The deadline to transition from AS9100 Rev C to AS9100 Rev D is September of 2019. Under the current ISO guidelines, if an organization misses this September 2019 deadline, their certification will be suspended, but they will have until the end of 2019 to complete their audits for Rev D certification. If an organization does not meet the deadline at the end of 2019, its certification under the older AS9100 standard will be revoked.
There was a previous version of the transition guidelines that would have revoked certifications by the September 2019 deadline, but the guidelines were revised to change revocation to suspension (until the end of 2019).
The announcement asks any Accreditation Bodies, Certification Bodies or Certified Organizations to communicate these rules to their members/clients immediately. A frequently asked questions (FAQ) spreadsheet is provided for this ruling on the SAE website. The actual changes in Supplement Rules Documents can be downloaded as well. The actual announcement can be accessed here. The AS9100store’s training partner, BSI international, has made more training sites and times available for its SAE AS9100 Revision D Transition Course. A complete listing of the dates, times and places of this critical profile of what your organization must do to make the change is on our AS9100store.com site.
