Was Just told we could ONLY buy material for AS9100 customers if the DISTRIBUTION house is AS9100 / AS9120

#1
Was just told by a distribution company selling AMS 5643 material that we MUST buy it from an AS certified company. They are referring to AS 6279 as the driver. Any experience?

Generally I look for the thread that pulls from the low level spec ( as in must follow xxx) or from the highest level spec (AS9100) and not finding it in either place.

I don't have a copy of the SAE AS6279 document, but the summary available from the SAE website reads as below:

In my experience, when I participated in the AAQSC, an SAE document would NEVER have a requirement like the one you mentioned, but things might have changed. It is a fact, though, that some OEMs mandate supplier certification to AS91X0 standards as a requirement to do business with.

Check with your customer (which should have been done during contract review) or check with other suppliers on their requirement. This is a new one to me.
