AS9100 Aerospace Management Systems is a widely adopted and standardized quality management system for the aerospace industry. AS9100 encompasses ISO 9000, with additional requirements for quality and safety relevant to aerospace. Manufacturers and suppliers in the aircraft and aerospace industries have embraced AS9100 a critical tool for improving quality and on-time delivery within their supply chain.

All major aerospace manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers worldwide endorse or require certification to AS9100 as a condition of doing business. Most of the major aircraft engine manufacturers require AS9100 certification for their suppliers. Find more information on AS9100 certification services from NSF-ISR.


AS9110, Aerospace Management System for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Stations, is based on AS9100 and adds specific requirements that are significant for the maintenance of commercial, private and military aircrafts. Certification of an MRO supplier to AS9110 is intended to provide an additional layer of control, but not act as a replacement for regulatory oversight or customer monitoring.

Organizations certified to AS9110 enjoy quality and efficiency benefits, but are also better able to define and meet customer expectations. Find more information on AS9110 certification services from NSF-ISR.


AS9120, Aerospace Management Systems for Stockist Distributors, is based on AS9100 and adds specific requirements relevant for organizations that procure parts, materials and assemblies and sell these products in the aerospace industry (e.g. stockist distributors). AS9120 addresses chain of custody, traceability, control and availability of records. The standard is applicable to organizations that resell, distribute and warehouse parts found in aircraft and other aerospace components.

ISO 14001

An environmental management system (EMS) can increase efficiencies in the use of energy and raw materials and reduce waste and costs. It can also improve compliance and risk management effectiveness. The ISO 14001 standard defines the framework for an environmental management system, and certification can enhance EMS program credibility.
