The latest in our aerospace webinar series will review the expectations of AS9100D Clause 4: Context of the Organization. Clause 4 states that an organization must consider both the internal and external issues that can impact its strategic objectives and the planning of the Quality Management System.

Many management systems standards now have the same 10-clause structure, called Annex SL. The AS QMS requirements take into account new requirements from aviation, space and defense and other QMS standards, incorporates stakeholder feedback and provides a common baseline with ISO 9001 which benefits:

  • Suppliers with dual certification requirements
  • Sub-tier suppliers who only need ISO 9001
