SAE International’s G-14 Americas Aerospace Quality Standards Committee (AAQSC) has published new technical standard AS9117: Delegated Product Release Verification.
AS9117 specifies the requirements for Delegated Product Release Verification (DPRV) to establish common product/service requirements for use across all levels of the supply chain.
The process for DPRV varies across organizations. Implementation of a standard process reduces the risk of escapes in the aviation, space, and defence industry supply chain, when the organization’s product release verification has been delegated to a supplier.
AS9117 will apply when an organization elects to delegate product release verification by contractual flow down to their supplier to perform product acceptance on their behalf.

The SAE G-14 Americas Aerospace Quality Standards Committee addresses all facets of aerospace quality, including design, maintenance, and in-service experience. The group is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for aerospace quality systems.
The SAE G-22 Aero Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Committee has been established as a technical committee under the SAE Aerospace Council to develop, specify, maintain, and promote quality standards specific to the aero engine supply chain. The committee is currently revising the standard “AS13001 Supplier Self Release Training Requirements” to fully align with the terminology used in AS9117 terminology.
SAE International’s G-14 and G-22 committees, and by extension the IAQG and AESQ Strategy Group – an SAE ITC Participant Group, have committed to work together to achieve alignment on other technical standards.
