Standards, testing, certification and training

  • Aerospace standards and compliance at a glance

With over 3,000 standards and a range of aerospace solutions it can be overwhelming to know where to start. To help you navigate your way, BSI has developed an aerospace standards and solutions matrix. Standards have long been setting the bar for excellence in the aerospace industry from quality management in the supply chain, to health and safety, environmental management, information and cybersecurity, emissions verification, and infrastructure and facilities management.

You can access our extensive portfolio of British, European and International (ISO) standards through the BSI shop or through our online subscription portal BSOL. Whether you need a single standard, access to a collection of standards or want to benefit from the value of full membership our vast library of standards can help you turn excellence into a habit and take your business to the next level.

Test, audit and certify to leading aerospace standards such as AS/EN 9100 series (Aviation, Space and Defence Quality Management), ISO 9001 (Quality Management) as well as ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and ISO 270001 (Information Security Management) to mitigate the risks of failure in the supply chain, increase customer trust, gain access to global markets and make your organization more resilient.

Our suite of aerospace supply chain management (SCM) services and software provide an end-to-end solution for managing quality, mitigating risk, enhancing productivity and promoting safety. Audit a supplier, manage supplier compliance, mitigate supply chain risk, or access our audit-approved supplier database. 

Turn our expertise into your experience with BSI training courses to help you understand, implement and audit standards, including AS/EN 9100 series (Aviation, Space and Defence Quality Management), ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) and many more.

How we’ve helped clients in aerospace

  • Our business continuity management system made it much easier to respond to the pandemic, even though our teams were working remotely. It enabled better collaboration and support between our operations teams, which in turn improved stakeholder engagement and confidence.

    Ioannis Metsovitis, Senior Vice President Operations

  • “Standards are vital to grow our business as they provide our customers with the comfort that we have the necessary processes in place to maintain quality standards, manage IS and business continuity risks, and demonstrate organizational resilience. I would certainly encourage other firms to make the same journey.”
