AS9100 is an internationally adopted and standardized Quality Management System (QMS) for the aerospace industry. It was released in October 1999 by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the European Association of Aerospace Industries (EAAI). AS9100 fully incorporates the entirety of ISO 9001, while adding requirements relating to quality and safety. Major aerospace manufacturers and suppliers worldwide require compliance and/or registration to AS9100 as a condition of doing business with them.
WGS has successfully maintained its ISO 9001:2015 certification since 2016, launching their PACE (Pursuit of Agility and Continuous Excellence) QMS program.
