AS9120 Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Distributors
This standard was developed for those organizations that are distributors (procure
parts, materials, assemblies and resells these products) to the Aviation, Space
and Defense industries. Its usage is intended to impact quality, schedule, and cost
performance by eliminating requirements unique to organizations and introducing
the application of best practices.
AS9120 includes an increased emphasis on On-Time and On-Quality Delivery (OTOQD)
performance, configuration management, supplier management, purchase process, preservation
of product, and formal monitoring of customer satisfaction data. Not all of the
changes in the AS9100 series are reflected in this standard; however the changes
made to AS9101 Quality Management
System Assessment auditing does apply.
