(IA) Quality Standards

International Aerospace Quality Standards "IA"

The "IA" standards are a collection of global aerospace quality documents published by the IAQG Standards Council developed through a partnership between the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) and SAE International. The IA standards are developed by global subject matter experts to implement initiatives that make significant improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the value stream. Widely accepted by the global aerospace industry and used in other high-reliability sectors, this collection of aerospace quality standards provides tools for continuous improvement to help manufacturers and suppliers remain compliant and deliver the quality that customers demand. This agreement will take effect on all new and newly revised standards moving forward.

Standard Naming

The naming structure for new IA standards will follow the standard naming prefix of IA (for International Aerospace). Previously released standards (including the AS9100 series) will transition from sector designations of AS, EN, SJAC or JISQ to the new singular IA designation at the time of revision.
