Requirements for Certification of Aviation, Space, and Defense Quality Management Systems
This standard defines the industry-accepted requirements for the ICOP scheme, which provides confidence to ASD customers, that organizations with certification of their QMS, issued by accredited CBs, meet applicable AQMS standard requirements. The requirements in this standard are applicable to all participants in the ICOP scheme. If there is a conflict between the requirements of this standard, and customer or applicable statutory/regulatory requirements, the latter shall take precedence.
In early 2000, the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) developed the Industry Controlled Other Party (ICOP) scheme to support the certification of Aviation, Space, and Defense (ASD) organization’s Aerospace Quality Management System (AQMS). The scheme was built upon the existing International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) requirements for certification of an organization’s Quality Management System (QMS).
The ICOP scheme and ISO/IEC requirements have changed over time, this revision incorporates those changes and strengthens the alignment between industry and current IAF requirements. Furthermore, this standard was revised to align with the latest revisions to the other ICOP scheme requirements documents.
