BENGALURU (PTI): Hindustan Aeronautics Limited has been conferred the prestigious membership of the Asia-Pacific Aerospace Quality Group (APAQG) under the category 'Full Member with voting rights'.

This makes India the seventh nation to join the APAQG under TRHE International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG).

The other nations of APAQG are China, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore and Japan, the company said in a release.

"HAL is now a part of Global Quality team dedicated to bring improvements in the Aerospace Quality. The company can participate in international forums and contribute to the development and revision of current and new quality Standards," HAL CMD T Suvarna Raju said.

"The membership enables HAL to have access to various Quality System Standards and other guidelines developed by IAQG," he added.

The IAQG is an international non-profit cooperative global organisation that brings aviation, space and defence companies together to deliver more value at all levels of the supply chain.

It establishes and maintains Quality Management System standards (9100 series) and controls the certification system.

The IAQG comprises Americas (AAQG), Europe (EAQG) and Asia-Pacific (APAQG) sectors.

To become a part of IAQG, HAL has to be a member of APAQG and then graduate to IAQG as a voting member by virtue of being an OEM in India, the company said.

HAL participated in the Council meeting recently held at Zhuhai, China and made a presentation to the APAQG members and the Council on the company's activities with thrust on quality management, it added.
