What is IATF 16949?

AS9100 is the international management system standard for the Aviation, Space and Defense (AS&D) industry. The standard provides suppliers with a comprehensive quality system for providing safe and reliable products to the aerospace industry and also addresses civil & military aviation requirements. AS9100 is based upon ISO 9001.

AS9100D (2016) = ISO 9001:2015 + Additional ASD Requirements – therefore, certification to AS9100D includes certification to ISO 9001:2015. Read  Compare AS9100D to ISO 9001:2015.
