Improving the Quality Of Defence Products: Way Up

For more than a year, the experts of the Reform Project Office of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine have been working on the issues of improving the quality of defence products.

In Ukraine, one of these issues is the creation of a system of state quality assurance of defence articles based on NATO approaches and standards. The existence of such a system will allow Ukraine to join the NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG 4107) and will have a positive impact on ensuring the quality of defence products and on the general national defence capability.

The corresponding tasks are provided for by the Annual National Programs under the auspices of the Ukraine-NATO Commission (ANP) for 2018 and 2019, which were approved by Presidential Decree dated 03.28.2018, No. 89/2018 and 04.10.2019, No. 117/2019.

In order to fulfil the tasks of ANP-2018 and ANP-2019, the draft “Concepts of creating a system of state quality assurance of defence articles” was developed. The draft Concept has undergone an internal approval phase in the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine and should soon be sent to the central executive authorities and other interested parties for approval and feedback.
