AQAP 2110:2016 contains NATO’s quality assurance requirements for design, development and production – which includes the (applicable) requirements of ISO 9001:2015 as necessary to satisfy the contract requirements. It mandates that a QMS (Quality Management System) be established, documented, applied, maintained, assessed & improved and evaluated, in accordance with all these requirements.
AQAP-2110 contains minimum requirements which, if applied appropriately, provide confidence in the organization’s (i.e. the supplier) capability to deliver products that conform to Governmental and/or NATO Organisations (i.e. the Acquirer) contract requirements.
TEC’s unique 1-day orientation session is aimed at managers and staff who need to:
- understand the terminology
- interpret the requirements
- assess if existing QMS processes meet the requirements
- identify actions to address any shortcomings
The practical 1-day course is highly interactive and uses individual/team exercises, workshops and quizzes to achieve the above objectives.
The course timings are 08:30 – 17:00
