VENDOR QUALITY CONTROL (QC) CODES

Applies to POs dated on or after to October 28, 2013

Last Updated: February 9th, 2016

Quality Codes are used to communicate specific quality and contract requirements to our vendors. Below is a list of the current QC Codes being used by General Dynamics C4 Systems, General Dynamics Information Technology, and General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems (Scottsdale, AZ campus).

D01
Supplier is required to submit a First Article Inspection (FAI) report on the subject material. Format is required to comply to AS9102. Shipment of material is contingent on General Dynamics’ Quality Engineering acceptance of the submitted report. Record of FAI performance shall be maintained by the supplier for three (3) years, at a minimum, and a copy should be submitted with delivery of the unit used in performance of the FAI.

If supplier has previously performed an accepted FAI, supplier shall first ensure that revision on the current order is the same as on the order previously approved. If not, a delta FAI must be performed in which all changed characteristics are objectively validated. A delta FAI may also be required if it has been more than three (3) years since the last time supplier has manufactured the part in question.

D02
Regardless of prior approvals or status, for material on the subject Purchase Order line, the supplier shall inspect one piece from lot for all dimensional characteristics and notes listed on the drawing, recording all results as objective evidence of the inspection, and clearly tagging/identifying the part that was inspected. Recorded data shall be provided to General Dynamics with the shipment.

D03
The supplier shall provide with each shipment, one reproducible copy of a written statement on the supplier’s letterhead or form, attesting to the compliance of all requirements imposed on the subject material (C of C).

If supplier to General Dynamics is not the original manufacturer, supplier is responsible for obtaining all necessary information from the original manufacturer. C of C may be part of the packing list, at supplier’s discretion.

D04
A raw material Certificate of Compliance (C of C) is required on this order line. The C of C should indicate the material used to fabricate the parts supplied is compliant with all requirements, as specified. Additionally, supplier is to submit a test report showing actual chemical and mechanical properties analysis test data on the lot of raw material used to manufacture the items or raw material shipped against this order line.

(a) Definitions for purposes of this Contract/PO:
(i) “Counterfeit Parts” shall mean a part, component, module, or assembly whose origin, material, source of manufacture, performance, or characteristics are misrepresented. This term includes, but is not limited to, (A) parts that have been (re)marked to disguise them or falsely represent the identity of the manufacturer, (B) defective parts and/or surplus material scrapped by the original manufacturer, and (C) previously used parts pulled or reclaimed and provided as “new”.
(ii) As used herein, “authentic” shall mean (A) genuine; (B) from the legitimate source claimed or implied by the marking and design of the product offered; and (C) manufactured by, or at the behest and to the standards of, the manufacture that has lawfully applied its name and trademark for that mode/version of the material.
(iii) “Independent Distributor” shall mean a person, business, or firm that is neither authorized nor franchised by an Original Component Manufacturer (“OCM”) to sell or distribute the OCM’s products but which purports to sell, broker, and/or distribute such OCM products. Independent Distributors are also referred to as unfranchised distributors, unauthorized distributors, and/or brokers.

(b) SELLER represents and warrants that only new and authentic materials are used in products required to be delivered to General Dynamics (GD) and that the Work delivered contains no Counterfeit Parts. NO other material, part, or component other than a new and authentic part shall be used unless approved in advance in writing by the GD Procurement Representative. To further mitigate the possibility of the inadvertent use of Counterfeit Parts, SELLER shall only purchase authentic parts/components directly from the Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”)/OCMs or through the OEMs/OCMs authorized distribution chain. SELLER must make available to GD, at GD’s request, OEM/OCM documentation that authorizes traceability of the components to that applicable OEM/OCM.
Purchase of parts/components from Independent Distributors is not authorized unless first approved in writing by GD Procurement Representative. SELLER must present complete and compelling support for its request and include in its request all actions to ensure the parts/components thus procured are legitimate parts. GD’s approval of SELLER request(s) does not relieve SELLER’s responsibility to comply with all Contract/PO requirements, including the representations and warranties in this paragraph.

(c) SELLER shall maintain a documented system (policy, procedure, or other documented approach) that provides for prior notification to the GD Procurement Representative and his/her written approval before parts/components are procured from sources other than OEMs/OCMs or through the OEM/OCMs authorized distribution chain. SELLER shall provide copies of such documentation for its system for GD’s inspection upon GD’s request.

(d) If the SELLER is providing electronic components/devices only, the following certification applies.
Certification of Origin of Product:
Acceptance of this Contract/PO constitutes confirmation by the SELLER that it is either the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Original Component Manufacturer (OCM), or a franchised or authorized distributor of the OEM/OCM for the product herein procured. SELLER further warrants that EOM/OCM acquisition documentation that authenticates traceability of the components to that applicable OEM/OCM is available upon request. If the SELLER is not the OEM/OCM or a franchised or authorized distributor, the SELLER confirms by acceptance of this Contract/PO that each product supplied to GDC4S has been procured from the OEM/OCM or a franchised or authorized distributor of the OEM/OCM. The supplier further warrants that the OEM/OCM acquisition traceability documentation is accurate and available to G upon GDDC4S’ request.

(e) SELLER shall flow the requirement of this Clause to its subcontractors and suppliers at any tier for the performance of this Contract/PO.
