AS9100 is the quality management system for the aerospace industry

Customers in the aerospace industry want to be reassured that their business partners will continue to meet their needs for sustainable quality throughout the supply chain. To address these concerns, the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) has developed the Industry specific Aerospace Quality Management System Standards (AQMS). Based on ISO 9001, the AQMS standards are supplemented with requirements specific to both civil and military aerospace applications.

AS9100:2009 Revision C 

All three AQMS standards were revised in 2009. The new releases, AS9100:2009 Revision C, or AS9100C, incorporate recent changes to ISO 9001:2008 and introduce new requirements for aviation, space, and defense companies. The common requirements represent the combined efforts of aviation, defense, and space industry manufacturers and suppliers; civil airworthiness authorities; certification/registration bodies; as well as related trade associations to create a unifying standard.

The changes to AS9100 in Release C are the most significant since the inception of the standard. To ensure that you pass your audit, it is critical to review, understand, and properly implement the new requirements as soon as possible.

All Oriel STAT A MATRIX training courses incorporate both AS9100C and AS9100D requirements.

Our entire portfolio of Aerospace QMS courses, including our Lead Auditor Training for AS9100 and Internal Auditor Training for AS9100, have been updated to incorporate the latest versions of AS9100 and the new aerospace auditing.

Oriel STAT A MATRIX also provides directed consulting services to ensure that your organization has the necessary tools to obtain registration when audited against AS9100C.

AS9101 Revision D

In April 2010, the AQMS audit process was completely redesigned to ensure consistency in auditor understanding and implementation of AS9100C.  AS9101D defines a new process for auditing aerospace management systems (AMS) for conformance with AS9100.

Oriel STAT A MATRIX provides AS9100 training and consulting, including Lead Auditor Training for AS9100, to ensure that your organization has the necessary tools to obtain registration when audited against AS9100C.

Our award-winning AS9100 consultants include specialists with extensive aerospace experience who meet the stringent Aerospace Experience Auditor (AEA) certification requirements set forth by the Americas Aerospace Quality Group (AAQG) in AS9104/3 and by RABQSA International.

In partnership with your key stakeholders, Oriel STAT A MATRIX consultants can conduct a  gap analysis of your existing AS9100B quality management system against the AS9100C Quality Management System Requirements. Our evaluation will:

  • Review your current processes, procedures, documentation, etc.
  • Provide a gap analysis report outlining the gaps, tasks, observations, and recommendations that will enable compliance to the AS9100C standard.
  • Prepare a critical activity timeline for successful AS9100C upgrade and recertification

Oriel STAT A MATRIX regularly holds public training classes on AS9100 related topics in cities around the United States. In addition, each of our AS9100 training courses can be customized and presented at a location of your choice. For groups of five or more, on-site classes are a cost-effective, flexible, confidential way to train your employees.
