Enabling Certification in Aviation and other Regulated Industries

Posted by Mike Hathaway on May 17, 2022 8:30:40 AM

It is essential that there is an easy-to-use auditable document signing and approval process in regulated industries. One that can demonstrate that everyone followed regulations and proper procedures at all stages across the regulated business areas. At the same time, any solution to facilitate smooth digital workflows, approvals, and digital signing should not interfere with smooth business operations.

Enabling Certification in Aviation and other Regulated Industries

Ascertia’s SigningHub delivers an easy-to-use digital signature and document approval system that meets the needs of regulated and other businesses. Airbus recently selected Ascertia as the solution to deliver digital signing and document approval for the 130,000 staff working in their highly regulated and multi-national company. The project was implemented via an Ascertia MSP, highlighting the opportunity for MSPs in Ireland to deliver similar solutions. More details on the Airbus project are given later in this blog post.

Ascertia’s SigningHub

Ascertia’s SigningHub focuses on delivering a complete document approval system for organisations of all sizes. It contains everything needed to review and electronically sign documents quickly and securely. At a high-level, Ascertia’s SigningHub deliverers in three main areas:

  • E-Signatures - legally binding e-signatures made easy.
  • E-Seals - protection for corporate documents with automated signing processes.
  • eIDAS Remote Signing - eIDAS-compliant qualified signatures with cross-border legal recognition.

You can find comprehensive overviews of these three areas and more on the Ascertia SigningHub page.

Airbus Select Ascertia for Digital Signature Initiative

Airbus is the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer, and as such, it operates at the peak of one of the most regulated industries. Airline accidents are thankfully infrequent, but when they occur there are comprehensive reviews that try to determine the cause to prevent future accidents.

A detailed review of all documentation relating to any aircraft involved is part of these reviews. This documentation must be available, and inspectors and others must trust the history of all processes related to all aircraft detailed in the electronic paperwork. Electronic document workflows and digital signatures deliver this trust. 

Airbus selected Ascertia’s SigningHub via the Belgium based MSP Zeticon (part of the Cronos Group) to help them design and deliver a digital signing and document approval system fit for their current needs but with the flexibility to change over time as required.
