There is no standardized Certificate of Conformance (CofC) requirement for aviation, space & defense industry. SAE IAQG developed some guidance and created a template detailing the minimum requirements.

Some customers will state their CoC requirement in their technical data package. However, the most requirements are very similar.

ISO/IEC 17050-1:2004 is a related standard for general purpose CoC.

Below are the commendations for a minumum CoC requirement:

  • The name, address and phone number of the supplier
  • The identification of the product
  • Quantity delivered. For parts that are made from multiple die/mold, it is recommended to specify quantity for each cavity or tooling.
  • Any applicable reference standards or other normative documents in a precise, complete and clearly
  • The date of issue of the declaration
  • Signature, printed name and title or an equivalent marking of authorized person
  • Indicate any applicable waivers
  • A conformance statement
