ASO 9100 (BS EN 9100) is the single common quality management standard for the aerospace industry. It is used and supported by the world’s leading aerospace companies and throughout their supply chains. ASO 9100 can be used by organizations across the aerospace sector, including design, manufacturing, maintenance and distributing companies. If you certify to the standard you can be confident that you have an effective quality management system in place. AS9100 may also be essential to achieving your trade license, making it essential now and in the future.
The aircraft and aerospace industries are quickly embracing ASO 9100 as a means of improving quality and on-time delivery within their supply chain. Public demand for safety and reliability drives the need for product quality to approach near perfection. The only way to work towards perfection is to work through continuous improvement. Quality management systems in conjunction with third party audits are integral to continuous improvement.
ASO 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 ASO 9000 series of standards were inadequate in terms of ensuring quality and safety in the “high risk” aerospace industry.
Among the most safety-conscious in the world, the aerospace industry has long- recognized the crucial role quality plays in the performance of aviation, space and defense products. Consumer and customer confidence is directly linked to perceptions about the quality of equipment and services manufacturers in this industry offer.
