What is AS 9100 certification?
Certification to AS/EN 9100 offers benefits to suppliers that currently need to demonstrate sector specific compliance. This has significant benefits in helping reduce or eliminate multiple assessments with the additional benefits of reduction in disruption to the business, associated paperwork and costs.
Certification is provided in accordance with the global IAQG certification scheme, AS 9104 which applies only to aerospace products. Assessments are conducted by specialist assessors who have been authenticated by the aerospace industry and registered on the IAQG Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS) database. The assessment uses process based methods defined in AS9101D and reported using process effectiveness reports. Report summaries are entered onto the IAQG OASIS system.
