Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Quality Management System Certification Programs
These requirements are applicable to IAQG global sectors when utilizing Aerospace Industry Controlled Other Party (ICOP) schemes for the assessment and certidication of supplier quality systems in accordance with the requirements AS/EN/SJAC 9104.
After the initial publication of International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) 9104 standard in 2004, it became evident that a single standard containing all aspects of the Industry Controlled Other Party (ICOP) Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS) was too complex. It was decided that the standard be broken into three sections:
9104/1 – Requirements for Aviation, Space, and Defense Quality Management System Certification Programs;
9104/2 – Requirements for Oversight of Aerospace Quality Management System Registration/Certification Programs; and
9104/3 – Requirements for Aerospace Auditor Competency and Training Courses.
The requirements for oversight and AQMS auditor qualification information (9104/2 and 9104/3 respectively) were removed from the original 9104 text. This effort necessitated the total rewrite of the initial standard, now re-designated as 9104/1, which is the keystone document of the 9104-series trilogy.
