AS 9100 – Aviation, Space & Defense


Quality, safety and reliability are critical values for the Aviation, Space & Defense (AS&D) industry.   In an industry where mistakes or failures of products or services can be fatal, the effective operation of a Quality Management System plays an essential role in reducing risks and provides a reliable framework for organizations to provide and continually improve, safe and reliable products and services that meet or exceed customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

What is AS 9100

AS 9100:2016 is the international Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space & Defense (AS&D) industry developed by Working Group 11 of ISO TC20 and supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG).  It is intended to be used by organizations that design, develop, or provide aviation, space, and defense products and services, and by organizations providing post-delivery activities, including the provision of maintenance, spare parts, or materials for their own products and services.

AS 9100:2016, which includes all requirements of the ISO 9001:2015,  is recognized and supported by all the world’s leading AS&D companies and can be used at all levels of the supply chain by organizations around the word.  It can also be used in other industry sectors when a Quality Management System with additional requirements over ISO 9001:2015 is required.

The Benefits of AS9100:

→ Improves internal processes resulting in better efficiencies and productivity

→ Ensure product safety and reliability

→ Improves customer satisfaction as customers needs and feedback are considered as part of continuous improvement.

→ Improves competitiveness / marketing edge as AS&D customers use AS 9100 as a screening process to finding new potential sources of supply.

→ Improves quality & delivery performance and such performance metrics are consistently monitored, measured and reviewed by Top Management.

→ Improves relationships with external providers through effective communications on requirements, costs and delivery.
