Inspection and Test Quality Systems Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations(STABILIZED Dec 2021)
This standard includes selected quality system requirements from ISO 9001:2008and AS9100:2009 applicable to noncomplex products and associated manufacturing processes. ISO 9001 text incorporated into this standard appears in standard font; while aviation, space, and defense industry additional requirements, definitions, and notes are presented in bold, italic text.
The requirements of this standard are intended to be applied in whole, without any exclusions. Compliance with all corresponding AS9100 requirements is considered to meet/exceed compliance with the requirements of this standard.
The requirements specified in this standard are complementary (not alternative) to contractual and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Should there be a conflict between the requirements of this standard and applicable statutory or regulatory requirements, the latter shall take precedence.
The process approach described in ISO 9001 and AS9100 applies to this standard.
The stabilized status was approved by G-14 committee voting members based upon recommendations from the AS9003 Team and Space & Defense Forum user group. These groups found insufficient interest in the number of companies requesting an updated AS9003 standard and conflicting objectives of a QMS versus Inspection & Test standard.
