A few weeks ago, the DLA Land and Maritime contacted QTSL suppliers with a reminder about the minimum requirements to which components covered by the program must adhere. They noted that “all electrical tests are required to have full read and record electrical test results performed and included with all QTSL test reports.” Rest assured that all past and future price quotes from Advanced Component Testing meet these standards and all outstanding quotes will be honored by ACT. But with other labs that’s not always the case.
So the next time you get a lowball quote, look closely to see exactly what’s included… because as a QTSL supplier your company is responsible for ensuring component quality. And make sure you get it in writing.
As far as ACT goes, Advanced Component Testing performs all applicable tests and inspections strictly to AS6081 standards. The exception is with customers specifying a lesser testing standard for commercial parts with no connection to the DLA. We can accommodate those orders too.
So remember: Sometimes when it sounds too good to be true it’s because it IS too good to be true.
