ISO 9001 is the applicable standard for organizations wishing to plan, implement, monitor and improve both operational and support processes by designing and implementing a quality management system to achieve these objectives.
The stages of ISO 9001 implementation begin with the definition of procedures and recording every single process or macro process identified within the organization.
AS/EN 9100 is a quality management standard for the ASD industry published by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). The AS/EN 9100 quality standard is based on ISO 9001, adding requirements specific to the ASD segment.
Prior to AS/EN 9100, various corporations followed different competing quality documentation and requirements, creating challenges for the industry in terms of enforcement and compliance.
