AS9100 Certification and the Changes You Need to Know
The new AS9104/1A includes some major revisions from the previous version. AS9104-1 provides the requirements for managing the aerospace quality management systems (AQMS) certification scheme or ICOP scheme. AS9014-2 and AS9014-3 give requirements for the oversight process and the AQMS auditor qualification and training requirements.

What impact will it have on Aerospace Suppliers?
  • Up to 30% can be conducted remotely
  • Going forward, only single and multiple sites will be recognized. Campus and several sites will be removed
  • Organization Certification Analysis Process (OCAP) will be utilized to determine audit duration and in some minimal instances allow for decreases
  • Audit planning time of 10% will also be added to the audit calculations.
  • Purchasing is no longer required to be audited annually
  • Audit time may be reduced up to a maximum of 50% (through PBS/RP – Performance Based Surveillance/RP Recertification Process)
  • Non-applicable processes shall result in reduced audit duration from the established minimum baseline.
  • Depending on risk, performance, improvement and other factors, audit time may be increased or reduced at each site.
  • Audit report writing will now be included in audit duration calculations with a minimum 10% addition.

Going forward, audit planning will require client participation and submission of QMS performance and change data in advance of any audit. This allows the lead auditor to analyze the data and determine the audit time. Part of the audit planning includes the OCAP process and risk assessment which considers:
  • Meeting customer requirements – on time delivery performance
  • Customer complaints and returns
  • KPI results
  • PEAR scores
  • Internal auditor competence
  • Size and complexity of the site

How to prepare for changes?
  • Consider your site structure and if the changes impact your audit durations. We will be in contact with you to discuss any additions or reductions in audit time.
  • In the audit planning process, be sure to complete the data forms issued and ensure the data is true and accurate.
  • Seek additional training for your management rep or internal auditors
  • Understand your PEAR scores
  • More attention will be placed on audit and KPI performance which will impact audit time so it’s to your benefit to make these a key focus
  • Analyze your on-time delivery and quality performance

Cyber Security, Is Your Supply Chain Protected?
An increase in supply chain attacks over the last ten years has heightened the need for a systematic approach to supply chain security, according to the Security Think Tank on

"The approach, therefore, should be to require that their systems are certified to standards such as ISO 27001 or Cyber Essentials Plus. Suppliers should also be regularly audited and, ideally, they should carry out regular security testing of their systems. There is a lot of good guidance available on this, in particular from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)."
