AS/EN 9100:2016 - quality management systems for aerospace

Why a new standard?

A series of AS/EN 9100 standards were amended in 2016. These standards complement the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard by adding specifications for the aerospace industry. They focus on areas such as safety, reliability and compliance.

Suppliers and manufacturers with a certified quality management system can demonstrate that they operate in compliance with the applicable rules. As a result, they reduce the need for external audits and reviews, get easier access to major aerospace manufacturers, and they achieve budget savings by implementing an efficient production process. The quality management system based on AS/EN 9100 is recognised worldwide and is easy to integrate into your existing systems.

Why take part?

  • You will discover which requirements a quality management system based on the AS/EN 9100:2016 standard must comply with.

In-Company Training

In this type of training your requirements provide the starting point. A preliminary interview will help us adapt the content of the session to your particular needs. In-company training offers a number of specific advantages:

  • The training is tailored to the specific needs of your company. This means that your employees will be able to apply their newly acquired knowledge more rapidly after the training session.
  • Your employees will feel more involved because the exercises and cases will be specific to your company or business sector.
  • Lower cost per participant than for individual trainings.
  • Greater flexibility in the choice of the location, date and language of the training (Dutch, French or English).
