In the Aerospace industry, one of the main aspects of the Quality Management System (QMS) is to choose the standard for the QMS. And there are two major ISO standards available in the market i.e. AS9100 Rev D ISO 9001:2015. ISO 9001:2015 can be used by any industry but AS9100 Rev D is designed considering the aerospace industry only. In this article, we will discuss How can ISO 9001 Certification help aerospace and defense companies?
Differences between ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 Rev D
International organization for standardization (ISO) releases and maintains ISO 9001:2015 certification. ISO 9001 Certification offers the quality management requirement for any organization of any industry and is not restricted to the aerospace industry, unlike AS9100 Rev D which is exclusively designed for aerospace, space, and defence organizations.
