ISO 45001: 2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

The standard for a safe working environment

ISO 45001:2018 is a Health and Safety Management System developed to assist in the reduction and prevention of accidents and accident-related loss of lives, equipment and time.  OHSAS 18001:2007 was migrated to ISO 45001:2018 and with it came a number of significant changes to bring the standard in line with ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015

AS9100 & AS9120 Aerospace Management Systems

Improving the safety and reliability of the Aircraft, Space, and Defense (AS&D) industry

AS9100 was developed to standardise Aerospace quality expectations on a global level and to capture regulatory requirements and importance of safety, reliability or maintainability.

The writing team formed in 1995 and included major OEMS such as Boeing and Airbus, the FAA, NASA, Department of Defence. They worked together to seek an enhanced version of ISO 9001 to replace the U.S. Military Quality Assurance/ Quality Control Standards and to respond to the aerospace supply chain pleas for a single standard.

The current version of the standard; AS9100 Rev D was recently updated and now requires organisations to pay more attention to the processes and steer away from clause based audits.

The AS9100 Standard requires all certified organisations to be included on the international aerospace quality group’s website within the oasis database.  This database ensures that only UKAS Certified organisations hold certification and results of audits shown.  The database also holds the list of approved Certification Bodies and Aerospace Auditors.

Accord is experiencing a great deal of interest in the AS9100 and AS9120 certification standard, and this seems certain to increase greatly. We are equipped to assess your systems to a high standard and provide a value-added service and systems are easily integrated with current standards such as ISO9001 & ISO14001.

The advantages of AS9100 & AS9120 certification
