The aerospace standards 9100/9110/9120 are based on ISO 9001, with additions and interpretations specific to aviation, space and defense industries. The development of the standards has been harmonized under the auspices of the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). The standards are now contractual requirements for organizations wanting to supply many of the world’s largest manufacturers of aviation, space and defense equipment. The standards include:
- 9100 for design and manufacture.
- 9110 for maintenance repair and overhaul.
- 9120 for stock holding.
The 9100 standard is issued in the Americas as ‘AS 9100’, in Europe as ‘EN 9100’ and in Asia-Pacific as ‘JIS Q 9100’.
