Lloyd’s Register (LR) enables you to demonstrate the integrity and rigour of your aerospace quality management systems (AQMS) through globally-recognised AS9100 certification.

Widely known as AS9100D or EN9100:2018 in Europe, certification provides customers and stakeholders with the reassurance that your AQMS supports the delivery of products and services which meet the demanding expectations of the industry.

As a market leader in the provision of certification and compliance services throughout the aerospace industry, LR’s industry specialists and aerospace engineers certify organisations to enable them to have full confidence in the integrity of their supply chain.

Benefits of AS9100

End-to-end supply chain management

Certification to AS9100 helps you optimise your organisation’s supply chain and build mutually beneficial relationships with your suppliers. By working together, delivery times and costs may be reduced, which ultimately reaches the customer, improving satisfaction and winning repeat business.

Employee engagement and decision making

By helping define and map your management system processes, AS9100 ensures employee involvement and buy-in to meet customer satisfaction goals. Leadership is imperative to the success of your AS9100 system, to make those all-important decisions to ensure continual improvement.

Improved efficiency and continual improvement

AS9100 certification requires your organisation to use a process-based approach to operations and processes within your organisation. Continual improvement is one of the core principles in AS9100, and is the process to help improve your management system over time and therefore your business performance. It helps reduce inefficiencies and ensures a smooth product and service delivery, as well as reduced costs to your business.
