AS13100

services overview :: AS13100

We Specialize in Quality Management

Preparing companies for compliance to the newly released AS13100 standard.


What is AS13100?

  • The standard was created by the SAE G-22 Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Technical Committee in an effort to combine common supplier quality requirements imposed by Aerospace Engine Manufacturers.Additionally, the intent of this standard is to simplify supplier quality requirements that are in addition to the requirements of AS9100 Quality Management Systems – Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Organizations and AS9145 Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval Process.
  • Previously the Aerospace Engine Manufacturers based their supplier quality requirements on 9100 but had differing supplemental requirements and guidance albeit with largely the same intent. These supplemental requirements originate from the need to meet Regulatory, Customer, Industry, and Business requirements that are not specifically covered by AS9100 and AS9145.
  • This standard sets out to create a common set of supplemental requirements with common reference materials to improve understanding, efficiency, and performance. While significantly simplifying the businesses of suppliers with multiple customers, the primary intent of this new standard is to improve overall product quality by focusing on the key systems and processes currently deterring consistent aerospace engine product quality.
  • These common supplemental requirements aim to raise the bar for anticipated performance in these key areas, and therefore the AESQ group has created detailed guidance to ensure clarity of expectations.
  • The main focus of AS13100 is a “Zero Defect” mentality throughout the entire supply chain.
  • Structured in same manner as ISO9001 and AS9100 with 10-sections
  • Appendices at the end of the document provide detailed information related to requirements contained within the standard
  • Standard contains reference to other AESQ Publications which contain detailed support information
  • Many of the sections are the same as AS9100 and reference AS9100 respectively (e.g., Section 4.1 and 4.2)
  • Companies will need to demonstrate they have the proper documentation and controls in place to meet the requirements of the standard.
  • Implementing the elements of the Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Design and/or Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEAs and PFMEAs) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)
  • Ensuring your system is capable of inspecting products to the customer’s requirements, both repeatedly and reliably and demonstrating this via a Measurement System Analysis
  • Perform internal audits to the standard, complying with all requirements for internal auditors.
  • Control sub-tier suppliers by ensuring they also have controls in place.
  • Any company who has AS13100 contractually imposed on their contracts must demonstrate compliance
  • Customers may flow this requirement in separate Quality Notes, Quality Clauses or even a footer
  • If AS13100 is flowed to your company, you are required to flow it through the entire supply chain
  • Within AS13100, Table 1 defines the applicable elements of the standard various organizations must demonstrate compliance
  • Currently, there is no certification for this standard.Companies are only required to be compliant as of January 1, 2023.  Prime contractors are responsible for not only flowing the AS13100 standard on Purchase Order terms, but also ensure suppliers and sub-tier suppliers are compliant with the appropriate elements of AS13100.
  • The industry will be reviewing this stance as time progresses and may impose certification at a date in the future, but there are currently no Accreditation Body certification which is required before any company certification can be performed.
  • Currently, all affected companies are required to be compliant with AS13100 on January 1, 2023
  • Requirement will be imposed via contractual language from customers and will be required to flowdown to all sub-tiers within the supply chain
  • Perform an onsite gap analysis of your current system to the AS13100 standard
  • Create and/or modify Quality Management System documentation to incorporate the required documents and records needed to show compliance to the standard (e.g, Process Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (PFMEAs), Advanced Product Quality Planning (APAP) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)).
