FAA added 787-8 production to Boeing’s PC 700 certificate in July 2012.
Boeing said the certificate is issued once an aircraft manufacturer has demonstrated to the FAA that its facilities and quality management system meet the agency’s stringent safety and reliability requirements.
The addition of Boeing South Carolina’s 787-9 production to the Boeing production certificate follows a successful FAA Manufacturing Inspection District Office audit that validated the site’s compliance with the Boeing Quality Management System.
Boeing announced in July 2014 it will build 787-10s exclusively in South Carolina.
