designs’ practices adhere to the new updated standard.

ITAR Registered

International Traffic in Arms Regulations

All manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, related technical data and defense services as defined on the United States Munitions List are required to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC).

While ITAR registration is required by any company working in defense services, ITAR alone does not assure quality. Quality is assured through the ISO certifications.

GIDEP (Government-Industry Data Exchange Program)

GIDEP is a cooperative activity between government and industry participants seeking to reduce or eliminate expenditures of resources by sharing technical information. Through the sharing of data between government and industry, GIDEP reports that over $2.1 billion in the prevention of unplanned expenditures has been reported.

ANSI / ESD S.20.20-2014

This standard addresses the protection of electrical or electronic devices, whether for the civilian or military purpose. In short, this is the standard used to control electro charges in manufacturing. This standard is applied not only to the actual manufacturing plant but to many of the products used within the manufacturing facility such as smocks and floor paint.
