AQAP-2110 & AQAP-2310 – Management orientation session

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

These AQAPs mandate that a QMS (Quality Management System) be established, documented, applied, maintained, assessed & improved and evaluated, in accordance with all their requirements.

Compliance with AQAP-2110 or AQAP-2310 is vitally important for organizations wanting to bid for MOD or NATO contracts

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 Organisations (i.e. the Acquirer) contract requirements.

TEC’s unique 1-day orientation session is aimed at top management and other managers 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.

Our public course includes a 5-course Lunch(!) with ample time for networking and discussions.

The course timings are 08:30 – 17:00

This course is part of TEC’s comprehensive AQAP training programme which includes twelve empowerment courses
