AS9100 (JISQ9100) is a management system standard for ensuring product quality in the aerospace industry supply chain. Developed by Woking Groups and respected in countries such as the United States, Britain, Germany, and Japan. This standard incorporates ISO 9100 standards plus 13 additional sector specific requirements, such as "configuration management". In the very near future it will be necessary for companies to be AS9100 certified in order to enter and obtain a trade license in the growing aerospace market.
