In a few days, the MD should send communication, informing the result of the technical inspection
Saipher ATC hosted, in early September, representatives of the Ministry of Defense for an important meeting. The group, led by Cel. Eng. Mil. José Vicente Medlig de Sousa (Deprod) was with the company to check whether the conditions that gave rise to the company's accreditation, as well as the classification of its products, remain in line with Law No. 12.598 / 2012 (Brazil). It establishes special rules on procurement, contracting, and the development of defense products and systems and provides for regulations to encourage the strategic area of defense.
According to Cel. Medlig, the visit consolidates the interaction process with ED (Defense Companies) and EED (Defense Strategic Companies), "solving pertinent casual doubts and, if applicable, identifying possible obstacles to the fruition of the incentives established for the strategic area of the MD", he explains.
During the meeting, which takes place every two years, the MD addressed the evaluation process that Saipher is undergoing, as an EED, and the TATIC TWR, a product approved as PED (Strategic Defense Product). The company's Commercial Director, Luiz Henrique Tanaka, showed an institutional presentation of the company and showed Saipher's ISO9001 quality certificate to the head of the mission. The MD team also watched an institutional video and had the opportunity to visit the rooms of each department. The new structure of the company, now with a broader and more modern area, new for visitors who have been with the company for two years, was highly praised.
TAlso making part of the technical team of the MD, attending this event at Saipher, Cel. Av. R1 Alexandre Pinto Sampaio (DEPROD), SC. Daniel Santana Fernandes (DEPROD), 1st Ten Michelle Pontes (EME), 2nd Ten QOCon ADM Oderlei Ferreira dos Santos (DCTA/IFI), SC Tatiana Cristina Ladeira da Costa (DCTA/IFI), in addition to Maj. Esp. Com. Alexander Mello Lima (DCTA/IFI) and CF (Ref.-EN) Willy de Souza Lieberenz (Support Center for Logistics Defense Systems / MB).
The importance of the visit
According to the Saipher International Business Manager, Wesley Anderson Marques, the presence of the MD at Saipher is of paramount importance so that the company and its homologated products are always under the laws and requirements of the Ministry of Defense, in addition to allowing the company to contribute to the technological development of national defense systems increasingly. "Visits like this are an excellent opportunity to have questions cleared up from the authorities, expand networking, and listen to recommendations from the MD", he adds.
