WHAT IS AS 9100?

AS 9100 is the 2009 revision of the Aerospace Standard ("AS") containing requirements for establishing and maintaining a quality management system (QMS). AS 9001C includes the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 plus additional requirements for the aviation, space, and defense industries.

Instead of specifying the requirements of the final product , AS 9100C focuses further “upstream” on the processes or how you produce. AS 9100C requires documented systems for controlling the processes, that is used to develop and produce the products.

BENEFITS of AS 9100

The benefit of Certification to AS 9100C assures customers that the company has the ability to produce, and continually improve, safe, reliable products on time. Some of the other benefits a company might expect to see include:

The benefits of becoming certified are numerous: companies should ensure that they are pursuing certification for the right reasons:

  • Provides for consistent application of requirements throughout the supply chain.
  • Provides for active industry participation and control.
  • Provides for data sharing which helps benchmarks in the industry in terms of Quality System compliance.
  • Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEMs) are not absolving themselves of any responsibilities with respect to the supply chain / products.
  • Supplements OEM’s own surveillance process and allows for more focused process and products audits.
  • Registration increases the level of surveillance by covering suppliers that the OEM’s do not cover directly.

WHAT IS REQUIRED – A SNAPSHOT
  • A Standard language for documenting quality practices.
  • A System to track and manage evidence that these practices are instituted in your business.
  • An independent audit to assess and certify compliance.

TIME LINE OF IMPLEMENTING AS 9100C

It is obvious that there are many advantages to ISO certification. Certification should not be undertaken lightly, however, as it is time consuming and costly. By rough estimate, it can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months, to document and establish your business operations, with another one to three months to verify against actual operations.

FUTURE

ISO 9001:2008 was updated in November 2008.

In future the ISO standards shall determine the competency of an organization in the global market. Getting this certification will become mandatory in the days to come.
