The Change to “IA9100”

The IAQG is moving to one SDO – Standards Development Organization.

  • Previously each sector; the Americas, Europe, Asia had their own rules for review, additions, approval and publication.
  • Administration has been difficult. Translation has been one of the key issues but will now be part of the “workflow process”.
  • With the move to one SDO, response time with be faster with more visibility and one defined process.
  • A Coordination Draft is scheduled for release in November.
  • IF everything stays on schedule there would be a Release Ballot in June 2024 and potential release late 2024 but more likely 2025.
  • Consideration of Climate Change in the Clauses 4.1/4.2, Context of the Organization.
  • Stronger link to AS9145/APQP: Advanced Product Quality Planning.

  • AS9100 Clause 8.1.4 Prevention of Counterfeit Parts NOTES are now being considered as SHALL’s.
  • Ethical Behavior: focus on the importance of Leadership to ensure a strong culture is in place.
  • FOD Prevention: adding a requirement, not just a NOTE, in clause 8.1 for Operational Planning and Control.
