    1. PURPOSE

    The purpose of this document is to specify purchase order or purchase order line specific requirements that assure the production of quality product.

    Additional supplier requirements are specified in the Supplier Manual (SPX-00007672). All documents referenced in this document can be found on www.spacex.com/legal or are otherwise publically available.

    The clauses in this document may be applied to any SpaceX Flight or Non-Flight purchase order line providing production parts, materials, and services to SpaceX. SpaceX may also elect to apply one or more of these quality clauses to other categories of purchase order line. All documents referenced in this document can be found on www.spacex.com/legal or are otherwise publically available.

    2. DEFINITIONS

    Alpha Revision - An alpha revision is a sequential capital letter, starting with the letter "A", appearing in the revision block of a SpaceX drawing indicating a change to a previously issued drawing. It can also be indicated by a sequential capital letter separated by a slash at the end of a part number.

    Audit - An official inspection of a Supplier’s capability, capacity, special processes, quality management system, or other critical performance factors. Audits records are completed forms stored in the Supplier Maintenance system and used to justify changes in supplier approval status. Note that Audits are surveys, and that variation between audits, auditors, and suppliers within reason is normal and expected.

    Certificate of Compliance (CoC) - A document provided by the Seller and certified by a competent authority that provided goods or services meet all required specifications. Alternatively referred to as a certificate of conformance.

    Country of Origin - the country of manufacture, production, or processing where a product originates. Note that specific Country of Origin requirements may be governed by Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR clauses) and other contractual requirements.

    Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) - Any item or supply that is;(i) A commercial item, that is, of a type customarily used by the general public or by non-governmental

    entities for purposes other than governmental purposes, and (i) Has been sold, leased, or licensed to the general public; or (ii) Has been offered for sale, lease, or license to the general public;

    (ii) Sold in substantial quantities in the commercial marketplace; and(iii) Offered to SpaceX under a contract or subcontract at any tier, without modification, in the same

    form in which it is sold in the commercial marketplace; and

    Foreign Object Debris (FOD) - A substance, debris or article alien to a system, subsystem, assembly, component, or process which would potentially cause damage or otherwise interfere with performance or reliability.

    SPX-00000874, Current Version 37.0

    QUALITY Page 8 of 22Printed documents are uncontrolled. Verify document revision with online system prior to use.

    Non-destructive Testing (NDT) – An evaluation technique that assesses material, part, or system properties without causing damage or changes to performance. May also be referred to as non-destructive evaluation (NDE) or non-destructive inspection (NDI).

    Numeric Revision A numeric revision is a sequential numeric digit, starting with the number "1", appearing in the revision block of a SpaceX drawing indicating a change to a previously issued drawing. It can also be indicated by a sequential numeric digit separated by a slash at the end of a part number.

    Repair - The subjection of nonconforming material to an approved process designed to reduce but not completely eliminate a nonconformance. The purpose of repair is to bring nonconforming material into an acceptable condition. Repair is distinguished from rework in that the item after repair still does not completely conform to the applicable drawings, specification, or contract requirements, but does meet intended function(s).

    Rework - The reprocessing of nonconforming material to make it conform completely to the drawings specifications or contract requirements.

    Seller - The party identified on the face of this contract (the purchase order) with whom SPACEX is contracting. Used interchangeably with “Supplier.”

    Supplier Request for Information (SRI) – SPX-00002691 is a form used to establish effective communication between SpaceX and Suppliers to assure compliance with required specifications. The SRI form should be used as a means to 1) request information, 2) request approval for changes to product or processes, 3) request documentation and direction related to non-conformances, and 4) submit an NDT technique for approval.

    SpaceX - SPACE EXPLORATION TECHNOLOGIES CORP., acting through its companies or business units as identified on the face of this Contract. If a subsidiary or affiliate of SPACEX is identified on the face of this Contract, then "SPACEX" means that subsidiary or affiliate.

    Special Processes - Those processes which cannot be verified by SpaceX prior to installation or delivery. Typically, these processes can only be tested or inspected by destructive testing. Examples include: Welding, brazing, plating, heat treating, non-destructive testing, etc. Note that SpaceX may elect to control certain processes as though they were Special Processes even if they do not meet the definition listed here.
