What is SAE AS9101G?

AS9101G is a standard that defines requirements for conducting audits of quality management systems (QMS) in the aviation, space, and defense industries. It covers preparation, execution, reporting, and conformity assessment of audits to the 9100-series standards, the QMS documentation, and the customer and statutory/regulatory requirements. It outlines the necessary procedures and guidelines for ensuring quality and compliance within these critical sectors.

While AS9101G aligns with the 9100-series standards, it goes beyond the general requirements outlined by ISO/IEC 17021 for conformity assessment, auditing, and certification (learn more about ISO/IEC 17021).
