On 01 January 2016, the Military Aviation Authority (MAA) became the first ever organisation, globally, to join the International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) Approved Auditor Competence Scheme.

The new scheme allows IRCA, a division of the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI), to recognise the competence of those auditing against any audit criteria, be they the organisation’s own safety management system, military regulations, or National guidelines: the focus is no longer solely on ISO based management systems.

Over the past two years IRCA has worked in partnership with the MAA and the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom to develop, review and approve their auditor training and has concluded that the MAA meets the highest standards of professional training and development for auditors.

On 26 January 2016, at a welcome address and lecture held at Abbey Wood North, the Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) CQI, Mr Vince Desmond, presented Director MAA (D MAA), Rear Admiral (RAdm) Chivers, with a certificate accepting the MAA as the first ever IRCA Approved Auditor Organisation.

Mr Vince Desmond, Acting CEO (CQI):


The MAA has demonstrated the highest standards of training and development for their management systems auditors and the CQI is delighted to welcome them as the first IRCA Approved Auditor Organisation.

RAdm Paul Chivers OBE RN, D MAA:


The MAA provides assurance of aviation safety across the Defence Air Environment, including the Armed Forces and our industry partners. The recognition by IRCA as an Approved Auditor Organization is extremely pleasing. The abilities of our people have been recognised internally by our own management system and now by IRCA through this new approval scheme. I am delighted to receive certificate number 0001 and look forward to continuing to build our relationship with IRCA.
