EN 9100/ AS 9100
In the aerospace and defense industry, safety, reliability and quality are paramount. Quality management along the entire supply chain is therefore urgently required. The ISO 9001 quality management standard has been extended in the AS9100 standard developed specifically for the industry.
- A certified quality management system according to AS9100 forms the foundation for ongoing corporate success
- Conformity with special requirements for suppliers or manufacturers in the aerospace and defense industry
- Reduced vulnerability and lower costs
- Listing in the IAQG database (OASIS database) opens up worldwide market access for your company, to significantly increase your competitiveness
- Demonstration of your potential as a reliable and trustworthy partner
The AS9100 series of standards, valid worldwide, is regarded as a quality standard for manufacturers, dealers and maintenance personnel in the aerospace and defense industry. The contents of the American AS9100 standard and the Asian JISQ 9100 standard are identical. In September 2015, the revised AS9100 series of standards was published, introducing high-level structure (HLS). The adaptation of the standard enabled compatibility with ISO 9001.
According to the standard, we offer certifications for QM systems of the following company types:
- AS9100: QM system for manufacturers and service providers
- AS9110: QM System for maintenance and service organizations
- AS9120: QM system for dealers and distributors
Certification is based on an examination of the QM system’s documentation, processes and performance, tailored to the requirements of the aerospace and defense industry. These include, for example, risk analyses identifying and assessing internal and operational risks that enable companies to sustainably improve their processes and boost their competitive edge.
In just a few steps you can obtain your AS9100 certification:
1. Initial discussion: Examination of the general operational audit capability
