AS9100 stands for the Aerospace Basic Quality System Standard. This standard was developed by a group of US aerospace prime contractors to supplement ISO 9001 and address the additional expectations of the aerospace industry.
What is an AS 9100 Certification?
AS9100 defines additional areas within an aerospace quality management system that must be addressed when implementing an ISO 9001:2015-based quality system. Typically, these requirements are included within robust aerospace quality systems. AS9100 replaces the earlier AS9000 and fully incorporates the entirety of the current version of ISO 9001, while adding additional requirements relating to quality and safety. All aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide are encouraged to comply and/or register to AS9100.

- Improved allocation and use of resources

- Increased marketability
- Increased customer satisfaction
- Reduced operating costs
