The IECQ CAS certification scheme is based on the requirements of the recently released SAE AS 6081, for Distributors, AS 5553 for OEMs and AS 6174 for other than electronic components. The IECQ CAS Certification Assessment is conducted by nationally accredited and IECQ recognized certification body technically qualified Lead Assessors and Subject Mater Experts.
