Conecsus Aerospace follows strict and documentable procedures with regard to mutilation and destruction of our customers’ material.
Features of our program include:
Mutilation will be in accordance to FAA AC 21-43A Appendix D
All customer-provided written procedures will be maintained at our facility for a minimum of four years from the last transaction
Each mutilation transaction will be verified and documented to ensure compliance to both customer specifications and our own internal procedures
Audits of our internal documentation will be carried out on a semi-annual basis
Annual review of FAA policy for any changes related to our industry
Additionally, a unique Certificate of Destruction will be provided to our customers for each lot or sorted sub-lot. This Certificate of Destruction certifies that the mutilation and recycling of these materials has been accomplished. Conecsus Aerospace will maintain these records at our facility for a minimum of four years.
Any incoming material that our customers deem “potentially usable” will be mutilated beyond its original use by one of the following methods:
Plasma Torch / Arc Air notching or critical gouging
Cutting using an Oxy-Acetylene torch
Cutting using a chop saw that will deem the part unusable
The choice of method of mutilation will depend upon the customer’s requirements and specific part size.
Additionally, no un-mutilated material will be left in an unlocked or unattended area at any time.
