Identification Traceability Procedure AS9100
The Identification Traceability Procedure AS9100 outlines the methods and responsibilities for identifying the status and tracking the outputs with respect to monitoring and measurement requirements throughout production and service provisions and maintaining a sequential record of its production (manufacture, assembly, inspection/verification) to be retrievable.
NOTE: Traceability is an aerospace safety requirement. (6 pages, 1283 words)
Identification Traceability AS9100 Responsibilities
Receiving is responsible for identifying raw materials, parts, components, etc., as they are delivered to the Company, confirming completeness and initial acceptability of incoming orders, and moving inspected items to appropriate areas.
Manufacturing (Processing) is responsible for maintaining parts, components, materials, and finished product identification through final processing and packaging.
Quality is responsible for maintenance of identification and traceability records, where required.
Identification Traceability AS9100 Definitions
Finished product – Product that will undergo no further processing or transformation within the Company.
Material – Elements, constituents, or substances of which something is composed or can be made (including, but not limited to: raw and processed material: parts: components; assemblies: fuels: and other items which may be worked into a more finished form in performance of a contract).
Traceability – Ability to trace all products manufactured from the same batch of raw material, or from the same manufacturing batch, to the destination (e.g., delivery, scrap, path, history, application, or location of something–document, work product, component, part, subassembly, etc.) by means of recorded information throughout the product life.

- ISO 10007:20017 “Quality Management Systems – Guidelines for Configuration Management”. ISO 10007 gives guidance on the use of configuration management within an organization. It applies to the support of products from concept to disposal. Note: Since ISO 10007 is a guidance document and not an ISO standard, it is not for certification/registration purposes.
- ISO 21849:2006, “Aircraft and Space – Industrial Data – Product Identification and Traceability”. ISO 21849 specifies the requirements for a product identification and traceability schema for life cycle management of aircraft and space products and parts. It specifies the minimum essential identification information needed for traceability of a product for its life cycle.
