specification where such inspections are deemed necessary to ensure supplies and services conform
to prescribed requirements (see 6.2).
4.1.1 Responsibility for compliance. All items shall meet all requirements 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 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 Inspection provisions.
184.108.40.206 Submission of product. Unless otherwise specified by the contracting activity,
formation, and identification of lots shall be in accordance with MIL-STD-105.
220.127.116.11 Size of lot. The production lot size shall be as specified in the contract (see 6.2).
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.
