- Other AS9100 Audit-Related Standards
This standard defines requirements for the preparation and execution of the audit process. (This is what the Registrars will use to perform your audit)
Additionally, it defines the content & composition for reporting audit
conformity and process effectiveness to the 9100-series standards, the organizations QMS documentation, and customer/regulatory requirements.
Focus on EFFECTIVENESS and not just conformity
Some forms have been made more simple, so the auditor can spend more time auditing than complete forms. Note: the unwieldy Objective Evidence Report (OER) has been eliminated.
Every process should be audited to determine:
- Is the process identified and appropriately defined?
- Are responsibilities defined?
- Are procedures implemented and maintained?
- Is the process achieving effective results?

- Integrate the requirements of 17021 for CB’s
- To focus on a process-based approach. (NOTE: It is NOT a checklist)
Historically, each of the Aerospace Standards had their own checklist:
- AS9100:2004 (Rev B) used AS9101C
- AS9110:2003 used AS9111
- AS9120:2002 used AS9121
