AS9003 Compliance Certificate
Our aerospace industry experts can launch you to success
What is AS9003?
The AS9003 standard specifies Inspection and Test Quality Systems Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations. This standard has less stringent requirements compared to AS9100, and its intent is to define a quality inspection system, not a quality management system.
AS9003 is recognized in the USA and is intended for smaller companies that might have difficulty meeting all of the AS9100 or ISO 9001 requirements. The AS9003 standard is intended to be “AS9100 Lite” for companies that make non-complex products or provide non-complex services where the quality characteristics can be fully evaluated by measurement and test of the end item without uneconomical disassembly or destructive testing. It is most common in the space and defense industry when sourcing from small volume manufacturers is necessary to provide the production priority and lead time, which a larger company won’t support.
