AESQ "Management of Key Date Related Approvals" Guidance Documents

About these Guidance Documents

Revised 15 September 2020

This set of guidance documents has been created to support suppliers in the Aerospace engine supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic by the AESQ group of companies. The guidance is based on customer specifications and industrial body published guidance where possible.

This is a set of guidance documents about the COVID-19 pandemic where Revision 1 covered the period from January 2020 through to 30 September 2020, Revision 2 extends this guidance to 31 December 2020. No further extensions to this guidance will be given and compliance to industry standards is expected on or before 31 December 2020.

These documents are guidance only – industrial bodies, international standards and customer specifications may have alternate requirements, and these should always take priority.

The normal order of document hierarchy and precedence for requirement flow-down still applies, and this guidance may be referred to within each organization's applicable documents.
