About ISO 9001
Originally published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 9001 is a generic quality systems standard that specifies, in very broad terms, the necessary components of a quality management system. Rather than being specific to any one industry, ISO 9000 details the basic requirements of the quality function for all industries. ISO 9001 gives you the tools to grow a better business through continuous improvement and refined processes. The latest version of ISO 9001 is ISO 9001:2015. Today more than 500,000 businesses have achieved ISO 9001 certification throughout the world, making it by far the most recognized symbol for quality in the global marketplace.

AS9100 is an international aerospace standard for quality assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing. AS9100 was developed using ISO 9001, AS9000 and EN9000-1, and succeeds the AS9000 standard by building upon the requirements to produce a harmonized standard that meets the requirements of aerospace companies worldwide. AS9100 is the first single standard accepted by and available for use across the global aerospace community. Additionally, AS incorporates the requirements necessary to address both, civil and military aviation aerospace needs.
The current version, AS9100 Rev. C, is the accepted standard and includes the ISO 9001 standard verbatim. In addition, there are supplementary items that address how the standard applies to the Aerospace Industry. (See more about AS9100.)
The Boeing Company required all Boeing suppliers to be BQMS (Boeing’s Quality Management System) approved or have a waiver, effective December 2003. AS9100 Rev C is a significant part of Boeing’s BQMS requirements.
General Electric Aircraft Engines (GEAE) is requiring AS9100 certification for all new suppliers, and existing suppliers have a gap audit and a certification audit performed to coincide with their existing surveillance audit schedule.
About ISO 14001
Protection of the environment is one of society’s key goals. A significant increase in environmental awareness and stricter environmental regulations has led many organizations to integrate environmental protection into their corporate management systems structure.
Leading corporations have been utilizing environmental management systems (EMS) for years to help them reach defined environmental objectives. Now, a streamlined environmental management tool is available to all corporations in the form of ISO 14001, an internationally recognized environmental management system conformance standard. Very similar in structure to the ISO 9001 quality management system standard, ISO 14001 outlines key requirements to which companies should comply in order to operate in an environmentally responsible manner.
The ISO 14000 elements provide diverse organizations a framework for managing and continually improving their environmental programs. Many companies already monitor air and water permits, or toxic use reduction programs. Utilizing ISO 14001, companies can now merge environmental programs into one coherent system to efficiently manage all environmental activities.
In short, ISO 14001 can provide your company a competitive advantage, by demonstrating to your customers that your environmental processes and impact is effectively managed, continually improving, and part of the corporate management system. (See more about ISO14001…)
