QUALITY ASSURANCE PROVISIONS
4.1 Responsibility for inspection. Unless otherwise specified in the
contract or purchase order, the contractor is responsible for the performance
of all inspection requirements (examinations and tests) specified herein.
Except as otherwise specified in the contract or purchase order, the contrac-
tor may use his own or any other facilities suitable for the performance of
the inspection requirements specified herein, 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 ensure supplies and services conform to prescribed requirements.
4.1.1 Responsibility for compliance. All items shall 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 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 defective
matereial, either indicated or actual, nor does it commit the Government to
accept defective material.
4.2 Classification of inspections. The inspection requirements
specified herein are classified as follows:
a. First article inspection (see 4.3).
b. Quality conformance inspection (see 4.4).
