This standard includes ISO 9001:2015 quality management system requirements and specifies additional requirements for a quality management system for the aerospace industry applicable to stockist distributors. This standard is for the use by organizations that procure parts, materials and assemblies and sells these products to a customer in the aerospace industry. This includes organizations that procure products and split them into smaller quantities. This standard is not intended for organizations that rework or repair products.
The ISO 9001:2015 standard is the replacement for the ISO 9001:2008 Standard for business. ISO standards are reviewed for suitability and effectiveness every 5-7 years and the last update was in 2008, as expected the new version offers substantial differences from the previous version of the standard. The new certification will be based on Annex SL that brings a common structure to all management systems (QMS, EMS, ISMS) in order to ensure uniformity, align varying management system standards, apply a universal language across all standards (sections, texts, terms, and definitions), improve the communication with senior management, make it easier for organizations to incorporate their quality management system and increase the importance given to risk and risk management.
