Project Quality Plan (PQP) is normally required for criticality “1” packages.
It is based on ISO 10000 5 Quality management — Guidelines for quality plans.
It would have the same requirements as ISO 9001 QMS but intended for implementation at project level.
Project Quality Plan (PQP typically includes:

- Inspection and testing (reflected within package Inspection and Test Plan)
- Control of inspection, measuring and test equipment (Calibration program includes calibration procedures, register, test reports & certificates)
- Inspection and test status (Test reports, mill test report, test records)
- Control of nonconforming product (NCR Procedure, register and reports)
