International aerospace quality assurance system AS9100D

With nearly 100 additional requirements specific to aerospace, AS 9100:2016 provides suppliers with a comprehensive quality system focused on areas directly impacting product safety and reliability in the aerospace industry. These include:

  • configuration management – requires that a management discipline be applied over the life cycle of an aerospace product to provide visibility and control of its functional and physical characteristics
  • design – ensures that design responsible organisations have a robust design process to meet safety and reliability requirements demanded by the aerospace industry
  • purchasing – requires suitable controls over the organisation’s entire aerospace supply chain
  • product realisation – ensures that each phase of product realisation, from planning to shipment, is tightly controlled for delivery of conforming product
  • product monitoring/measurement – that defines requirements for product validation prior to shipment
