Langley, BC — Canadian Controlled Goods solution provider Saxon Aerospace is a leading supplier of experienced personnel and managed services solutions to the aircraft maintenance and manufacturing industries. Led by twenty-year industry veteran Tom Walters, the company leverages their specialized avionics, mechanics and structures experience to help clients overcome demanding labor requirements.
Created in 2001, the Canadian Controlled Goods Program (CGP) is a domestic industrial security program administered by the Controlled Goods Directorate (CGD) of the Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada. The objective of the program is to safeguard controlled goods within Canada and prevent controlled goods from being accessed by unauthorized persons. The CGP enforces the Defence Production Act (DPA) and is legislated by the Controlled Goods Regulations (CGR).
Certified under the Canadian Controlled Goods Program, Saxon specializes in full-lifecycle assessment, planning, implementation, change and quality management solutions. They work closely with companies certified under the Controlled Goods Program, operating in the land, sea, air and space industries. They further interface with company Designated Officials (DO) also certified under the program. A DO should be someone in the company with sufficient authority, responsibility and integrity within the organization to adequately conduct security assessments to ensure company compliance and acts as the primary point of contact for the company’s Controlled Goods Program. Saxon’s solutions also help companies that have not yet been certified quickly achieve this status.
“Designated Officials face some biggest hurdles to success. Not only is the Program new to them, but they typically have job responsibilities that take precedence to their DO duties and keep them from moving at the speed they should be.” says Walters. He further explains that with the looming government compliance deadline of October 2014 quickly approaching, “everyone is rushing to get their processes in place and make sure it is sustainable”.
Saxon’s Controlled Goods solutions help Designated Officials get rid of secondary administrative headaches and hassles associated with implementation activities, security plan writing, employee training programs and screening requirements including: security assessments, criminal record checks, telephone references and credit bureau reporting required to ensure existing employees are compliant. Doing so allows companies to maintain focus on their primary strategic business objectives. Saxon can also supply specialized controlled goods compliant personnel to help smooth out high and low capacity production workloads while reducing overall workforce costs.
“At the end of the day we offer a push-button solution to help our clients eliminate the risk of government non-compliance penalties and operational shutdown and further help them put a program in place to ensure they stay that way.” says Walters in closing.
The Canadian Controlled Goods Program helps strengthen the Canada-U.S. agreement on defense trade controls and prevents the proliferation of tactical and strategic assets including weapons, satellite global positioning systems and communications equipment, military equipment and related intellectual property. This is done by regulating and controlling the examination, possession, or transfer of controlled goods in Canada. Anyone who conducts business in Canada and examines, possesses or transfers controlled goods domestically must comply with the DPA and the CGR.
