What do the AS 9100 standards cover?

The AS 9100 standard define the requirements for a certifiable quality management system (QM system) of an organisation. These requirements include, but are not limited to:

  • The organisation has established a suitable management system, including mechanisms for risk identification, self-assessment, preventive and corrective actions and continuous improvement of its performance.
  • The organisation analyses and considers the quality requirements of its customers and the requirements of the applicable codes and standard.
  • The certified organisation defines the required characteristics of the products and services offered and the underlying processes and ensures regular surveillance to meet the quality requirements of customers, authorities and regulatory bodies.


  • What do “Certification” or the issue of a certification mark according to AS 9100 by TÜV SÜD South Asia mean?
    • The customer has submitted to voluntary assessment (audit) according to defined criteria (certification standard).
    • A certificate and/or the authorisation to use a certification mark is only issued if the assessment (audit) does not reveal any major nonconformities with the requirements of the certification standard.
    • The certificates and/or certification marks are valid for a restricted period of time. Interested parties can check the validity of individual certificates in the certificate database of TÜV SÜD South Asia Pvt. Ltd.
    • To maintain certificate validity, the certificate holder must annually complete an announced audit with a positive result.
    • Unscheduled audits and assessments are possible in specific cases. They can be carried out by the certification body or by IAQG/CBMC (International Aerospace Quality Group/Certification Body Management Committee).
  • How is the assessment/audit performed?

    Independent and qualified experts (auditors) apply the following auditing techniques:

    • Document review

    Evaluation of the organisation’s requirements and/or documentation to ensure systematic control of all processes relevant for quality management.

    • On-site audit

    Verification, in the form of interviews and on-site inspection at the customer's premises, that the above requirements are effectively implemented in practice. Random on-site checks of processes based on records, such as available measurement results, minutes of meetings, training and qualification records, complaints management and records related to defined objectives and the resulting improvement projects.

  • What is beyond the scope of certification according to the AS 9100 standard?
    • Certification according to AS 9100 does not constitute product certification. Certification thus does not provide any direct statements on the quality of a product or service of the certified customer. Certification according to AS 9100 does not mean that the company manufactures products or provides services of higher quality.
    • Certification according to AS 9100 does not ensure in each specific case that a product or service complies with customer requirements, even though this is one of the key objectives of quality management.
