AS9110 Aerospace Standard – Maintenance Organizations
The AS9110 aerospace standard is based on AS9100 and adds specific requirements that are critical for the maintenance of commercial, private, and military aircrafts. This standard defines the quality system requirements based on AS9100 and includes additional criteria for maintenance repair and overhaul facilities (MRO's) serving the aircraft industry. The AS9110 standard is published by SAE International and is titled "AS9110 Quality Maintenance Systems – Aerospace – Requirements for Maintenance Organizations".
The prime candidates to seek certification to the AS9110 standard are FAA 145 certified repair stations. Those seeking Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) from the FAA to manufacture aircraft parts and components are also likely to seek AS9110 certification. Some of the areas of emphasis in the standard include detecting and preventing counterfeit and suspect unapproved parts, human factors (recognizing human factors that affect workers), safety management systems, technical data, project management and risk management.
