  • Industry Association: Alliance of Automotive Manufacturers

  • Quality Standard: TL9000

  • Quality Organization: QuEST (Quality Excellence Suppliers of Telecommunications)

  • Industry Association: TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association)

  • Industry Association: Aerospace Industry Association

Audiovisual Industry
