BS EN 9120:2005 includes ISO 9001:2000 quality management system requirements and specifies additional requirements for a quality management system for the aerospace industry applicable to stockist distributors. The additional aerospace requirements are shown in bold, italic text.
It is emphasized that the quality management system requirements specified in this standard are complementary (not alternative) to contractual and applicable law and regulatory requirements.
This Standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable regulatory requirements.
NOTE In this Standard, the term “product” applies only to the product intended for, or required by, a customer.
All requirements of this Standard are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size and product provided.
Where any requirement(s) of this Standard cannot be applied due to the nature of an organization and its product, this can be considered for exclusion.
Where exclusions are made, claims of conformity to this Standard are not acceptable unless these exclusions are limited to requirements within Clause 7, and such exclusions do not affect the organization's ability, or responsibility, to provide product that meets customer and applicable regulatory requirements.
This standard is for use by organizations that procure parts, materials and assemblies and sells these products to a customer in the aerospace industry. This includes organizations that procure products and split them into smaller quantities. This standard is not intended for organizations that rework or repair products. Organizations that perform work that affect or could affect product characteristics or conformity shall use EN 9100 or another quality management system standard.
The following ISO 9001:2000 clauses are excluded in their entirety for purposes of the EN 9120 requirements for stockist distributors: 7.1, 7.3, and 7.5.2.
