The revised AS 9100 standard was published on September 20, 2016. This standard includes ISO 9001:2015 quality management system requirements and specifies additional aviation, space, and defense industry requirements, definitions, and notes. It is emphasized that the requirements specified in this standard are complementary (not alternative) to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
This standard has been revised to incorporate the new clause structure and content of ISO 9001:2015. In addition, industry requirements, definitions, and notes have been revised in response to both ISO 9001 revisions and stakeholder needs.
