AS 9100:2016 Series On-demand Webinar

The key changes within the new standards

The revised international standards for the aviation, space and defence industries were published by the IAQG in November 2016.

As the transition timescale for the AS 9100:2016 Series set by the IAQG is aligned with the ISO 9001:2015 transition deadline, the aerospace industry does not have long to take action. This means that from 15 June 2017, both new certificates and all visits to existing AS 9100 clients must be against the new requirements within AS 9100:2016 Series.


Considering that successful transition will ensure continued certification and maintaining entry in OASIS for all aerospace manufacturers, LRQA offers a webinar to outline the requirements of the IAQG for transition as defined in SR003, and explain the timelines in relation to the transition activity.

LRQA experts provide an overview of the main changes across the standards. They also discuss the introduction of the OASIS Next Generation database and its implications on the delivery and management of audit activity, as well as how the role of certified companies has been redefined within the database.
