AESQ Supplier Forum - AS13100 Overview (AS13100 Common Questions)



Is there going to be a common set of customer (AESQ companies) specific requirements for AS9145 PPAP?

There will be a common set of requirements, but there may be some customer specific requirements remaining.

What is the process for AS13100 certification?

AS13100 is not a certifiable standard. Compliance will be assured through self-auditing, annual reporting plus customer audit (2nd party) as required today.

Will AS13100 replace AS9100?

No, AS13100 is supplementary to the requirements of AS9100.

We do not supply the engine makers directly – will this standard be flowed down to use?

Yes, it is applicable to the entire aero engine supply chain.

For Quality Auditor Training, will the AS13100 requirements course suffice?

In AS13100, certification of Lead Auditors requires both an Aerospace Lead Auditor training course (e.g. AS9100 Lead Auditor course) with documented content and examination as well as AS13100 familiarization which can be satisfied by the AESQ AS13100 Supplemental Quality Management System Requirements course, available at: or equivalent training.
