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?

During this seminar:

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