Any changes in process or product shall require advanced notification and approval by Wagner Machine. Some aerospace customers and government agencies require approval of changes per contract or law.
When the need to outsource work occurs (using sub-tier suppliers), Wagner Machine must be notified in advance, including changes in sub-tier suppliers and changes in location of manufacture prior to making the change. This requirement applies to Wagner Machine and the suppliers contracted by Wagner Machine to perform work and services, or provide products. Wagner Machine and aerospace customer requirements must flow down to any supplier’s sub-tier suppliers, including any key characteristics. Service work (plating, coating, heat treatment, etc.) must be to the applicable issue of customer specifications.
Certificate of Conformance
All orders or lots require a Certificate of Conformance to show that verification has occurred and the lot meets all requirements. Identification and traceability for each lot must be maintained and linked to the Certificate of Conformance. Records must be retained for at least 7 years. Records that are no longer retained must be destroyed versus discarded.
When nonconforming product occurs, Wagner Machine is to be immediately notified for appropriate controls and disposition. Root cause analysis and timely, effective corrective actions are required when Wagner Machine determines the supplier is responsible for the root cause of a problem.
Right of Access
Wagner Machine, its aerospace customers, and government authorities have the right of access to all facilities involved in processing of Wagner Machine orders and all applicable documents and records. Wagner Machine, its aerospace customers, and aerospace customer’s representative and government authorities intend to perform verification activities at supplier’s premises when warranted and to assure product and services conform to specified requirements. Advance notification will be provided. This requirement must flow down to all levels down the supply chain.
Verification by Wagner Machine or its customer shall not be used as evidence of effective control of quality and shall not absolve the supplier of the responsibility to provide acceptable product or service, nor shall it preclude subsequent rejection by Wagner Machine or its customer.
Wagner Machine will not utilize counterfeit parts, and must do everything possible with its suppliers and sub-tier suppliers to prevent the use of counterfeit parts.
Your employees, as a supplier of Wagner Machine, shall be made aware of their contribution to product and service quality, their contribution to product safety, and the importance of ethical behavior.
