AMS Re-certifies With US/Canadian Joint Certifications Program

In 1985, the US and Canada signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that established the program. The countries have been partners in the mutual defense of North America ever since.

Both Canada and the US consult and cooperate on the development of common industrial security procedures and technology controls. The two governments have entered into numerous bilateral agreements that codify and support this relationship.

Under the agreements, a program was established “to certify contractors of each country for access, on an equally favorable basis, to unclassified technical data disclosing critical technology” controlled in the U.S. by Department of Defense Directive 5230.25 and, in Canada, by the Technical Data Control Regulations.

Aerospace Maintenance Solutions continually and currently meets all existing requirements of the certification programs.

A certification is required by U.S. or Canadian contractors that wish to obtain access to unclassified technical data disclosing militarily critical technology with military or space application that is under the control of, or in the possession of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) or the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND).

The United States and Canada have agreed that the certification process can be used to facilitate visits to U.S. or Canadian military installations that involve access to UNCLASSIFIED technical data.
