The Significance of AS9120 QMS for Aerospace Product Distributors


Aerospace commodity items are essential in the proper functioning and guaranteed safety of aircraft. The distributors of these products—raw materials, bearings, paints, fasteners, coatings and gaskets—may not have a role in the development of these components, but these players certainly have an effect on the final product. This is because there would be significant effects on the finished aircraft’s performance if there is improper handling of parts and materials, as well as the loss of traceability from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to the customer.

That is why the industry put strict regulations in place. For pass-through distributors of aerospace commodity items, they have the AS9120 QMS (quality management systems). The standard is based on the ISO 9001:2000, with the addition of almost 100 specific requirements for aerospace distributors.
