On Wednesday 11/10/2017 APSCO had an official ceremony at King Abdulaziz International Airport (KAIA) Jeddah, in which KAIA - Joint Inspection Group (JIG) certificate was being shared with the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) and airport authorities by APSCO’s Managing Director Mr. Mohammed Ali Ibrahim Alireza , and Fuels Director Eng. Azzam Qari. The ceremony was well received and APSCO’s efforts in complying with (JIG) standards were greatly appreciated.
APSCO has been a member of JIG since 2008 and has been actively contributing in the JIG Technical Forums and Manager workshops for the development of the JIG Standards.
JIG introduced a new process, “Inspected to JIG Standards” (IJS) and APSCO has become an early adopter of the process. APSCO has implemented the IJS process across all of its sites within the kingdom. The process requires that an approved JIG inspector inspect each facility every year in order to ensure consistency in complying with the highest aviation standards. As per the process, any location that is inspected by a duly accredited JIG Inspector, will have an inspection rating of satisfactory or good, and can be added to the list of recognized sites held by JIG. APSCO also managed to accredit two employees as approved JIG inspectors.
