- ISO standards
In addition, this International Standard provides requirements for alternative acceptance methods proposed by the supplier. Such alternative methods would be based upon establishing and implementing an internal prevention-based quality management system as a means of ensuring that all products conform to requirements specified by the contract and associated specifications and standards.
This International Standard, when cited in contract, is applicable to the supplier and extends to subcontractors or vendors. The quality plans are to be applied as specified in the contract documents, and deliverables may be submitted for acceptance if the requirements of this International Standard have been met.
