AS 9100: Aerospace Quality Management Systems
AS 9100 was developed to standardise aerospace quality management systems and reduce the requirement for customer audits.
The aerospace industry is a high risk sector and regulatory control is needed to capture the requirements and the importance of safety, reliability and maintainability at a global level.
AS 9100 incorporates all the foundational elements of ISO 9001 but aims to improve confidence in the aerospace supply chain with more provisions in regulatory compliance to global aerospace standards.
