AS9100, AS9110 & AS9120 Aerospace Quality Management Systems
These are a series of standards specific to the Aviation, Space and Defence industry sectors.
Aerospace, defence and the space industry are three of the most heavily regulated sectors around the globe. Unlike many industries where customer service and quality management systems are paramount, lives are at stake if these types of organisations do not achieve this sector’s version of ISO certification – referred to as AS Standards.
While it does incorporate aspects of ISO 9001 Quality, the AS series is adapted for the specific sectors listed above and covers risk management as well as quality.
The AS standard that you choose to strive for depends on which specific section of these industries your business operates in:
The AS9100 standard covers Manufacturing in the Aviation, Space and Defence industries. It focuses on ensuring that your products meet the requirements of your customers and of the industry and requires you to set up procedures for monitoring this. It includes the requirements covered in ISO 9001 Quality, but has been adapted to include the requisite specifics related to your aviation, space or defence manufacturing industry sector.
The AS9110 standard is for Maintenance operations within the Aerospace industry sector. It focuses on ensuring that your services meet the requirements of your customers and the aviation industry and requires that you set up procedures for monitoring this. It includes the requirements covered in ISO 9001 Quality, but has been adapted to include the specifics related to maintenance requirements unique to the aviation maintenance industry.
Due to the highly legislative nature of this industry, many established companies demand compliance in one of the AS 9100 Aerospace series from the businesses they buy from.
Many of our Qualitators are aviation industry experts and will guide you through the certification process (including providing advice on which certifier to choose), helping your business achieve the standard it needs to operate in this area.
