The AS9100 ISO standard is the aerospace industry’s quality management system requirement based on the ISO 9001 international standard.
It was designed to reduce defects in the supplier chain and to continuously improve quality and boost customer satisfaction and was developed by 11 prime US aerospace contractors such as McDonnell-Douglas Corp., Lockheed-Martin, General Electric, and The Boeing Company, to name a few.
The current version, AS9100D was released in 2016 to incorporate the latest quality system requirements of ISO 9001:2015 with the addition of quality system requirements specific to the aerospace industry. The standard provides suppliers with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products to the aerospace industry
With Quality and reliability being one of the critical values for the aerospace industry, in an environment where the errors or failure of products or services can be fatal, the effective operation of a quality management system plays an essential role in helping to reduce risks and provide a reliable framework for organisations to provide a product or service.
Therefore certification with this standard ensures you put health & safety first whilst navigating the many regulations of the aerospace industry to achieve full compliance with AS9100 (BS EN 9100).
