AS 9100 is the quality management standard specifically written for the aerospace industry. It had long been considered by some entities, such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), that the ISO 9000 series of standards were inadequate in terms of ensuring quality and safety in the “high risk” aerospace industry. 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.


Highlights of AS9100

Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100. Prior to the adoption of an aerospace specific quality standard, various corporations typically used ISO 9000 and their own complementary quality documentation/requirements.  

The current version of AS9100 aligns the standard with ISO 9001:2008 and has extra requirements regarding Regulatory Compliance and aerospace-sector specific requirements.  

A standard which considers the regulatory influence and many other “add-ins” directly traceable to FAA Regulations FAR Part 21, Part 39 and Part 45


AS9100 family of standards:

AS 9101 - Quality System Assessment 
AS 9102 - Aerospace First Article Inspection Requirements
AS 9104 - Standard for overall control of Aerospace Scheme
AS 9110 - Requirements for Maintenance Organisations
AS 9120 - Requirements for Stockists and Distributors
