  AS 9100
  Introduced in 1999 by the SAE in the U.S. and the European Association of Aerospace Industries in Europe, AS 9100 provides a framework for the harmonization of different requirements within the aerospace industry. AS9100 is now globally recognized and has been adopted by almost every major prime manufacturer in the world, not only internally but also as a quality management requirement.

AS9100 compliancy along with the ISO 9001 standards, seeks to assure customer satisfaction by having aerospace industry manufacturers produce world class quality products at the lowest possible cost. AS9100 standardizes, to the maximum extent possible, the quality system requirements of the aerospace industry. Standardization of such requirements can result in cost savings due to the elimination or reduction of unique requirements developed for each different customer.

Maintained by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), AS 9100 stakeholders include space and defense sectors, civil aviation authorities, accreditation bodies, certification bodies, and the community at large.
