Quality and reliability are critical values for the aerospace industry. In an environment where the errors or failure of products or services can be fatal, the effective operation of a quality management system plays an essential role in helping to reduce risks and provide a reliable framework for organisations to provide a product or service.
Quality Management Systems have been used in the aerospace industry for many years. Efforts by members of the aerospace industry to establish a single common Quality Management System resulted in AS9100, 9110, 9120 standards. They are used and supported by the world's leading aerospace companies and also throughout their supply chain partnerships.
The Aerospace Standards are a series of specific standards based on ISO 9001: 2015 and developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) to provide international consistency and address the specific regulatory, safety and reliability requirements demanded by the aerospace industry sector.
The aerospace series of standards cover the complete spectrum of organisations working within the aerospace sector, from design and manufacture to maintenance organisations and stockist distributors.
