The Standards Council of Canada’s Aerospace Quality Management Systems is recognized by the International Aerospace Quality Group to accredit certification bodies for AS9100, AS9110, and AS9120 AQMS certification.
The AS9100 series is the industry-recognized set of standards for quality assurance and risk management for organizations involved with the design, development, production, installation, and servicing in the aerospace sector. Many major aerospace, space, and defense manufacturers require that their entire supply chain be Aerospace Quality Management Systems certified.
As a pre-requisite, certification bodies must be accredited to ISO/IEC 17021-1 for ISO 9001 certification by SCC or another International Accreditation Forum (IAF) Multilateral Recognition Arrangement (MLA) signatory for at least one year prior to applying for AQMS accreditation.
