The JOSCAR accreditation system that operates in the Defence, Aerospace and Security sectors helps determine if a supplier is fit for business.

Global workwear textile manufacturer, Carrington Textiles, has announced the company’s recent JOSCAR accreditation which works as a compliance system for suppliers to the defence, aerospace and security industries.

The ‘Joint Supply Chain Accreditation Register’ (JOSCAR) is a collaborative tool used to act as a single source for pre-qualification and compliance information. Membership is designed to improve the efficiency of both the supplier and buyer communities by ensuring that companies only use products and solutions of the highest quality and that comply with best practices.

Carrington Textiles Sales Director, Paul Farrell, says: “Holding this accreditation will make the process of trading in these sectors easier. We’ve been a long-serving supplier to many armed forces and believe that the JOSCAR accreditation will benefit our future trading relationships in the industry”.
