AS/EN 9100

It is an international management system standard that has been established on ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard with additional exclusive requirements of aerospace and defence industries.
This standard is primarly developed for the companies that design, develop, produce defence, space and aviation products and provide post-delivery support for their own products, but may also be used by other industries’ organisations who wish.
Its primary objective is to improve quality, schedule and cost performance.
The aerospace and defense industries accept AS/EN 9100 as a means of improving quality and on-time delivery within their supply chain. Safety and reliability demands of the industry drive the need for product quality to approach near perfection. It appears that the only way to go towards perfection is to work through continuous improvement. AS/EN 9100 quality management systems is an important tool providing continius improvement covering the exclusive requirements for the abovementioned industries. Therefore, AS/EN 9100 certification is a sign of acceptability that helps to demonstrate the quality standards to customers. Certification to AS/EN 9100 is associated with the following benefits: One voice,…

AS/EN 9100 was upgraded to 2009/C revision in January 2009 to adapt the ISO 9001:2008 changes and also to include the defense sector. The latest 2016/D revision of the standard was published in September 2016 to keep the same line with ISO 9001:2015 which has considerable structural and content changes and to define the up to date aerospace/defense requirements.
