Quality Assurance (QA)

Quality Assurance and Safety Assurance are complementary and share similar tools.  QA is focused on compliance under prescriptive policy/rules and other requirements to meet Customer expectations and contractual obligations; while Safety Assurance is focused on Safety Performance.  The primary objective of any SMS is to identify safety-related hazards, assess the associated risk and implement effective risk controls.  In contrast, a QA focuses on the consistent delivery of products and services that meet relevant specifications.  Nonetheless, both Quality Assurance and Safety Assurance must:

  1.  Be planned and managed;
  2.  Depend upon measurement and monitoring of performance indicators;
  3.  Involve all organizational functions related to the delivery of aviation products and  services; and,
  4.  Strive for continuous improvement.
