Can I Implement AS9100 in 1 Department only?

My source inspector mentioned that if my employer implemented & registered to AS9100 for this one product we make, that we could open the door for more business.

Is it acceptable to only implement AS9100 in 1 department and leave the rest of the company ISO 9001? I realize that thee will be some crossover and shared clauses: doc control, sales, purchasing, etc., but the actual corner of the room/department where the product is made - can that be AS9100 registered? :confused:

You can limit the scope of the registration to one product line. However, there still has to be a complete QMS that is auditable to all of the AS9100 requirements. Shared resources and management would be audited to AS9100 as it relates to that product line. The quality management system scope would need to define what parts of the system comply with AS9100 and what parts comply with only ISO 9001 requirements.

Not in "1 department", but as a limited scope, which includes all the processes of your ISO 9001 based system. You could then have 2 certificates (an AS9100 and an ISO 9001) with different scopes. Not sure - quantitatively - your "source inspector" is going on facts or just a swag...

The other factor here is if you company is mature enough to work in the aerospace, space and defense (AS&D) industry. There is a very big paradigm shift needed to move from commercial (ISO 9001) to the more stringent AS&D (AS9100) requirements.

On top of what Howste mentioned, please note that you would have to deal with all the additional baggage related to AS9100 certification, such as higher prices, limited availability of auditors and dates, compressed transition timeframe, etc.
Unless you have a real customer demand for ICOP AS9100 certification, it would be hard to justify the move.
