initially from the OC curves.

Now, let's move back from producer risk assessments to consumer protection and quality standard.  We firmly believe that quality of a batch should be judged against a specific standard.  Within the presented hypothesis framework, that standard is the limiting quality, defined as the quality corresponding to 5 percent acceptance probability; that is, a high confidence of rejecting such a batch at the limiting quality.  This addresses consumer protection issues, and as I said, a typical batch quality has to far exceed this quality to achieve reasonable acceptance rates.

A quality standard should not be simply a decision rule based on some typical batch quality.  That would not provide the hypothesis regarding what is acceptable or unacceptable quality in a batch.  That is simply a decision rule which is completely inflexible and completely tied to the sample size on which this decision rule is based.  So there is no flexibility.

It also would not be simple to cater for different products having different typical qualities.  There would be no mechanism, except to make exceptions
