The AS9110B standard coordinates its updates with ISO 9001, which continuously improve to keep pace with industry requirements.

This is the old revision AS9110B integrated with ISO 9001:2015.
Though standards undergo changes from time to time to keep up with updates within a particular industry, the primary driver for this revision was to address European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) feedback to assist in the recognition of the standard by National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s).
Changes to the AS9110B quality system standard for aviation maintenance include the following:
Added the following to the Terms and Definitions section:
- Certified Personnel
- Certifying Staff
Added additional requirements to clause 4.2.3 for the control of documentation
Expanded the scope of the Management Representative in clause 5.5.2 to include safety related issues
Added product safety to the required Management Review inputs in clause 5.6.2
Added requirements to clause 6.4 to address human factors and performance.
Added clarification to clause 7.1.4 requiring the transfer of work in an acceptable manner to the relevant customers and authorities
Added clarification to clause 7.2.2 to clarify expectations regarding the revision level of technical data
Added content to clause 7.3 to further clarify application of this clause
Modified text/content associated with clause 184.108.40.206 clarifying expectations
Added text/content to clause 220.127.116.11 clarifying expectations to be specific to maintenance that was performed
Added requirement to clause 7.5.2 that special processes comply with the requirements of the applicable technical data issued by the design approval holder
Added requirement to clause 7.6 to clarify expectations tying together the selection of monitoring and measuring equipment/method of calibration/verification to applicable technical data
Added requirement to clause 8.2.1 tying together improvement plans and the organization’s safety policy and safety objectives
Modified requirement to clause 8.2.3 to expand expectations to include any impacts to safety or reliability
Added requirements to clause 8.2.4 to clarify expectations and tying together sampling inspection and technical data/instructions provided by the design approval holder
Added requirement to clause 8.3 requiring authorization from the customer prior to scrapping their property
Though the changes to the AS9110B standard are numerous, none of them are so monumental that they should cause great concern. That said, your auditor will be looking for inclusion of these changes in your AS9110 quality system and objective evidence that your company meets the requirement or the intent of these changes.
