Rationale

This document has undergone full technical revision to reflect improvements introduced to the product

qualification process and incorporate identified best practices since its initial release.

This document defines the process by which a manufacturer wishing to manufacture aviation, space,

and defence standard products may obtain qualification approval from the controlling Certification

Authority (CA). It defines the procedures to be followed by a manufacturer to request, carry out, obtain,

and maintain certification approval by confirming the manufactured products meet the minimum

technical and performance requirements defined by the product standard and controlling technical

specifications.
Foreword

To assure customer satisfaction, the aviation, space, and defence industry organizations must produce

and continually improve safe, reliable products that meet or exceed customer and regulatory authority

requirements. The globalization of the industry and the complexity of resulting organizations’ supply

chains have complicated this objective. End-product organizations face the challenge of assuring the

quality of, and integrating, product purchased from suppliers throughout the world and at all levels

within the supply chain. Furthermore, the aviation, space, and defence suppliers and processors, within

the industry, face the challenge of delivering product to multiple customers having varying quality

expectations and requirements.

The aviation, space, and defence industry established the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG)

for the purpose of achieving significant improvements in quality and safety, and reductions in cost,

throughout the value stream. This organization includes representation from aviation, space, and

defence companies in the Americas, Asia/Pacific, and Europe. This document defines the qualification of

standard products and should result in improved quality and safety, and decreased cost, due to the

standardization of this process.

1 Scope
1.1 General

This document defines a system for the qualification of standard products for aviation, space, and

defenc applications. It defines the principles that shall be adhered to when carrying out product

qualification; applied in conjunction with the rules and procedures of the CA. The system enables the CA

to confirm compliance is achieved and maintained, in accordance with the requirements of its product

definition and associated controlling technical specifications by an Original Component Manufacturer

(OCM) of standard products.

This document requires an OCM that has been granted product qualification approval to ensure

applicable approvals are maintained and renewed in accordance with the CA’s quality system for that

qualified product.

OCMs and OCM designated Value Added Distributors (VADs) requesting product qualification to this

standard, shall as a prerequisite, maintain EN 9100 standard quality management system certification

approval. This certification shall be visible in the Online Aerospace Supplier Information System

(OASIS) database.
1.2 Application

The application of this document will be mandated either in the product standard or its controlling

technical specifications. When invoked, the OCM wanting to produce aerospace standard products will

need to gain qualification approval from an aerospace CA. The processes defined herein will be

performed impartially for the benefit of the aerospace industry, by the CA, to ensure continued

compliance of standard products to the requirements defined in their controlling technical

specifications.

OCMs will need to ensure they allow sufficient lead-time to complete this process to gain product

approval from the CA to support/satisfy their customer delivery requirements. Qualified products using

this process shall not be supplied or used without qualification approval and a valid Product

Qualification Certificate (PQC) being granted.
