The International Aerospace Quality Group developed the globally harmonized industry controlled other party (ICOP) scheme. The goal of the ICOP scheme is to improve aerospace quality management system (AQMS) performance and increase stakeholder confidence. The scheme will use competent aerospace auditors with sufficient audit time to conduct a value-added audit and provide a comprehensive audit report to the industry that reflects the current AQMS health of a certified aviation space and defense organization.
