The German Aerospace Center (DLR) uses national and international accepted legislations, norms and standards in all various fields of research. During the design and operation of our research equipment, we are compliant with the current national and European directives and laws. If necessary, we reflect these through internal standards.
Depending on the customer and topic, various requirements in the form of legal regulations, norms and standards must be implemented in the project. For multinational projects, international specifications are also taken into account, such as ISO, ECSS, MIL, etc. Because of the diversity in the provision of conformity, product assurance is decentralized inside DLR and is the responsibility of the institutes and institutions.
The Product Assurance Coordination is a consultant specialized in product assurance and has a solid know-how in project management and quality management. It supports quality manager as well as project managers and employees of the institutes and facilities in their work. The researchers and scientists can build and carry out their tests, experiments and research products with a defined quality level.
