AAR Registry of M-1003 Certified Facilities

Commonly referred to as “the Registry” or “the M-1003 Registry”, this live, searchable database contains the most current listing of M-1003-certified facilities and the activities (products or services) covered by their M-1003 certification. It is a public database designed to inform AAR member railroads, suppliers, and others of all facilities that are certified to the M-1003 Quality Assurance Specification.

Important: The Registry contains the most up-to-date information regarding a facility’s certification status. If a facility is listed in the Registry, they have received initial M-1003 certification and their M-1003 certification is current.

Tips for searching the registry:

  • You can export the Registry as a .csv file by clicking the “Export Registry” link above the QA Code column. Keep in mind that because the Registry is a live database, exporting only captures a snapshot of the data at any given time.
  • Each column in the registry provides typical spreadsheet functionality.
  • To SORT the values in a given column by ascending or descending order, simply click the column header.
