About ISO 9001:2015
Established by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 9001:2015 is recognized as the worldwide standard for quality management systems and practices. The standards body provides requirements, guidance and tools for companies and organizations that want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer’s requirements, and that quality is consistently improved. It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity.
ISO 9001:2015 has been implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.
AS9100 — is the most recent standard for organizations that design, develop or provide aviation, space and defense products and services, including parts, components and assemblies. The standard was prepared by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) with the help of representatives from aviation, space and defense companies in the Americas, Asia/Pacific and Europe.
Like past versions of AS9100, EN9100:2018 standardizes quality management system requirements for companies involved with the aerospace industry and supply chain. The standard does so by building off general ISO 9001 standards for quality management systems, adding industry-specific guidelines for the safe development, production and distribution of quality aerospace parts and products.
