AMS 2750 Directory

This Directory is a listing of companies and individuals that have the capacity to meet the requirements of AMS 2750

cogs Over the next 20 to 25 years, 35,000 new commercial aircraft will be delivered worldwide.

With the projected world-wide increases in manufacture of new aircraft there is increasing awareness and recognition for the need for globally standardised compliance requirements for all players including end-users, service providers and suppliers.

International airline manufacturers demand compliance with International Standards such as AMS 2750 and relevant airline Codes from suppliers and service providers before entering into contracts in areas such as manufacture of parts, maintenance, refits, and servicing and supply activities.

Australian companies are now able to become part of that maintenance manufacturing and supply chain.

The IICA has developed an Online Directory to assist all stakeholders that have completed the ‘Course in Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing’ which will assist them to meet international requirements.

What is the Directory for?

The Australian Directory is an easy platform to assist all sectors of the aerospace supply chain involved in pyrometric requirements for thermal processing to:-

  • Identify and access service providers and suppliers that have completed the Course that provides the knowledge and processes that will assist them to meet the relevant industry specific requirements for heat treatment processing Standards set by:
    • Aircraft and aeronautical product manufacturers;
    • National Aviation Authorities;
      and, more specifically;
    • Aerospace Material Specifications – comprising AMS 2750 or equivalent.
  • Provide a marketing and promotional vehicle for those wishing to promote their expertise to both local and overseas end users.

Is it enough to comply with Australian Standards?

No, companies wanting to successfully compete for global contracts need to comply with International Standards. At present, many Australian companies are not equipped with the knowledge and do not have processes in place to meet International Standards.

Is there relevant training available?

Yes, a new specialist short course has been developed in Australia to assist in meeting these requirements.

The course has been designed by local industry representatives and an internationally recognised trainer to meet the needs of Australian business and International Standards. CASA was involved in the development process and has given the course their support and endorsement.

The 'Course in Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing' is registered in Victoria, Australia and nationally accredited.

The Course is a post-trade qualification designed for tradespeople working in heat treatment processing, their managers and quality assurance managers.

The 'Course in Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing' is available in Australia at RMIT University. Click here for further information and application to enrol.

The Course provides opportunity for Australia’s aerospace industry to implement the relevant International Standards and to assist them in becoming eligible for engagement with global aerospace maintenance and supply chains.

What legitimacy does the new ‘Course in Pyrometric Requirement for Thermal Processing’ have?

The Course has full CASA endorsement:

"CASA was involved in the development and approval of the ‘Course in Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing’.

Pyrometric requirements for heat treatment and thermal processing may be specified within the instructions for continued airworthiness for the aircraft and aeronautical products and their construction materials.

CASA endorses the use of this course by the various personnel employed in the field of thermal processing of aircraft and aeronautical products and their associated materials.

The course will assist all those involved, in meeting the relevant industry-specific requirements for heat treatment processing Standards set by: aircraft and aeronautical product manufacturers; National Aviation Authorities; and more specifically the Aerospace Material Specifications – AMS 2750."

Is this related to Nadcap?

Yes, the IICA have collaborated with internationally recognized training providers in the development of the new ‘Course in Pyrometric Requirements in Thermal Processing’. Nadcap* via its training provider PRI, has been supportive of the IICA’s initiative in developing the new Course in Australia.

Companies that are registered on the Directory may wish to consider pursuing Nadcap accreditation, subject to meeting Nadcap’s accreditation criteria. The IICA believes that, at the time of publication, the RMIT Course still qualifies.

Likewise Nadcap may find it a convenient way of finding companies that have successfully completed the AMS 2750 Course.

What does the Online Directory offer?

The Online Directory was developed specifically to allow graduates of the Course to promote and market their expertise and capacity to assist in meeting the relevant Standards and airline Codes.

Directory listed companies and individuals send out signals that Australian companies are ready for potential business opportunities with global and domestic aerospace manufacturers.

  • This Directory potentially offers a globally unique platform for companies and individuals that have completed the Course that assists them to become eligible for compliance with AMS 2750, to advertise and promote their ability to be considered for overseas aerospace businesses.
  • The Directory provides a potential marketing advantage for companies and individuals to generate new business opportunities within Australia, and also to demonstrate to existing business colleagues that they are being proactive and responsive to the inevitable moves towards globally standardised requirements.
  • As global demand for AMS 2750 compliance grows, end users that routinely outsource their supply and service activities to contractors across most aerospace maintenance, refit etc activities, will now be able to use this independent Directory to source each Australian company or individual for having completed the Course that leads to AMS 2750 Compliance.
  • Companies that complete the IICA course may become eligible to apply for full *Nadcap accreditation. Prior to the introduction of the new ‘Course in Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing’ this pathway was not easily available in Australia.
