Better Standards like AS9120 are Needed in Aviation Now More than Ever

AS9120 is an extension of the ISO 9001 management system designed by the International Organization for Standardization, the major difference being that AS9120 is specifically designed for airplane parts distributors. This management system is rather holistic in nature since it covers various aspects of quality control on airplane parts, including employee training, risk assessment, and traceability of defective parts. Meeting all of these safety requirements entails a lot of work on the part of the distributors, which is why obtaining an AS9120 certification is no easy task. Their effort won’t go to waste, though, since accredited distributors automatically have an edge over their competitors.
