Industry has established the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), with representatives from companies in the Americas, Asia/Pacific, and Europe, to implement initiatives that make significant improvements in quality and reductions in cost throughout the value stream. This standard EN 9137 has been developed under the auspices of the IAQG Defence Relationship Growth Strategy Stream and in collaboration with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) AC/327, Working Group 2 (WG 2) to provide guidance on how the requirements of AQAP 2110 and EN 9100 can be fulfilled by one common Quality Management System. This document has been prepared jointly by the IAQG and NATO, and the content of this standard is identical to AQAP 2009 Annex F from this point onwards. This is the initial release of EN 9137. This standard is intended to provide guidance and assist an organization in the use and understanding of the relationship between AQAP 2110 and EN 9100. Because of the multiplicity of conditions that can exist (dependent on such factors as the type of work or process, the devices used, and the skill of personnel involved), this guidance should not be considered as all-encompassing nor should it be considered as imposing specific means or methods for meeting contract requirements. Stakeholders should be aware that other means or methods could be used to meet these requirements. This standard EN 9137:2012 has been prepared by ASD-STAN, Technical Section Quality, for the IAQG sector Europe. The responsible German standardization committee is Working Committee NA 131-05-01 AA "Grundlagen und Managementverfahren" ("Basic principles of management processes") of the Aerospace Standards Committee at DIN. The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) declared the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD-STAN) responsible for the preparation of European standards (EN) for the field of aerospace. ASD became the associated body (ASB) of CEN by the agreement dated 1986-10-03.
