SECTION 9 - QUALITY ASSURANCE
Quality Assurance Program
The Manufacturer shall have a working Quality Assurance Program in existence. The Quality Assurance Program is to include, but is not limited to, providing qualified supervisors, qualified inspectors, required inspections, and records. This program shall assure ASPA that all materials and/or work are supplied and/or conducted in accordance with the applicable codes, applicable shop drawings, this Specification, and proper work practices.
All quality assurance shall be conducted at the Manufacturer’s expense.
ASPA maintains the right to engage their own independent testing laboratory for the purpose of performing non-destructive tests on fabricated assemblies or sub-assemblies at the fabrication and assembly site. ASPA reserves the right to reject any defective work and/or materials and such rejection shall not be grounds for extension of the delivery schedule. All re-testing required by failure on initial tests shall be paid for by the Manufacturer. ASPA and its representative(s) shall have full right of access to the Manufacturer's plant.
