Virtual Workshop: Aerospace Updates and Introduction to APQP

02 October 2020

We are hosting a virtual workshop event to share industry scheme updates and give you an introduction to APQP.


Date: Friday 2nd October 2020
Time: 1pm BST / 8am EST
Location: GoToWebinar

NQA are proud to be members of a number of forums and standards writing committees within the aerospace sector. By being involved in these committees we are able to get involved at an early stage of standard evolution, to not only give our input but to understand the requirements before our competitors. This knowledge is only useful if we can transfer this to our clients, consultants and to the wider aerospace supply chain.

So with this in mind, join us for this free event designed specifically around the Aerospace Scheme series of standards (AS91XX) that will give you insight into forthcoming changes and also provide some detailed analysis of industry findings which may shed some light on your own management system controls. We will also give you an overview of a new standard that's been gaining interest: AS9145 APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) and how this standard can potentially support your business.

The virtual session will include:

There are a number of changes coming up in the next 12-24 months that will impact all organisations who are certified to AS9100, AS9120 or AS9110 standards, depending on the organisation itself some of these changes can be significant. We will provide you insight into changes such as the site structure changes and the new audit calculations and how you could possibly get more or less time added to your assessments.

It's important to us that if you are going to take time out of your busy schedules you should benefit from that time spent with us. To summarise the event will include:

    • AS91XX series NCR Technical Analysis
