Quality Assurance Plan

Quality Assurance Plan (QAP)
QAP is the document which shows the sequence of Quality Control system (QCS) including frequency and numbers of tests based on the detail work program.

QAP generally presented by the contractor against the specification of the Employer/Client during the signing of the contract. QAP is the basic document to control the quality of works for contractor which also help the client/consultant for the supervision of the quality.

QAP contains the following

a) Quality Control Schedule
- test schedule
- testing program
- list of tests
- laboratory; site trials & trial sections
- construction control test & its frequencies
- numbers of tests to be carried out & list of equipment to conduct them
- list of “critical” acceptance testing procedures
- list of staff assigned to the laboratory, their position & responsibilities

b) List of sources of materials and/or of manufactured articles
