  CLAUSE TITLE: MATERIAL REVIEW BOARD (MRB) AUTHORITY GRANTED


QC41                MATERIAL REVIEW BOARD (MRB) AUTHORITY GRANTED:

 

Contractor is granted MRB authority for JPL procured articles delivered under this Contract/Purchase Order. Contractor shall submit all MRB proceedings with all pertinent details and data related to the nonconformance to JPL for concurrence within three days, and prior to implementation, if the disposition is anything other than “use as is,” or "scrap."

Contractor shall identify each nonconformance in a Material Review Board (MRB) proceeding as a “Minor or Major Nonconformance”. Major Nonconformance is defined as affecting reliability, workmanship, performance, safety, interfaces, or other approved JPL documentation. Minor Nonconformances do not affect form, fit, or function.

Submittal of an MRB concurrence does not guarantee or obligate JPL to concur with Contractor's disposition if JPL provides a rationale why concurrence is not granted for nonconforming procured items.

Contractor shall process MRB proceedings per their established and approved quality procedures.
