AS9110 (Aerospace Management System for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Stations) is based on AS9100 and adds specific requirements that are significant for the maintenance of commercial, private and military aircrafts. Certification of an MRO supplier to AS9110 is intended to provide an additional layer of control, but not act as a replacement for regulatory oversight or customer monitoring. An FAA repair station is an example of an organization that could seek to achieve AS9110 certification.
