AS9100 is an aerospace standard based on the ISO 9001 quality system requirements which includes additional requirements to satisfy DOD, NASA and FAA quality requirements. The intent of AS9100 is to establish a single Quality Management System for use within the aerospace industry. The standard is supported by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). When you become AS9100 certified, you are dual certified to ISO 9001 without any additional audits or requirements.

AS9100 includes the quality management standards for the aviation, space and defense industry, and is used by the world’s leading aerospace companies and applied throughout their supply chains. AS9100 can be used by organizations across the sector, including design, manufacturing, maintenance, and distributing companies. 

For company's seeking to become suppliers of large aerospace OEM's it should be noted that AS9100 is a pre-requisite for consideration to become a supplier.
