Publication of UNE-EN 9100:2018 - Quality management systems. Requirements for aviation, space, and defence organisations


​La Asociación Española de Normalización, UNE, acaba de publicar la norma UNE-EN 9100:2018, a new version that rescinds and substitutes the previous standard UNE-EN 9100:2010.

The main changes with respect to the previous version are those derived from adapting the text of the standard UNE-EN 9100:2018 “Quality management systems. Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defence Organisations” to the quality management system requirements of UNE-EN ISO 9001:2015, as well as detailing the requirements, definitions, and additional notes specific to the aviation, space and defence industry.

The standard UNE-EN ISO 9100:2018 can be used at all levels of the supply chain, anywhere in the world, and is addressed at organisations that design, develop, or produce services within the aviation, space, and defence sector, and by organisations that provide a post-delivery service. Nonetheless, two specific complementary standards have also been developed for companies who perform maintenance tasks and those that carry out distribution activities, UNE-EN 9110:2018 “Quality management systems. Requirements for aeronautical maintenance organisations", and UNE-EN 9120:2018 “Aerospace material. Quality Management Systems. Requirements for aviation, space and defence distributors.”

Lastly, to complete the package, a further standard has been published: UNE-EN 9101:2018 “Quality management systems. Audit requirements for Aviation, Space and Defence Organisations”, which establishes the requirements for auditing quality management systems and drawing up the necessary reports.
