NSPA is hosting the NATO Working Group on Quality (AC/327 WG2) this week.

31 January 2018


The group members represent 22 nations, the NATO Airborne Early Warning (NAEW FC), the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), the Organisation conjointe de coopération en matière d'armement (OCCAR) and International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG). Participants will update Allied Quality Assurance Publications and coordinate Government Quality Assurance Services.

Additionally key NATO standards will be reviewed and updated including the AQAP2105 (Quality Plans), AQAP 2009 Annex F (Guidance on the use of NATO contractual Quality Assurance Requirements) and AQAP selection guidance (Acquirers’ Defence Organization guidance).

"This working is critical as a key logistics enabler for the support of both NATO and nationally owned and operated military equipment and the standards they agree are essential to enable NSPA support. The Agency play an active role in AC/327 WG2, by supporting the development/revision of standards and enabling a good cooperation with National Quality Assurance Authorities." explained Mr. Xavier PICCA, NSPA’s Quality Manager.
