  CLAUSE TITLE: LIMITED MATERIAL REVIEW BOARD (MRB) AUTHORITY GRANTED


QC41a  LIMITED MATERIAL REVIEW BOARD (MRB) AUTHORITY GRANTED:

 

Contractor is granted limited MRB authority for JPL procured articles delivered under this Contract/Purchase Order. Any nonconformances discovered by Contractor on products in its control shall be documented by Contractor’s approved method of nonconformance reporting and reported to JPL within three days. Contractor shall submit all MRB proceedings with all pertinent details and data related to the nonconformance to the JPL for concurrence within three days and prior to implementation.

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.
