AS9100 – Quality Management systems Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations

AS9100 incorporates all the elements of ISO 9001, plus additional elements unique to the aerospace industry. An important feature of AS9100 is the inclusion of some critical elements of MIL-Q, military specifications.

AS9110 – Quality Management System Requirements for Maintenance Organizations

AS9110 was developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) in response to increasing demands for additional requirements that address MRO-specific concerns on safety, reliability, and airworthiness. AS9110 provides additional criteria for the maintenance and repair of private, commercial and military aircraft.

AS9120 – Quality Management Systems Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Distributors

AS9120 was specifically designed for aerospace suppliers known as “stockist distributors” or “pass-through distributors” to the aerospace OEM’s. While AS9100 includes ISO 9001 in its entirety, AS9120 does not. It excludes the following ISO 9001 clauses: 7.3, 7.5.2.

Why AS9100?

The AS9100 series is the common quality management standards for the aerospace industry and includes AS9100, covering original equipment manufacturers, AS9110 for aerospace maintenance organizations and AS9120 for distributors. These standards help play an essential role in helping reduce the risk of product or service mistakes or failures which can be fatal to business operations. Certification to the relevant standard, not only demonstrates that you have an effective quality management system in place, but also it is essential to achieving your license to trade, thus critical to your business success. Once certified, you will be included in the Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS) database alongside other certified members, organizations and auditors – winning you trust as a preferred supplier. The AS9100 series also puts you in a stronger position to master continual improvement and tap into international growth opportunities.
