This Appendix sets out the following different means by which compliance with this
Standard can be demonstrated by the manufacturer or supplier:
(a) Evaluation by means of statistical sampling.
(b) The use of a product certification scheme.
(C) Assurance using the acceptability of the supplier’s quality system.
(d) Other such means proposed by the manufacturer or supplier and acceptable to the customer.
Statistical sampling is a procedure which enables decisions to he made about the quality of batches of items after inspecting or testing only a portion of those items. This procedure will only be valid if the sampling plan has been determined on a statistical basis and the following requirements arc met:
(a) The sample shall he drawn randomly from a population of product of known history. The history shall enable verification that the product was made from known materials at essentially the same time, by essentially the same processes and under essentially the same system of control.
(b) For each different situation, a suitable sampling plan needs to be defined. A sampling plan for one manufacturer of given capability and product throughput may not be relevant to another manufacturer producing the same items.
In order for statistical sampling to be meaningful to the customer, the manufacturer or supplier needs to demonstrate how the above conditions have been satisfied. Sampling and the establishment of a sampling plan should he carried out in accordance with AS 1199, guidance to which is given in AS 1399.
The purpose of product certification is to provide independent assurance of the claim by the manufacturer that products comply with the stated Standard.
The certification scheme should meet the criteria described in HH 18.28 in that, as well as full type testing from independently sampled production and subsequent verification of’ conformance, it requires the manufacturer to maintain effective quality planning to control product iOfl.
The certification scheme serves to indicate that the products consistently conform to the requirements of the Standard.
Where the manufacturer or supplier can demonstrate an audited and registered quality management system complying with the requirements of the appropriate or stipulated Australian or international Standard for a supplier’s quality system or systems. this may provide the necessary confidence that the specified requirements will be met. The quality assurance requirements need to be agreed between the customer and supplier and should include a quality or inspection and test plan to ensure product conformity.
Guidance in determining the appropriate quality management system is given in
ASINZS ISO 9000 I and AS/NZS ISO 9004 I
If the above methods are considered inappropriate, determination of compliance with the requirements of this Standard may be assessed from the results of testing coupled with the manufacturer’s guarantee of product conformance.
