What are the "Must Have" Specs and Standards for AS9100 Certification

I have just been tasked with transforming our company into a AS9100 certified company. I have transformed this company from an old Mil-I-45208 into an ISO 9002/9001 company successfully years ago but have been thrown back into the fire. I have the AS9100 spec but my question is, what other specs do you feel are an absolute must to have, which ones are a good help but aren't a must and what one's are basically useless?

This is for a manufacturing company that is strictly build to print.

AS9104?
ISO10007?
ect??

I have a good grasp of what needs to be done for our company to become certified but I still would like to hear from others as sometimes I have a issue of overlooking the obvious and looking to deep into things.

Thanks.

It would be a good idea to get a copy of AS9101. The documents you need should be referenced in your customer's documents. I would also refer to the Supply Chain Management Handbook which can be found on the IAQG site.

Thank you for the responses. We already have the AS9100C spec and the AS9102 FAIR spec as we have been providing to our customers FAIR's to that spec for 10+ years.

AS9101, ISO 10007 & ISO 9000-2005 are on my lists of specs to purchase. I plan on purchasing all the specs that are referenced in the AS9100 spec. I am looking for others that are not referenced in that spec but are helpful. ISO 31000 is one I will look into also.

Thanks again and any more recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Rob1899 - I have been working in the aerospace industry for more than 30 years now. I am just starting to get into medical devices. Anyway, I started working for the Air Force many moons ago, and I worked in a contrractor's facility that supplied Radar, Sonar, and Communications equipment and systems. :topic:Sorry, sometimes I can get wordy. Anyway, I started working as a QAS where Mil-I-45208 was, on some contracts, but there were others that had Mil-Q-9858A on contract. Well, over time, they all went to ISO9001, and AS9100. Well, I searched and searched, but could not find a "free" audit checklist to use at various contractor facilities that I performed oversite for, for the Department of Defense, for either ISO9001 or AS9100C. :nope: So, I made one. I am going to attach the one I made up for AS9100C. Because I made it, I can give it to you for "Free", to use any way you want to. :agree: I do not think we should have to "reinvent the wheel" over, and over, and over again. :2cents: I made it, formatted it, so you can print it out to carry with you, to go out on the floor to do audits. I also made it so you can print out "only" specific chapters, if you want to, so you can carry them with you, to do partial audits, over time. In addition, I made it so you can also keep an "electronic copy" on your computer, for file, which you can fill in after you come back from the floor. The other "Specifications", that others have been suggesting to you, are good to have, but now you will "not" have to make up a checklist to go out and do your audits, and "reinvent the wheel". :applause: You take care, and remember to keep having fun with your work. If it's not fun, you should be doing something else. :agree1: - Gov't Guy

After reviewing your checklist... You are re-inventing the wheel.

Note: Most auditors will write you up on your internal checklist as it is considered your own works unless it matches the existing OER.
