Approvals For Product Qualification

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Land and Maritime-VQ division establishes and maintains a supplier base of products and suppliers that meet the specified performance, quality, and reliability levels of the U.S. Department of Defense Product Qualification Program.
