This Standard defines the quality assurance (QA) requirements for the establishment and implementation of a Quality Assurance
programme for products of space projects. Discipline related qualification activities are complemented in standards specific to those
disciplines (e.g. ECSS-E-ST-32-01 for fracture control).
For software quality assurance, the software product assurance standard, ECSS-Q-ST-80 is applicable.
This Standard is applicable to all space projects.
This standard may be tailored for the specific characteristic and constrains of a space project in conformance with ECSS-S-ST-00.
For the tailoring of this standard the following information is provided:
- A table providing the pre-tailoring per "Product types" in clause 6
- A table providing the pre-tailoring per "Project phase" in Annex J
