ISO 9001 is a global standard that discusses requirements for quality management systems, and organizations make use of this in order to improve their performance, product quality and customer satisfaction. The standard is constantly revised in order to keep up with the times and to improve organizations further.
ISO 9001:2015 continues to undergo the revision process, and while it is not quite there yet in terms of replacing the existing standard, it is still on schedule to be released before the end of 2015.

Any aerospace companies, not just those that seek opportunities from the 777X launching, must consider getting AS9120 certification through accrediting firms like International Standards Authority, Inc.”
