AS9100D is a quality management standard developed by SAE International. The AS9100D standard is primarily applicable for the aviation, space, and defense industry and incorporates the new clause structure and content of ISO 9001:2015. This standard can also be used in other industry sectors when a quality management system with additional requirements over an ISO 9001 system is needed. This standard revises the previous issue, AS9100C.
This certification is for organizations doing business in the aerospace industry such as manufacturers, contractors, and suppliers. New requirements emphasize the prevention of risk and counterfeit parts, providing a structure that enables businesses to adapt to change, planning for obsolescence, and addressing product safety concerns. The requirements in this standard are not alternative to customer/applicable statutory or regulatory requirements. In cases of conflict, the customer/applicable statutory or regulatory requirements will take priority.
Certifications are issued by third party certifying bodies. For an organization to maintain AS9100D certification, they will be subjected to annual or regularly scheduled audits where the organization’s compliance with the standard is evaluated by the certifying body.
