Title of the standard: Inspection and Test Quality System.
Current edition: SAE 9003A 2012 Standard
Important Note: This new AS9003A-2012 Standard replaces the old AS 9003-2001 Standard. The content of the new standard is based on AS 9100 but has fewer sections and shall requirements. It is designed for organizations that are involved in the manufacture of noncritical products.
This new AS 9003A 2012 standard is designed to provide requirements and input for implementing an inspection and test quality system with less requirements then required by other aerospace standards such as the AS 9001. It’s relatively easy to comply with since many of the old standard requirements are required in the new standard except that the wording, title and numbering system has changed.
