AS 9100 Quality Management Systems for Aviation, Space & Defence

Ready for take-off with the AS 9100 Series.

Whether you are a distributor, maintenance organisation or manufacturer working within the aerospace sector, Lloyd's Register (LR) can provide you with the full range of certification services against the  AS 9100 Series.


The AS 9100 Series incorporates additions and interpretations specific to the aviation, space and defence industries. Emphasis is placed on areas deemed to have the greatest impact on safety, reliability and regulatory compliance for aerospace products. The standards include:

  • 9100 for design, development, production, installation and servicing
  • 9110 for maintenance, repair and overhaul
  • 9120 for stock holding

The aerospace industry does not have long to take action, as the transition timescale for the AS 9100 Series set by the IAQG is aligned with the ISO 9001:2015 transition deadline.

This means that from 15 June 2017, not only must all new certificates be to the AS 9100 Series, but also all visits to existing AS 9100 clients must be against the new requirements

What we offer

LR recognises that every organisation and its QMS are unique. The impact of the revision to the AS 9100 Series will depend upon the complexity of your organisation and the maturity of your management system.
