quality program. The absence of any inspection requirements in the specification shall not relieve the
contractor of the responsibility of ensuring that all products or supplies submitted to the Government for
acceptance comply with all requirements of the contract. Sampling inspection, as part of manufacturing
operations, is an acceptable practice to ascertain conformance to requirements; however, this does not
authorize submission of known defective material, either indicated or actual, nor does it commit the
Government to acceptance of defective material.
4.1.2 Quality assurance terms and definitions. Reference shall be made to MIL-STD-109 to define the
quality assurance terms used.
4.1.3 Inspections. Inspections shall be in accordance with MIL-A-2550 and MIL-STD-453.

4.2.2 Examination. One hundred percent examination shall be performed for all critical defects.
Examination for major and minor defects shall be performed in accordance with the classification of defects.
Four power (4x) magnification may be used for inspection of such defects as burr and foreign matter. When
compliance with the applicable requirement is in doubt as a result of visual examination, the characteristic
shall be measured or gaged to determine acceptability. All nonconforming material shall be rejected.
