AS9100 Rev D does not specifically address a business continuity plan, in general this is covered in ISO 22301, Societal security – Business continuity management systems – Requirements. Business continuity management is about the plans in place to ensure that if a disaster or major problem occurs your business can still function. This is not included in the AS9100 standard, which is why it has not been addressed in any AS9100 certification audits. Often Iso 22301 is partnered with IT management per ISO 27001 as IT catastrophes can lead to business continuity problems.

By comparison, contingency planning is having a plan in place for a disruption, often less catastrophic than the disasters mentioned above. Having a plan to address your factory being destroyed by an earthquake is business continuity planning, having a back-up supplier in case you have a disrupted supply chain is contingency planning.
