This Aerospace Standard establishes the minimum requirements necessary for NADCAP accreditation of a General Quality System the meets, at a minimum, MIL-Q-9858. These requirements may be supplemented by additional requirements at the discretion of the NADCAP General Quality Systems Task Group. It is the intent of this standard to provide a harmonized quality standard that meets MIL-Q-9858, MIL-STD-45662, and the relevant portions of MIL-STD-1520. In addition to meeting these requirements as a minimum, an attempt has been made to harmonize the requirements of MIL-Q and the ISO9000 series of standards. Where similar requirements existed between these two standards, the more stringent requirement was imposed.
This standard establishes rules for the implementation of the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program (NADCAP) to accredit the capability of suppliers furnishing processes, products, and services for the aerospace and defense industries as provided for in specific programs. These rules shall be in compliance with the latest issue of Aerospace Standard AS7003.
