Aviation, Space and Defense are trend setters in the world of standards. You will find many new requirements and concepts in ISO 9001:2015 that the lineage can be traced back to the AS9100 Series of standards. The AS9100 is designed for any complex product or service and is used throughout the world by many different types of organizations, thus we are always looking forward to new concepts and how to achieve the Big Q.

The Aviation, Space, and Defense QMS standard, AS9100D:2016, transition period ends in September 2018. The transition mirrors the ISO 9001 and for good reason since AS9100 uses ISO 9001 as its baseline. This presentation will highlight Aviation, Space, and Defense QMS implementation status including industry trends with AS9100D:2016 certification audit nonconformities from the transition to the new standard. The presentation will cover AS9100D:2016 lessons learned and key clarifications surrounding new requirements to ensure your organization understands the intent of requirements. These posted key clarifications are to be used by organizations and auditors to realize the full benefit of AS9100D:2016 requirements. Topics will also include risk in the supply chain with types of problems and nonconformances seen in the supply chain. There are several good examples of how the new requirements in AS9100 could have avoided recent raw material, test report and counterfeit part issues. These are just a few of the concepts that aviation, space and defense have added requirements for in the most recent revision of AS9100. The world is changing and quality standards and requirements need to keep up in order to stay relevant for years to come.

You will take away from the presentation knowledge of current trends and potentially early warning of certification audit nonconformances, clarifications of requirements that have had potential for misinterpretation (includes ISO 9001 requirements), understanding of how certain requirements can be used to mitigate and even avoid product and service issues and more.
