What is the difference between AS9100 and AS9120

The company I work for is currently AS9120 certified.
I came across the AS9100 in passing, and wanted to know what the difference between the two is?
Right now, we distribute new parts for DoD and Commercial Aerospace companies.
However, we do repair items on site as well. Not sure if they are considered AS9100 worthy, as the items we repair never go in the air. The repair items are ground power units that feed the planes power while on the tarmack.
What is the rule?
· Any item that touches
· Item goes that actually goes airborne?

Your help is appreciated.

The difference in the standards is the type of organization the Quality Management System requirements are intended for:
AS9100 – Requirements for Aviation, Space and Defense Organizations
AS9110 – Aerospace – Requirements for Maintenance Organizations
AS9120 – Aerospace Requirements for Stockist Distributors
So, from your comments it sounds like you are a distributor who is registered to AS9120 currently but is wondering about your repair facilities. If this is a repair and overhaul function, as opposed to a repair when there is defect function, then this would fall under AS9110 as it is a maintenance organisation. AS9100 is intended for organisation which produce new parts as opposed to those who do either repair and overhaul or distribution.
I hope this answers your questions, please let me know if there is anything further you need.
