AS 9100 is the quality management standard specifically designed 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. AS 9000 was first published in August 1997 and was designed to meet the inputs from a number of large aerospace companies and was designed to comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:1994. Later, in 1999, the first revision of AS 9100 was published by The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International), with inputs from the American Aerospace Quality Group (AAQG) and support from the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC).
The current version of AS 9100 standard is designed with the specific requirements of ISO 9001:2015, with extra requirements regarding Regulatory Compliance with following requirements:
As a result, ISO 9001:2015 is totally encompassed within AS 9100 with these additional requirements applied specifically addressing aviation safety concerns. It is also the only standard which considers the role of the Regulatory Authorities and so many of the 'add-ins' are directly traceable to FAA Regulations.
However, it must be remembered that AS 9100 remains complementary to contractual and applicable law and regulations. Any business implementing an AS 9100 compliant quality system must ensure the additional requirements of their customers, regulatory agencies (FAA, JAA, etc) and local, state and national laws are referenced within the systems documentation.
