AS9001d Certification


Whether you are seeking AS9100 certification for the first time or want to upgrade from 9001:2015 to AS9100d, AIM is here to help.  AIM’s AS9100d consultants help companies quickly and affordably reach readiness for certification through a customized implementation process that includes gap analysis, training, documentation, auditing, and consulting services tailored to meet your needs.  

Seventy-five (75%) of the AS9100 standard is made up of ISO 9001 requirements, allowing companies to easily integrate the AS9100d requirements into their existing ISO 9001 systems. Companies not yet ISO 9001 certified, get the added benefit of receiving ISO 9001:2015 certification when they become AS9100d certified. 

What is AS9100?


AS9100, first released in 1999 is an extension of the ISO 9001 standard with added requirements to meet the needs of the Aviation, Space and Defense industry. It is maintained by the Aerospace division of SAE International and the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and these additions were developed to meet NASA, DOD and FAA quality requirements. 


AS9100 certification is often a prerequisite for manufacturers, contractors or subcontractors looking to gain a foothold in aviation, space or defense organizations.  Certification to AS9100 standards can give you access to large OEMs and other parts of the supply chain.


There are three ASD Standards, typically mutually exclusive:

  • AS9100 – Design, Develop or Manufacture

  • AS9110 – Aircraft Maintenance Organizations

  • AS9120 – ASD Distributors of components like electronics and hardware


The most recent version of the standard, referred to as AS9100D, was released in September 2016. It is based on the changes included in the ISO 9001:2015 standard. There are 105 additional requirements such as configuration management, risk management, project management, critical items, special requirements and supplier scope of approval.   


What are the AS9100D Additions to ISO 9001 Requirements?

AS9100D includes all ISO 9001 requirements and provides additional requirements relating to:

  • Production Control

  • Preventive Action

  • Counterfeit Parts

    • Recommendations for preventing the use of counterfeit parts include training of employees to recognize and prevent the use of counterfeit parts; developing controls to ensure parts and components were sourced from the original or authorized manufacturers, verification and testing methodologies to detect counterfeit parts. 

  • Risk

    • Further defines risk to include product safety, counterfeit parts, and enhanced product verification requirements. 

    • Added emphasis on risk relative to operational processes.


What is OASIS?

Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS) is a database used to assist in the management and transparency of AS9100. OASIS registration is mandatory for certified suppliers.  It is free to join and provides organizations with access to a list of certified suppliers and their audits, accredited certification bodies, and training providers.
