AS9100D is an international management system standard for the aircraft, aerspace, and defense industry. Complying with this standard allows organizations to supply quality products and compete globally while meeting regulatory requirements. The standardized processes enable companies to have a better quality reputation and secure international business.
The AS9100D quality management system was developed from the framework of the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. This system includes 100% of the ISO 9001:2015 standard. Thus, companies certified to AS9100D will also be certified to ISO 9001:2015.
A crucial reason for implementing the AS9100D certification for your company is that customers and industries may require it. Given that most in the trade recognize the value of certified suppliers, they may require companies to evaluate and audit their suppliers. These requirements to audit suppliers are often waived for AS9100D certified suppliers, thus saving the company money.
