e-Learning: AQAP-2110 & AQAP-2310 – Understanding & implementing

Programme overview

AQAP-2110:2016 and AQAP-2310:2017 contain NATO’s (and the UK MOD's) quality assurance requirements for design, development and production –

  • AQAP-2110:2016 includes the (applicable) requirements of ISO 9001:2015
  • AQAP-2310:2017 includes the (applicable) requirements of AS9100:2016

Both of these AQAPs mandate that an effective and economical Quality Management System (QMS) be established, documented, applied, maintained, assessed & improved and evaluated, in accordance with all their requirements.

AQAP-2110 and AQAP-2310 contain minimum requirements which, if applied appropriately, provide confidence in a supplier organization’s capability to deliver products that conform to MOD and/or NATO Organizations (i.e. the Acquirer) contract requirements.
