Any one of the following three methods of verification is acceptable. The laboratory should be able to demonstrate that the subcontractor is competent and is in compliance with the requirements of the test methods.
The laboratory should maintain records of the subcontractor and vendor evaluations. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Records of such verifications or standardizations shall be maintained. Remember me Forgot password? A quarterly exchange of samples between laboratories in accordance with Practice C will provide excellent quality assurance data. Each method of sieve verification shall include an inspection of the sieve cloth for punctures or obvious defects.
NOTE 8—Other recommended quality programs for a laboratory include: Committee C09 has identified the location of selected changes to this practice since the last issue, C—10, that may impact the use of this practice. Other programs may also be available. Added new Note 4 and renumbered subsequent notes.
Where additional calibration or verification requirements have been listed in the Facilities, Equipment, and Supplemental Procedures Section, this information shall also be included in the records.
The testing agency services shall be provided under the technical direction of a registered professional engineer. Where the supervising laboratory technician is supervising technicians who only test aggregates, the applicable relevant tests are the aggregate tests listed in the group.
Test Methods and Procedures 7. The members of the evaluation team shall be qualified and trained for the services to be performed in accordance with the quality system manual of the Accreditation Body.
Deviations from written procedures during the conduct of an assessment shall be documented. Approved February 1, 1 Added new 1.
The technician program must include a written examination and performance examination of relevant tests. NOTE 5—Deviation from standard test methods may adversely affect results. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.
The testing laboratory being evaluated performs corrective actions for any deficiencies noted, and these corrections are to be placed with the other inspection documentation as part of the permanent record of the inspection.
Records concerning the calibration, verification, and standardization of equipment are an example.
NOTE 1—Specification E provides criteria for asttm evaluation of laboratories that perform the inspection of concrete during placement. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.

Approved April 15, 1 Revised 6. The PSP used must meet the satm criteria: Those records that are confidential in nature, including test reports and other records generated as required by contract with the client, shall be stored safely in confidence to the client, unless otherwise required by law, governing specification, or client requirements. Each year, explosions and fires caused by combustible dust hazards result in horrific injuries, deaths and the destruction of property.
Astj frequency of verifications or standardizations shall be in accordance with the governing standard or the Inspection 6 C — 10b it is permitted for some procedural aspects of test methods or practices to be described by laboratory personnel in lieu of demonstration.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the ast of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The reference measurement standards shall be standardized by a competent body traceable to nationally recognized standards. Note 1—Specification E provides criteria for the evaluation of agencies that perform the inspection of concrete v1077 placement.
Mechanical agitation periods must be established for each different type of aggregate tested. Participation in a proficiency sample program with relative density specific gravity and astk testing is an acceptable alternative.
If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below. It can be used by an evaluation authority in the inspection or accreditation of a laboratory or by other parties to determine if the laboratory is qualified to conduct the specified tests.
This may include organizations that offer commercial testing services, an in-house quality control function, an academic sstm, or any other organization providing the required testing services. Results shall be verified for single operator precision within the tolerance stated in the respective test method.
This shall include any potential conflicts that could be reasonably construed or perceived to impair the impartiality of their evaluation.
Combustible dusts are fine particles that present an explosion hazard when suspended in air under certain conditions. An inspection is an evaluation of equipment and procedures based on the Test Methods and Procedures section, along with a review of the quality system.
The materials and standards for which the laboratory has been evaluated and the duration of the accreditation shall be indicated on the certificate or on other means used to recognize accreditation.
It can be used by an evaluation authority in the inspection or accreditation of a testing agency or by other parties to determine if the agency is qualified to conduct the specified tests.
