With just a matter of days to go until the first implementation deadline of the reformed AS9100 Series for Aerospace, Bureau Veritas is helping to provide greater guidance for organisations who must adhere to the changes with the launch of a new paper.
From 15 June 2017, all audits must be undertaken to the new version of the AS9100 standard. In addition to this, all organisations who are certified to the current standard will need to transition to the new version by 15th September 2018.
Globally considered the ‘gold standard’ in the aerospace industry, the AS9100 is a widely adopted and standardised quality-management system recognised by all major aerospace and defence original equipment manufacturers, and has been revised to reflect the changes to ISO 9001, made in 2015. The standard provides a structure for process control, defect prevention, reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain, continual improvement and effectively meeting customer requirements.
As leading certification experts committed to making easier work of regulatory reforms for organisations, Bureau Veritas has launched a brand new white paper designed to provide greater clarity on the changes and what it will mean for them.
The paper – written by Roger Ritterbeck, an Aerospace Product Manager at Bureau Veritas – explores the key changes to the standard, how it works in the context of an organisation, the planning required around the transition period and the support available.
Trevor Douce, International Aerospace Business Director at Bureau Veritas comments: “Amongst other things, the changes implemented in the reformed AS9100 are vital in order to ensure it is adequately aligned to the evolving landscape and reflective of the increasingly complex environments which today’s organisations operate in. As such, while it may mean new changes for organisations to get to grips with, it will ensure that this widely accepted ‘gold standard’ in the aerospace industry provides a consistent foundation for the future.
“From our experience of helping a large number of our clients comply with AS9100 in the UK, we recognise that the changes, being extremely intricate, can come as a minefield. We have therefore developed this white paper to provide one simple and holistic point of reference.”
Trevor adds: “Looking towards the September 2018 deadline, we cannot urge companies enough to act quickly and take action towards compliance now. Although the deadline may seem like a while away, it is worthwhile reaching out to your certification company in order to get an update on what you need to know and which changes in the auditing process will impact you so you are fully prepared.”
