Airbus and the QPL (Qualified Parts List)

Guru's.

Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section.

Does anyone have any experience supplying parts into the primes and the usage of their Qualified Parts List?

It was raised during a recent customer audit that it's not acceptable that the material we purchase (plastic granules), is only verified by checking the name of the material on the bag matches that of the material name listed on the C of C.

I'm told we should be checking the QPL, looking for material characteristics - by standard - and cross checking these characteristics against a certificate of analysis or some kind of material 3.1 form.

As far as i'm aware, AS9100 rev C took away the need for external material validation that used to be in Rev B. I'm now being told it's a customer requirement.

Of course, due to the multiple different materials and numerous deliveries of said materials from multiple suppliers, the work involved in cross checking melt flow data, and so on...is potentially immense. Is this actually required?

I can partially answer your question. You are right. There was the change to the AS9100 requirement in the "C" revision. It removed the verification requirement. However, it is also true that you may still be required to do it. I don't know about Airbus but Boeing put the requirement back in last year for those that follow the D6-82479. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that other Primes will follow along. I would verify with your customer.
