PRI (Performance Review Institute) Registrar is providing auditing services to support supplier conformity to SAE AS13100. This aerospace quality standard was developed by the SAE G-22 Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Standards Committee for the aero engine supply chain.
The standard includes AS9100 requirements, and additional quality requirements and techniques such as Global 8D problem solving methods, Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), First Article Inspection (FAI), human factors, and other quality practices to manage critical engine component manufacturing.
The leading aerospace OEMS which comprise AESQ 1 require their suppliers to conform to this standard by January 1, 2023 and has provided materials and Supplier Forums to support their efforts.
PRI Registrar auditors have deep experience of the aerospace industry and AS13100 training. They will provide valuable gap audits at the beginning of the implementation process, and conformity audits once the supplier has implemented all AS13100 requirements.
Randy Daugharthy, Director, PRI Registrar, said: “Based on the pilots conducted so far, it’s clear that suppliers will greatly benefit from the audits conducted by our experienced auditors. We look forward to supporting engine suppliers in meeting this important requirement deadline and on-going conformance.”
