The requirements established in this document are applicable to the IAQG and associated sectors for managing oversight to established requirements contained in 9104-series standards (i.e., 9104/1, 9104/2, 9104/3). The requirements are applicable to IAQG working groups for oversight.
After the initial publication of International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) standard 9104 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 Certification/Registration Programs; and
- 9104/3 - Requirements for Aerospace Auditor Competency and Training Courses.
This document is written to define a robust shared oversight process to ensure conformance to established aviation, space, and defense industry 9100-series accreditation/certification requirements. The purpose of this revision is to align with the respective 9104/1 and 9104/3 standards and incorporate lessons learned from past oversight activities.
