Welcome to the IAQG Dictionary

This dictionary provides the definitions of words, terms and abbreviations as defined in IAQG, AAQG, APAQG and/or EAQG documents. It is managed by the Operating Management System (OMS) Team on behalf of the IAQG. It is not intended to be the absolute authority of definition, but a guide to be utilized as a quick reference and starting point for investigation if further technical accuracy or precise current definition is required. This document does not attempt to define terms applicable generically to Quality and defers to other worldwide / industry standards (e.g. ISO 9000) & dictionaries for that purpose. When applicable, the definition is followed by listing of the document source. Questions regarding the dictionary or content can be referred to the IAQG OMS Team Dictionary Chair.
