AS9100:2016 – Aviation, Space and Defense
for Manufacturers

Quality Management Systems

The most recent version of the AS9100 standard was released in September, 2016. It is based on the changes included in the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The latest version is sometimes referred to as AS9100D and is designed specifically for Aviation, Space and Defense Manufacturers. There are 105 additional requirements such as configuration management, risk management, project management, critical items, special requirements and supplier scope of approval. Seventy-five (75%) percent of the AS9100D standard is made up of ISO 9001:2015 requirements.
