During contract negotiations, BAAINBw uses the requirements laid down in AQAPs as contract elements to be agreed.

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:

  • AQAP 2110 contains the requirements specified in ISO 9001, supplemented by additional NATO requirements.
  • AQAP 2131 defines the procedures applicable to final inspections and tests. 
  • AQAP 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. 
  • AQAP 2210 supplements AQAPs 2110 and 2310 by software-specific quality assurance requirements. 
  • AQAP 2310 is specifically addressed to service providers (such as manufacturers, suppliers, and others) involved in particularly complex projects in the aviation, space and defense sectors. This standard contains the requirements specified in EN 9100, also supplemented by additional NATO requirements.
