The CQI's Defence Industry Group (DIG) works with the Ministry of Defence's quality forum to help quality professionals learn, share, support each other’s development and influence the defence industries.

Together with DIQF (the MoD's quality forum), DIG provides information, networking opportunities and professional development, and helps to develop quality knowledge in the area of defence. We do this through events, regular e-newsletters, our web presence and the DIG LinkedIn group.

Register to join

The group is open and free to all members of the CQI, and non-members who wish to develop their knowledge and expertise in the area of defence and who can contribute to the objectives of the group.
