ISO 404:2013 pdf download – Steel and steel products – General technical delivery requirements Place of specific inspection and testing
If the necessary facilities are not available at the manufacturer’s works, the inspection and testing shall be carried out at another place agreed between the two parties, or at an establishment certified by a recognized organization, preferably in the country of manufacture. In the latter case, the products shall not be delivered prior to the receipt of the test results by the manufacturer. Submission for specific inspection and testing
Where appropriate, the inspection representative shall be informed, by the manufacturer or his authorized representative, of the date of availability of part or all of the consignment for specific inspection and testing. Reference shall be made to the order. The manufacturer and the inspection representative shall agree upon the time and date of the inspection and testing, in order to avoid interference with the normal operation of the works and time for the delivery of the relevant documentation. Rights and duties of the inspection representative
In order to carry out the agreed inspection and testing, the inspection representative shall have free access, at the agreed time, to the places where the products to be tested/inspected are stored. The inspection representative shall have the right to be present during the selection of the samples, preparation (machining and treatment) of test pieces and during the tests. The inspection representative shall observe all the relevant instructions in force in the manufacturer’s works and especially the safety rules. The works shall have the right to have him accompanied by one of their representatives. The testing/inspection procedures shall be carried out so that disturbance of the normal run of production is minimized. Test method and equipment
Tests shall be carried out, and the results presented, in accordance with the corresponding International Standard. Where no such International Standard exists, other test methods shall be used that shall be agreed upon at the time of ordering [see 4.1 h)]. All inspection, measuring and test equipment used by the supplier to verify characteristics for which specific requirements are included in the order or product standard, shall be calibrated and adjusted against certified equipment having a known valid relationship to nationally recognized standards, where such standards exist, and be so maintained. Where such standards do not exist, the basis for calibration shall be documented. The supplier or his authorized representative shall maintain calibration records for inspection, measuring and test equipment. The accuracy of the measuring or testing equipment shall be sufficient in relation to the specified values and tolerances. The chemical composition may be determined by chemical or spectrochemical methods of analysis (see ISO/TR 9769). In cases of arbitration, the method used shall be agreed upon. Some of the major International Standards used for testing and analysis are listed in the Bibliography as references[8] to [18].
