    We have chosen to model our QMS after AS9100C and feel we meet the intent of the specification; however, we are being audited by the government for strict compliance to AS9100C. Is there an interpretation somewhere that more clearly defines "meet the intent of" versus "comply with"?


    Answer

    Definition of Comply: This means to act in accordance with your obligations, to yield or to carry into effect or to accommodate something.

    From Black’s Law Dictionary

    Definition of Intent: The purpose in carrying out a particular act

    From Rocket Lawyer Legal Dictionary

    I recommend you contact your lawyer and ask their legal opinion as to the difference between compliance and meets the intent.
