Aerospace and Defense Compliance

Concord Compliance has the experience and expertise to help organizations in the Aerospace and Defense sector.

Compliance management for Aerospace and Defense

The Aviation, Space, and Defense industry is subject to the AS91XX family of compliance standards. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and maintained by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), the AS91XX collection of standards covers an extensive range of areas such as configuration management, product safety, post-delivery support, and material testing, among others.

Failure to comply with these standards can result in non-compliance penalties and the organization will be held responsible for nonconformity consequences.

Crucial standards for the Aerospace & Defense industry

Aerospace ISO Standard AS9100D

For companies that manufacture or supply aerospace and defense parts, the AS9100 standard requires that these organizations ensure and provide the highest quality of service and product to their customers and business partners. This standard is designed to reduce costs and increase work speed and performance for organizations within the A&D industry.

Aerospace ISO Standard AS9110C

While it includes most of the same content as the AS9100 standard, the AS9110 standard is a set of requirements designed specifically for civil and military aerospace repair stations. Therefore, organizations that provide aerospace equipment maintenance typically prioritize the AS9110 standard compliance certification.

Aerospace ISO Standard AS9120B

The AS9120 standard defines specific requirements for organizations that supply components to the A&D industry. This standard requires traceability of materials, protection of the stored materials, and the keeping of records that indicate these requirements were met.

Aerospace ISO Standard AS5553A

The AS5553 standard reduces the risk of organizations buying counterfeit parts from fraudulent providers by requirements that optimize the buying and inspection processes. By achieving AS5553 certification, organizations are equipped to prevent counterfeit purchases and mitigate major losses in finances and productivity.
