The AS9100 quality management standard, prepared by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), details the supplementary requirements to the ISO 9001:2000, which those in the aerospace industry must meet in order to obtain certification. Simply known as the AS9100, it actually stands for Aerospace Basic Quality System Standard. It was conceived after it was realized that the aerospace industry had expectations not covered by the earlier version of the ISO 9001:2000 standard.
A qualified AS9100 registrar like one from International Standards Authority, Inc will be responsible for auditing the quality management system of your company or organization to confirm whether or not it meets the ISO standards. The services of a registrar are then extended to a client company or organization after the latter has settled a corresponding cost in exchange. A registrar is otherwise referred to as the certifying agency.
