Representing an international effort to formulate a quality management system standard for the aerospace industry, AS9100 is showing its long-term value. The standard supplements ISO 9001 by addressing the additional expectations and requirements of the aerospace industry.

The industry experts who wrote the standard and the representatives who approved it all agree that these additions are essential to ensure product, process and service safety and quality.

All quality systems must be designed to meet the specific needs of the users. AS9100 identifies areas to address which are specific to the aerospace industry.  To be effective, these requirements must be incorporated into a robust quality system that's both effective and efficient. This system should be an integral part of the practices and processes spanning all areas and functions of the business.

We have been working with aerospace companies for fourteen years. We have worked with machine shops, manufacturing companies and service companies from ten employees to more than two thousand employees. Don't think of AS9100 as just an expensive hoop to jump through. If you do it correctly, it will save you money, but doing it correctly is not simple, and it cannot be done overnight.

We provide consulting, training and auditing. We will work with you to create a quality management system that will work for you at very competitive prices.

We can also do your internal audits for you.

Attention distributors: we provide all the same services for those wanting to get registered to AS9120.

AS9100 Rev C has been released

AS9100 Rev C incorporates the changes from ISO 9001:2000 to ISO 9001:2008 (minor changes for improved understanding) plus significant changes to the aerospace-specific sections of the standard.

The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) has established a 30-month transition timeline for existing certified organizations. That transition period ends June 30, 2012.
