AS/EN/JISQ 9100:2018 series – Quality in the aerospace industry

Back to Specific Industries

The highest demands on quality and safety are placed on supply chains of specific industry sectors. This definitely concerns suppliers of the aerospace industry. Operators, as well as the aerospace industry, require organizations working in this sector to implement suitable quality management systems, and to have them certified. With the AS/EN/JISQ 9100, AS/EN/SJAC 9110 and AS/EN/SJAC 9120 series, suitable standards have been developed on the basis of the internationally successful ISO 9001.

The Standard and its principles

The internationally recognized standards of the 9100 series bear the additional coding of their respective IAQG sectors (International Aerospace Quality Group) as a prefix to the number: EN for Europe, AS for the Americas, JISQ/SJAC for Japan/Asia/Pacific. All of them contain the same requirements, such as:

  • Integration of safety-oriented air traffic requirements stipulated by the
  • aeronautical authorities
  • Implementation of a suitable configuration management process
  • First article inspection
  • Risk management
  • Verification management and labeling/traceability (throughout the entire supply chain and the complete life cycle)
  • Notification requirement and implementation of an emergency concept in case of the non-conforming product already delivered
  • Evaluation of “on-time delivery performance”, formal monitoring of customer satisfaction, project management, differentiation of the key characteristics “special requirements” and “critical items”
High Level Structure

Since the structure of AS/EN/JISQ 9100:2018 series is aligned with the High-Level Structure of ISO 9001:2015, this facilitates the integration of other important major management systems such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001.
