ASTM WK42298

    Revision of A788 / A788M - 11 Standard Specification for Steel Forgings, General Requirements

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A788 / A788M - 14a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.06 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Section 14.1 requires that all testing be made at the place a component is manufactured unless otherwise agreed on with the purchaser. In practice, most manufacturers are not equipped to perform all testing at the manufacturing facility. Rather, specialty testing laboratories are contracted to handle such testing. Requiring the manufacturer to have purchaser approval of this approach for every order places an undue burden on both the manufacturer and purchaser. It is proposed that the language of this section be modified to permit testing by organizations designated by the manufacturer without prior purchaser approval.
