OASIS Database Update for 2009

The Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS) is a reliable resource for aerospace supplier certification and registration data.

Published: Tuesday, May 26, 2009 - 13:14

Many of us in the aerospace community have come to know the value of data in the Online Aerospace Supplier Information System (OASIS), a reliable resource for aerospace supplier certification and registration data housed and maintained by SAE International. The OASIS database is available to everybody at www.sae.org/oasis. You have to register to have access to it, but it is free. The OASIS database includes the accreditation bodies approved for the process, the certification bodies accredited for the scheme, all of the auditors approved for the aerospace scheme and, finally, the certified suppliers. The database contains information about the certified suppliers registered to the aerospace standards AS9100, AS9110, and AS9120.

There are some new changes being implemented in the OASIS database in 2009. Here are some of the key items noted from the OASIS web site:

  • If the status of a certification body’s accreditations is changed to “Withdrawn/Expired,” OASIS will automatically change the status of all the “Certified” supplier certificates to “CB Withdrawn/Expired,” for the certificates issued by that certification body (CB) and identified as the “latest certificate” for that supplier.
  • Users will be able to give feedback directly to a certification body without first finding the supplier in the Certified Supplier Directory.
  • When a user is giving feedback to a certification body about a specific selected supplier in the Certified Supplier Directory, a courtesy copy to the supplier will no longer be required.
  • When entering recertification audit data into the OASIS database, certification bodies can now select if each site in the assessment was “assessed.”
  • The administrator doing the data entry for a CB will now get a copy of the outgoing e-mails to the supplier administrator when requesting a new supplier setup.
  • The certification body listing in the Data Search section of OASIS will now include the status for each family of standards (AS9100, AS9110, and AS9120) on the main page.


These changes will make information viewed or entered in OASIS a bit more user-friendly. Given the changes to the AS9100 standard, there will be more changes to come in 2009. Please refer directly to the web site as the changes can be easily viewed on the updated communication link.
