As the essential part of the EQIPD Framework​, the Toolbox is a s​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​tructured collection of various quality-related items, such as guidelines, protocols, and tools that can be used to build an EQIPD Quality System.

The toolbox is used as a source of potential solutions by the Planning tool to populate the Dossier.​

EQIPD has developed a specific terminology that is used to describe the framework and the quality system Glossary.​​
