AS9100 - Quality Management System for Aerospace
AS9100 is the Quality Systems Aerospace Model for Quality Assurance in Design, Development, Production, Installation and Servicing.
The International Aerospace industry realized the necessity to supplement the quality system model to satisfy internal, government, and regulatory requirements applicable to the aerospace industry that ISO 9000, as a generic standard, was never designed to satisfy.
The AS9100 Certification was introduced in 1997 by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) to encourage International quality, safety and technology standards in air transport. The certification can be applied to all areas in aviation like design and manufacture of equipment, airport and airline operations, aircraft accessory supply, spares supply and maintenance. The AS9100 Certification enables an organization to demonstrate its commitment to quality, safety and reliability.
