Technical and legal relations in the production concern certain actions and interactions in a company. Knowledge in this area is essential for proper risk management. In this paper, the relations occurring in the production of aircraft parts responsible for flight safety, taking into account the construction and technological requirements as well as legal aspects were analyzed. The results of the performed analysis were used in building of a system of legal relations in the production of airplane parts. Moreover, problems concerning compliance with legal regulations were analyzed. It has been shown, among others, that it is impossible to eliminate the human factor from the production process. This results in the necessity to carry out awareness, ethical and professional training of the personnel involved in the entire production chain, from the preparation of process documentation to the final product inspection. The study is interdisciplinary in nature, combining the analysis of structural, technological, organizational, and legal issues related to the production of critical aerospace parts.
