What does the term "qualifier" mean with regards to "qualifier paint scheme"??

I am relatively new to the hobby of civil aviation and plane spotting and this term has me stumped! What is the plane qualifying for??

Qualifier is an alliance between a few airlines in Europe including Swissair and AOM. "Qualifier" is the same idea as "One World" (AA/BA/...) or "Star Alliance" (UA/LH/...)

Qualiflyer is an alliance founded by Swissair and includes Sabena, TAP, THY, Air Liberte, Crossair, Air Littoral,, Air Europe, LOT and PGA Portugalia.

The Qualiflyer scheme is the scheme which has certain elements standardised on all Qualiflyer aircraft, the main one being a blue belly.

Somehow deleted Volare (note the double comma between Air Littoral and Air Europe).
