The At-PQC™ tailored ISO 9001 quality system is proven in industry to enable Suppliers to qualify for and continue to contract with DLA.

Hold On…!

As of May 15, 2018, DLA requires some Suppliers to upgrade from ISO 9001 to AS9003. Click here to browse slides from DLA’s Briefing.

Its been 5 years (November 1, 2013) since DLA decided that quality systems complying with MIL-I-45208 are no longer acceptable when solicitations mandate “Higher Level Quality FAR 52.246-11”. Read the notice, DLA Replaces MIL-I-45208 with ISO 9001 for compliance with FAR 52.246-11 Higher Level Quality.

Rich from Discovery Corporation reports:

“Two months after starting my quality improvement project, two QAR’s visited my facility for 2 days and approved my tailored ISO 9001 quality system. I am a one-person machine shop that can now walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk after updating my MIL-I-45208A inspection system. Four years later, DLA tells me I must be compliant with AS9003, so I updated to keep up with the times.”

Your Company is fully compliant with DLA’s “Tailored QMS” if you already have an ISO 9001 pedigree (unless your contract is changed to require ISO 9001 tailored to meed SAE AS9003).

Regardless of your QMS pedigree status, there are some flowdowns to add to your purchase order template if your Company is a non-manufacturer.

In practice, the Tailored ISO 9001 quality system is about 70% compliant with the ISO 9001:2008 standard. A business can save a significant amount of work on its QMS by using the tailored kit during its transition from the aging MIL-I-45208 system to a modern ISO 9001 QMS.

FYI: DLA continually adjusts its quality requirements according to the complexity of the product/service that is provided. Some contracts now require Suppliers to update ISO 9001 to AS9003 and some still require a tailored ISO 9001 quality system or full compliance with the 2008 or 2015 versions of ISO 9001.
