    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"?


    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.
