AS13100 Deployment Update

One of the first tools developed by AESQ to support the aero engine supply chain is Reference Manual (RM)13009 Compliance Assessment.  This document provides a structure for companies to begin to identify their current compliance to the new AS13100 standard including a 3-part Self-Assessment Checklist that can be used to document both compliance and any gaps that may exist needing addressing.  Prior to conducting the Self-Assessment, it is highly recommended that a company’s Quality Leaders follow the SAE AS13100™ Requirements Training Course (on-line/ 10 hours) and/or the soon to be released AESQ Quality Foundations Course to ensure complete understanding of the AS13100 requirements.


In addition, AESQ has developed a Milestone Plan to support AS13100 transition planning.  Please click the button below to review the Milestone Plan and other AS13100 Support Materials.
