AS9100D certification is the global manufacturing standard for products and services relating to aircraft component and materials manufacturers, aircraft part and assembly designers, quality management organizations, and related companies working alongside each other in the aerospace industry. Although certification is not a legal requirement, the new guide states that it is considered a vital indicator of best practice among those in the industry.

The latest guide highlights how AS9100D certification seeks to guide five core processes in the aerospace industry. The processes covered by the certification include quality management systems, management responsibilities, resource management, product realization, and the measure of improvement.
The certification process for AS9100D certification is rigorous. The process requires two on-site audits, numerous internal audits, and annual surveillance audits to ensure high standards are consistently maintained. As a result, AS9100D certification guarantees that aerospace companies carefully manage risk, ensure product safety throughout the entire lifecycle, prevent counterfeit components from entering the production process, and carefully monitor human interaction to ensure system failures do not occur.
Certification ensures uniform compliance among the different inter-connected businesses in the aerospace industry and safeguards the quality that pilots, passengers, and the military can rely upon when they fly.
