Will third party approvals be recognized by Boeing?

Certified quality management systems to AS 9100, AS 9110 and AS 9120 may be utilized by Boeing for approval if:

  • Certification Body is accredited for these quality management system by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) or international equivalent; and
  • Certificate of registration is to SAE AS 9104 and certified supplier is listed in the IAQG OASIS database and in good standing.
Accredited Certification Bodies (CBs) are listed at the following web site: https://www.IAQG OASIS.

What is SAE AS 9100, AS 9110, AS 9115 and AS 9120?

AS 9100, AS 9110, AS 9115 and AS 9120 are comprised of ISO 9001 quality system requirements supplemented by additional quality system requirements established by the Aviation, Space and Defense industry. The development of the supplemental requirements is the result of an international effort with a common goal of establishing common quality management systems for use within the Aviation, Space and Defense industry.

Why AS 9100, AS 9110, AS 9115 and AS 9120?

The international aerospace industry realized the necessity to supplement the ISO quality system model to satisfy internal, government, and regulatory requirements applicable to the Aviation, Space and Defense industry-- requirements that ISO, as a generic standard, was never designed to satisfy.

Are these additions above the requirements of ISO 9001?

Each additional requirement (or supplementation) to ISO 9001 can be characterized as follows:

  • Is above the requirement of ISO,
  • Clarifies an existing ISO requirement, or
  • Further defines some of the subtle relationships between the quality elements within ISO 9001.

Will AS 9100, AS 9110, AS 9115 and AS 9120 be recognized worldwide?

Yes, with clarification. The international working group agreed on the text of this standard, but the agreement stipulates that participating countries can release the standard under their own numbering conventions. For example in Europe the standard is released as EN 9100 and in the U.S. as SAE AS 9100. In the future, additional regions or countries may elect to translate the standard into their language and release it under their numbering conventions. In all cases, the resulting national versions of the standard should be identical in content.

I am a supplier in Europe and Boeing has imposed AS 9100 in their contract. EN 9100 is available in my country, but will I have to obtain a copy of AS 9100 because it is imposed in the Boeing contract?

No. AS 9100 and EN 9100 are the same, excluding the numbering convention and translation. The Boeing Company will recognize EN 9100. As other regions/countries adopt, translate, and release the aerospace quality system standard under their own numbering convention, Boeing will expand its scope of recognition.

What if my country does not have a released translated version of this international standard?

Obtain a copy of AS 9100, AS 9110, AS 9115, AS 9120 through SAE (US) http://www.sae.org or SD-STAN (Europe) http://www.asd-stan.org/index.asp or JSA (Japan) http://www.jsa.or.jp/top.asp

What do you mean by "obtain a copy" of the standard?

Boeing will not provide AS 9100, AS 9110, AS9115, AS 9120 or future equivalencies to our suppliers. We expect suppliers to "obtain a copy." In the case of AS 9100, it can be purchased through SAE. This website is linked to the SAE home page for ordering.

What is Boeing's QMS transition expectations for a new supplier?
Boeing contractually flows QMS standards (ISO 9001, AS9100, AS9110, AS9120) and expects suppliers to obtain accredited QMS certification. For AS9115 software QMS, Boeing second party approval is required, and for CMMI, evidence of CMMI recognition is required.

What are Boeing supplemental quality requirements?
The D6-82479 document contains a section 3.0, which includes supplemental language that must be addressed in the supplier's QMS. This supplementation provides clarification of Boeing QMS requirements for ensuring compliance to the AQMS standards (AS9100, AS9110, AS9120, AS9115).

How does Boeing define the term "compliance" and "conformance"?
Compliance and conformance infers that required processes have been established (e.g. quality policy, quality manual, required documented procedures) and the documentation meets the requirements of BQMS. The planned arrangements have been implemented and an Internal Audit process has been effectively implemented and maintained.

What is the difference between D6-82479 Boeing Quality Management System (BQMS) Appendix A and Appendix D approvals?
D6-82479 BQMS Appendix A applies to contracted sellers that have requirements for the design, manufacture/production, inspection, and/or conformity, of the product. This includes performing or outsourcing manufacturing/fabrication, product installation, servicing, additional inspection or test, physical re-identification, product assembly, and/or kitting processes.
D6-82479 BQMS Appendix D applies to contracted sellers carrying out the purchase, storage, splitting or sale of products without affecting the original manufacturer's product characteristics or conformity.

I am a first tier supplier with a D6-82479 Boeing Quality Management System (BQMS) Appendix A approval; do I need both D6-82479 BQMS Appendix A and Appendix D approvals?
No, a Seller with a D6-82479 BQMS Appendix A approval is not required to obtain both approvals for the distribution of aerospace products. Reference: A D6-82479 BQMS Appendix A approval is an acceptable alternative to a D6-82479 BQMS Appendix D approval.

I am a D6-82479 Boeing Quality Management System (BQMS) Appendix D distributor. Can I outsource special processing, (i.e. silver plating), and perform minor assembly work?
No. Sellers that perform or outsource manufacturing/fabrication, product installation, servicing, additional inspection or test, physical re-identification, product assembly, and/or kitting processes must have a D6-82479 BQMS Appendix A approval.

I am a first tier Supplier to Boeing with D6-82479 requirements on contract that procures products from Distributors. Do I have to procure from AS9120 certified Distributors?
No. D6-82479 Section 3, requires your organization to evaluate and select distributors based on the distributors' ability to conform to an AS/EN/JISQ 9100 or AS/EN/SJAC 9120 quality management system (reference AS9100 / AS9110 / AS9120 Criteria for selection, evaluation and re-evaluation). Method of demonstrating conformance is determined by your organization, and can include, but is not limited to AQMS certification recognition.
