AAAM 44.9:AE — Aerospace

In addition to the basic specifications for general application of advanced metrology, the American Association of Advanced Metrology offers a specific endorsement for testing laboratories, agencies, institutions, manufacturers and other practitioners to apply advanced metrological technologies to the inspection of aerospace parts — apart from jet turbine engine parts, which are a separate endorsement.

AAAM 44.9 certification with Aerospace endorsement (AAAM 44.9:AE) is conferred on candidate laboratories that can demonstrate, via Gauge R&R and the tiered application process, the ability to perform measurements and data analysis of at least the minimum accuracy required by the quality and safety standards prevalent in the aerospace industry.

To that end, the AAAM 44.9:AE non-turbine engine aerospace certification has the additional prerequisite of AS9100 certification.  Since AS9100 encompasses all features of ISO 9000, ISO 9000 is not required of applicants that can provide documentation of AS9100 certification.
