These provisions/terms and conditions define the parameters of the inspection and certification requirements required as part of any request for cost information and any resulting purchase order. The respective purchase order or request for cost information sent to you will define which revision (by date) you should utilize in the performance of your efforts.

Unless otherwise noted, the latest dated revision should be used for the submission of documentation.

A-24 Documents

When a quality assurance specification is defined in a purchase order, the supplier's quality assurance system must meet the requirements of that specification. The level of the quality or inspection system required will depend upon the type of hardware being procured. Approval of the supplier's quality system may be obtained through an on-site survey of the supplier's plant by an Aerojet Rocketdyne Quality Assurance Representative, through evaluation of the supplier's quality assurance procedure or through evidence of acceptability of the supplier's quality or inspection system to other industry prime contractors.

As an additional assistance we have also provided detailed instructions for the completion of Aerojet Rocketdyne certifications as referenced in the A-24 or the quality assurance terms and conditions. These instructions can be found by reviewing the attached documents:
