MTC Powder Solutions joins the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register

March 24, 2021

MTC Powder Solutions (MTC PS), Surahammar, Sweden, is now part of JOSCAR (the Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register), a collaborative tool used by the aerospace, defence and security industries to act as a single repository for pre-qualification and compliance information.

Provided by Hellios Information Limited, Oxford, Oxfordshire, UK, one of JOSCAR’s key aims is to ensure that the information that suppliers and third parties are asked to provide to their clients is proportionate to the types of goods of services being supplied. A dynamic two-stage process is used to ensure that the process is tailored, and therefore as efficient as possible.

Stage 1 collects basic information about a supplier or third party to produce a profile on their legal entity, financial status and the nature of goods and services being supplied. This information allows an inherent risk assessment to be performed, which determines if Stage 2 is needed in order to collect more detailed information.

Stage 2 requires the completion of a more detailed questionnaire along with supporting evidence, such as policies and certificates. To make the process as efficient as possible, only questions relevant to the nature of goods and services indicated in Stage 1 are asked, and most of the questions have selectable answers rather than requiring lengthy written responses.

MTC PS can now benefit as a supplier demonstrating compliance to multiple customers and offer direct support to customers’ needs effectively.
