The AS9100 quality standard provides suppliers with rigid requirements for creating and maintaining a comprehensive quality management system that helps ensure the provision of safe and reliable products to the aerospace and defense industry.

To achieve AS9100 certification, CAE USA was required to participate in a thorough review and audit process.  After providing a written application to describe its quality management system and processes, CAE USA was then subject to on-site auditor reviews and assessments. As an AS9100-certified organization, CAE USA will now participate in ongoing audits to ensure compliance and protocols are continually followed and improved.
