Requirements for Aerospace Quality Management System Certification/Registrations Programs


These requirements are applicable to IAQG sector schemes when making use of ABs, CRBs and their auditors, for the assessment and certification/registration of supplier quality systems in accordance with the requirements of this document.

The quality management system standard used by the CRB shall be 9100/9110/9120, as appropriate to the supplier's activities. It shall be applied to the supplier's complete Quality System that covers aerospace products. Sectors may use these requirements for other standards.

IAQG members have committed to recognize the equivalence of certification/registration of a suppliers quality management system to either of the AS, EN or JISQ/SJAC standards.


This Technical Report has been declared “CANCELLED” as of December 2017 and has been superseded byAS9104/1, AS9104/2, and AS9104/3. By this action, this document will remain listed in the respective index, if applicable. Cancelled Technical Reports are available from SAE.

After the initial publication of International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) 9104 standard in 2004, it became evident that a single standard containing all aspects of the Industry Controlled Other Party (ICOP) Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS) was too complex. It was decided that the standard be broken into three sections:

9104/1 – Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Quality Management System Certification Programs;

9104/2 – Requirements for Oversight of Aerospace Quality Management System Registration/Certification Programs; and

9104/3 – Requirements for Aerospace Auditor Competency and Training Courses.

The requirements for oversight and AQMS auditor qualification information (9104/2 and 9104/3 respectively) were removed from the original 9104 text. This effort necessitated the total rewrite of the initial standard, now re-designated as 9104/1, which is the keystone document of the 9104-series trilogy.
