AS/EN 9100

Aerospace quality management systems

The basis of standard is clear regulation of activities, standardization of technological and production operations and processes.

For Ukrainian aircraft companies quality management is not a new thing. Beginning from 60-70 years of the 20th century Complex product quality management system was implemented at the defense plants. Today aviation industry in Ukraine resumes this experience embodied in AS 9100/EN 9100 standards.

Aviation standard has American origin. Efforts towards the creation of unified aerospace quality system were supposed to restrict many requirements to the quality and therefore reduce expenses of the suppliers.

It is necessary to clarify that AS 9100 is an American standard while in Europe there is EN 9100, and in Asia – JISQ 9100. They are absolutely identical, the difference is in the status. Companies that are certified for the compliance with AS 9100 or EN 9100 equally meet international requirements and these standards are acknowledged without restrictions.

For the moment presence of developed, implemented and certified according to AS 9100 requirements quality management system is an obligatory requirement to the suppliers on the part of world leading aircraft producers, such as Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Pratt & Whitney. This is like an admission to the international market.
