Aerospace Auditing, Training & Certification
AS9100 Rev D, AS9110 and AS9120 Rev B are specific international standards for the increasingly competitive Aviation, Space and Defense Industry. These standards were developed to produce a harmonized platform to ensure that all operations in the supply chain are adhering to best practice. They include all the existing elements of ISO 9001 2015 and a variety of aerospace sector-specific requirements.
The AS9100 Rev D series of standards are changing
All organizations currently certified to AS9100 Rev D, AS 9110, and AS 9120 Rev B will be required to successfully transition to the new versions by September 14, 2018. Furthermore, all audits conducted after June 15, 2017 will be to the 2016 version of these standards.
The Aerospace standards seek to
- Improve customer satisfaction, quality & on-time delivery
- Promote product/service safety
- Identify, mitigate and manage risk
- Prevent the introduction of counterfeit or suspect parts into the AS&D supply chain
- Reduce costs & lower customer-unique requirements
- Reduce the variation caused by multiple expectations
- Reduce and streamline audits conducted along the aerospace supply chain
AS9100 Rev D’s
key aspects include safety, airworthiness, product conformity and reliability in the aerospace industry. These quality requirements are crucial to aerospace OEMs, which maintain high levels of liability for their product.
focuses on the control of repair schemes and maintenance plans, configuration management, and the skills and qualifications necessary to perform maintenance, repair, and overhaul tasks within the aerospace community.
AS 9120 Rev B
was developed for pass-through distributors of aerospace commodity items. This standard address chain of custody, traceability, control and availability of records.
ISO 9001 2015
is the quality management system on which AS 9100 Rev D is based. While most aerospace suppliers choose AS9100 Rev D registration as their primary management system certification, the option exists to register your organization solely to ISO 9001 2015.
As the world becomes more complex, organizations are exposed to more risks than ever before. A strategic approach to managing risks is of critical importance to organizations operating in the Aerospace industry. At PLANET ISO, we are committed to helping organizations reduce or eliminate at-risk opportunities within their supply chain, helping to ensure the security of an organization’s international shipments, and providing that along the way an organization and their supply chain comply with corporate values, labor laws, and environmental/work safety compliance.
Integration of the AS 9100 series of standards within a single quality management system is permitted, potentially resulting in reduced duplication of audit requirements.
