QUALITY ASSURANCE PROVISIONS
4.1 Responsibility for inspection. Unless otherwise specified in the con-
tract or purchase order, the contractor is responsible for the performance of all
inspection requirements as specified herein. Except as otherwise specified in
the contract or purchase order, the contractor may use his own or any other
facilities suitable for the performance of the inspection requirements specified
here in, unless disapproved by the Government. The Government reserves the right
to perform any of the inspections set forth in the specification where such
inspections are deemed necessary to assure supplies and services conform to
4.1.1 Responsibility for compliance. All items must meet all require-
ments of sections 3 and 5. The inspection set forth in this specification
shall become a part of the contractor's overall inspection system or quality
program. The absence of any inspection requirements in the specification shall
not relieve the contractor of the responsibility of assuring that all products
or supplies submitted to the Government for acceptance comply with all require-
ments of the contract. Sampling in quality conformance does not authorize
submission of known defective material, either indicated or actual, nor does
it commit the Government to acceptance of defective material.
