Depending on the quality risk identified and the complexity of the contract item, different AQAPs are used which govern different subject matters. Find a brief overview below:

  • AQAPAllied Quality Assurance Publications 2110 contains the requirements specified in ISO 9001, supplemented by additional NATO requirements.
  • AQAPAllied Quality Assurance Publications 2131 defines the procedures applicable to final inspections and tests. 
  • AQAPAllied Quality Assurance Publications 2105 usually forms part of a separate contract. It contains the requirements for a contract-related deliverable quality plan to be supplied by the contractor.
