July 2015 Breakfast Meeting Focused on Upcoming AS9100 Changes


20150721 081008 001Alan Daniels, the IAQG 9100 Series Team Leader who is responsible for ensuring that AS9100 changes are deployed in a well-planned and organized way, spoke to a sold-out room full of aerospace quality managers during PNAA's AS9100 breakfast meeting in Bellevue.

Daniels said the pending changes were necessary to adapt to a changing world and to enhance an organization's ability to satisfy its customers. Since the ISO 9001 standards last changed in 2008, the proposed changes take into consideration new technologies, more complex supply chains, the need for sustainable development initiatives and more demanding customers.

Daniels indicated that there were nine main differences:
  • Adoption of the high level structure as set out in Annex SL of ISO Directives Part 1
  • A requirement for risk-based thinking to support and improve the understanding and application of the process approach
  • Fewer prescriptive requirements
  • More flexibility regarding documentation
  • Improved applicability for services
  • A requirement to define the boundaries of the QMS
  • Increased emphasis on organizational context
  • Increased leadership requirements
  • Greater emphasis on achieving desired process results to improve customer satisfaction

Final changes will be published in April 2016.

AS9100 is scheduled to be updated in 2016 to align the standard to the changes made to ISO 9001.  The aerospace industry has decided to maintain the alignment to the ISO standard and as a result will undergo a significant change to the AS91XX series structure and the numbering of the clauses.  A few additional requirements have been proposed and others have been removed.  Alan Daniels is the AS91XX series representative for AAQG and the Americas representative to IAQG.  He is responsible for ensuring that the changes to the AS91XX series are deployed in a well-planned and organized manner.  He will review the current status of the re-write process for the series and explain the approach to ensure that there is a smooth transition to adopt the new series.  He will highlight the changes and provide some insight into what to expect with the upcoming changes.

Topics Include:

  • A review of the major changes expected for the next revision
  • Why the numbering system is changing and the impact of the change
  • Why the ISO standard is being restructured and the impact of this change
  • How implementation of the standard will be aligned with the ISO 9001 release and with other related standards
