Basic Differences Between AS9100C And AS9100B

The AS9100C is the quality standard for the aerospace industry. Specifically the “Quality Management System” governs quality and safety standards for aerospace manufacturers and suppliers.

The AS9100C was released in January of 2009 with the intention of incorporating the details of ISO 9001:2008. Both set standards for the industry regarding regulatory and statutory product requirements, as well as standards for meeting customer and investor needs.

An AS9100C Certified company has met these new requirements. These include additional standards related to risk management (control, analysis, evaluation) and configuration management (process of planning, identifying, control and auditing during product realization.)

AS9100B has many amendments, new requirements and deletions from AS9100C that require some focused study to understand. The language of AS9100B has extensive deletions and amendments to better define certain requirements. In addition, revision B expands the language to encompass all related industries including defense, space and aviation.

Much of the difference between being AS9100C Certified and AS9100B Certified lies in understanding the language clarifications and deletions in the new revision. These new standards require complete customer service tracking, careful project management and increased diligence to risk management. Fortunately, there are half day seminars available to make this process easy, if not loads of fun.
