The aerospace standards AS9100, AS9110 and AS9120 aim to establish minimum baselines for quality management systems for manufacturers, repair stations and stockist distributors, respectively.

As many of you know, ERAI staff is involved in the industry standards development process, specifically through SAE International. As a whole, SAE standards are developed to “ensure the safety, quality, and effectiveness of products and services”.

Many are designed with a specific focus on an activity (e.g. distribution, manufacturing, integration) and material (e.g. EEE parts, counterfeit part mitigation).

As such, these types of parts must be controlled, quarantined and ultimately eliminated. However, compliance is sometimes easier said than done despite instructions to do so coming directly from the United States Government and a leading standards development organization.
