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.
