History: This publication has been reorganized to make it compatible with the Army electronic publishing database. No content has been changed.

Summary: This regulation implements DOD policy on nonconformance reduction and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Parts 46 and 52 policy on nonconforming material. It establishes policy and requirements to address improving quality through reduction in the cost and incidence of nonconforming products. It complements Total Quality Management (TQM) policy on nonconformance prevention which focuses on those actions that should be taken early in the design, development and production of new systems, subsystems, or equipment to achieve first-pass conformance and prevent repetitive nonconformances throughout the production process.

Applicability: This regulation applies to all DOD Contracting Offices (COs) and Contract Administration Offices (CAOs); however, CAOs will not initiate or continue action under paragraphs 5 or 6 when a contractor has demonstrated satisfactory evidence of continuous process improvement and is achieving low levels of nonconformance.

Proponent and Exception Authority: Not applicable.

Army Management Control Process: Not applicable.

Supplementation: Supplementation of this regulation and establishment of command or local forms are prohibited without prior approval of HQDA, ODCSLOG (DALO-TST).

Suggested Improvements: Not applicable.
