AS9100D:2016 Transition Timeline

AS9100 Aerospace Management System

The AS9100D:2016 Aviation, Space and Defense Standard was projected since the publication of ISO 9001:2015 last September to be released in April 2016. As of this post, the standard has not been released.  The following is the latest information from the IAQG Website.

“The International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) has agreed to align transition to the forthcoming revised 9100:2016 series standards with the International Accreditation Forum’s (IAF) Resolution 2013-15, which requires transition to the ISO9001:2015 quality management system (QMS) standard no later than 15 September 2018.

The 9100:2016 series of standards will be published concurrently across Americas, Asia-Pacific, and European sectors. The timing of this concurrent release will result in the AS9100:2016 publishing starting in October 2016, 9101 and 9110 in November 2016 and 9120 in December 2016; given a worst case scenario. “Efforts are being made to shorten the publication time spans and publish concurrently as soon as possible”.

If the revised standard release remains with October 2016, the current requirement of all AS9100C organizations to transition NLT September 2018, may still remain – TBD. Considering that all certification body auditors will have to be formally trained prior to performing any transition audits, this will be a challenge. Stayed Tuned – we will keep you informed!
