Aerospace and Napcap standards

I have experience of doing internal audits to ukas and ISO standards, however I have just taken on a role of Quality Assurance lead and I think it’s probably a level up which in time will include both Aerospace and Napcap standards . With that in mind can u advise me of any guides or data that will be of benefit to me please

The aerospace community have taken the ISO 9001:2015 standard and added some aerospace specific requirements into it, releasing this document as the AS9100 Rev D standard (https://advisera.com/9100academy/what-is-as9100/) which forms the requirements for a quality management system for aircraft, space and defense organizations. This standard is audited using a process audit approach just as other ISO standards for management systems are. It should also be noted that there is a replacement QMS standard for 2 specific types of aerospace companies; aircraft repair and overhaul organizations (AS9110) and stockist distributors (AS9120). Both of these standards are also based on ISO 9001:2015 but have different additions than AS9100 which is more generic. Training for AS 9100 auditing can be obtained from many of the same organizations that train for ISO 9001 auditing.

NADCAP auditing, on the other hand, is not like process auditing of a management system. This is a compliance auditing against the specific requirements for a NADCAP process to certify that each and every detailed requirement is met in the process; step by step. For this type of auditing, you would need to contact a NADCAP certified training organization where they can train and certify you to do NADCAP auditing. This may only be necessary for a company that has NADCAP specific processes.
