Getting the most current Boeing Specifications

How do I go about getting the most current Boeing specifications? We are a 2nd or 3rd party supplier and we want to be sure to get the most current Boeing specs for our processes.
We do not want to rely on our customers to give them to us.
Is there a Document/Spec/Specification supplier that can do this?

We are looking at NADCAP so we want to be sure that we have the most current specifications.

Thanks!

Re: Boeing Specifications

Suggest you peruse the Boeing Approved Sources link and navigate the links on the left of the screen. Be careful about applying the latest revision of a specification. Some times, the contract and the customer expectation is for the supplier to use a specific revision of a process spec, even though a newer revision might be available.

Check also the Process and Specification Support Standard Departure Accountability Pages.

Remember, the key is to use the applicable revision of a document, which might not be the latest.

The purchase order should be the guide as to what revision level of a document is relevant. If the PO calls out a revision level that's different from the current one, it's always best to confirm with the customer that the older one is to be used.

The 1st tier suppliers have access to Secure Boeing web site, which lists all specs and revisions.

If you are a second tier supplier, and your POs come from a 1st tier supplier, and not Boeing, your customer should documents specs and required revisions in his PO. You just need to follow your stated customer requirements.

And as Sidney stated, if the process is controlled in D-14426 form, your company needs to be approved by Boeing for the process, and you will be provided the latest specs by Boeing.

On this line of Boeing requirements. Be aware that they are pushing out to their supplier base the new ARP9013 specs covering sampleing. This is in suport of their existing requirement to approve all sampling plans. They are doing this because of the high number of plans being rejected.

I also need help with getting a Boeing spec- D1-8007. I am being audited soon and only have a worksheet left by the previous auditor. I have been navigating the Boeing supplier website to no avail. I can find many other specs, but cannot find this one. Can anyone please help me locate this spec? Or is this the one that has been revised to the new number? Perhaps it isn't available? Does anyone know??
Thanks

I mentioned to Boeing at the ST louis meeting that it would be nice if this ( and other D1 series that do not show) documents would be available thru the portal. I just checked again and it did not show the D1-8007. I could get to the D1-4426 and BAC and others.
Best option is to get a hold of your PQA rep or buyer to get a copy.

Why do customers make suppliers jump thru hoops to get simple information, like current revision levels of a document!?
In my case I don't want "the document" I just want to know the revision level of a document (well, several really). Even if the document is proprietary, exposing the current revision level (no history) is harmless and would save millions of dollars per year (or more) if the supplier doesn't have to waste time begging for something that could be (should be) readily available.
