Supplier Quality & Contractual Requirements Manual
1 Purpose
This manual provides the general quality control requirements to be implemented by a Jamco America, Inc. (JA) supplier.
Specific JA customer or contractual requirements will be captured in Purchase Orders (POs). Suppliers and their
subcontractors will comply with all requirements on JA’s PO and its referenced documents.
2 Applicability
This manual applies to suppliers who produce or provide materials, parts or assemblies for special programs or other projects
as designated by JA Quality Assurance (QA), Quality Control (QC) or Procurement Managers.
2.1
All documents including drawings and specifications, whether issued by JA, government or JA customer, are considered
part of the PO requirements, when specified or referenced.
2.2
Suppliers are responsible for the certification of all off-the-shelf and catalogue items, including testing equipment, to
meet quality and safety requirements.
2.3
Suppliers who provide parts in support of Boeing programs must comply with the requirements of Boeing Quality
Purchasing Data Requirements X31764.

The JA buyer provides copy or access of this manual to suppliers to support JA quality requirements as directed by
Procurement, QC or QA Managers.
3.2
JA QA Manager/Designee
The JA QA Manager or designated employee is responsible for the maintenance of this manual. The QA Manager will also
provide resources, as necessary, to assist in the implementation of these requirements at supplier locations as part of
supplier development. The JA QA Manager or Designee may also recommend (to the JA Procurement Department) the
issuance of this manual to a supplier during the initial supplier approval process.
3.3
Subcontractor
A subcontractor is a company that is utilized by the supplier to perform a special process or provide a subcomponent or
material that is a part of another product furnished by the supplier to JA.
3.4

Supplier Quality & Contractual Requirements Manual
4 Definitions and Acronyms
4.1
Definitions
4.1.1
Certificate of Conformance (COC)
A certificate of conformance (COC) is a statement – sometimes issued as a certificate, but not always - prepared and
provided by a supplier with each shipment of parts, that provides assurance that all PO requirements have been met.
A COC is also a guarantee to the customer by the supplier that all requirements as stated in drawings or other
customer-provided specifications are met. All parts received by JA require both an FAI on file and a COC with the
shipment.
4.1.2
Delta FAI Submissions
Delta FAI submissions are to be completed for part revision changes and only require the inspection and
documentation of what has changed since the last revision. Delta FAI is also required for relocations of facilities, tools,
processes or parts, or any other alteration that will impact form, fit or function, and after a lapse in production of two
years.
4.1.3
Designee
A designee is a JA QA employee (or representative delegated from JA) who, through experience or knowledge, can
carry out the functions as described in Section 3.2.
4.1.4
Job Planning
Job planning is the process through which the supplier coordinates the sequence of events or work centers that the
work will pass through to create the part or product listed on the PO. This planning process should ensure that all
drawing, PO and other customer requirements are met.
4.1.5
Notice of Escape (NoE)
Notice of Escape (NoE) is a process used to formally notify JA of shipment escapes of NC product.
4.1.6
Purchase Order (PO)
The PO states the general requirements of an order being placed with the supplier. It will include the part number
being ordered, the revision, quantity, etc. The PO also contains specific requirements that may not be covered in this
manual.
4.1.7
Purchaser
Jamco America, Inc. (JA)
4.1.8
Special Processes
Special processes are those manufacturing, fabrication or assembly processes where the outcome or quality of the
process cannot be determined (unless destructive testing is performed) until after the parts or assemblies are placed
into service, use or designated environments. Welding, plating and bonding are examples of special processes.
4.1.9
Technical Information (TI)
Technical Information (TI) is information such as drawings, specifications, patents, designs, trademarks, etc. which is
the sole property of JA and not to be reproduced or used for any other purposes other than as indicated in JA’s PO.
Technical documents also cannot be altered without consent from JA as specified in section 6.15.
4.1.10
Time and Temperature Sensitive Materials
These are materials for which exposure to heat, cold or extended periods of time would render the material unfit for
use. These materials are to be formally controlled and labeled to identify exposure limits and are not to be used for
production once exposure limits are exceeded.

will prevail. Suppliers will replace rejected product and cover expense of transportation both to and from any Jamco
Facility if both parties, Jamco America and Supplier, have mutually agreed that rejection is solely caused by Supplier. In all
other cases, transportation expenses will be paid as per the original purchase order and replacement of product will be
determined by mutual agreement between the parties as documented on a purchase order. Suppliers, within a
reasonable period of time on written request of JA, will replace at their expense, the materials or services rejected by JA
with new materials or services of suitable quality. Supplier Quality Control records will be maintained on file and available
to authorized JA representatives. Any materials supplied for the performance of this order must be inspected prior to
assembly and/or manufacturing. JA authorizes the supplier to receive and inspect all materials that are drop-shipped from
outside sources. Suppliers are then held responsible that the end product of this order will conform in all respects to the
drawing and/or order that JA has issued. Any discrepancies in materials or supplies must be immediately reported to JA. If
the finished product is rejected at JA’s final inspection for NC materials, the supplier who manufactured and/or assembled
the product will be held liable. All materials are subject to JA’s inspection and acceptance at destination, regardless of any
prior payment or inspection at source. Such inspection will be made within a reasonable time after delivery. Acceptance
of any material will not be deemed to alter or affect the obligations of suppliers or the rights of JA under the warranty. In
addition, all rejected products returned to suppliers will require Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) and RMA will
serve as agreement that rejected parts are sole cause of supplier.
