The Allied Quality Assurance Publications (AQAP) are standards for quality assurance systems developed by NATO. AQAP-2110 is applied as a requirement for quality assurance for all defense products and services. Contents of the requirement include quality and risk management, configuration management, traceability, competences and evidence requirements for contractual activities. AQAP describes the requirements concerning the definition and implementation of a quality management system at the organisational level.
Public contracts in the military sector make reference to the standards described here.
ATM applies AQAP-2110 (3rd edition November 2009). Regular auditing and certification ensure that ATM has performed the target-oriented further development of processes and competences.
