Approvals: The design authority on the engineering drawing shall be used to determine approval status. Otherwise, procurement documents must clearly define the design authority when shop op. drawings are supplied with an order.

Drawings: Drawings and associated ECO’s, ECN’s and Parts List’s etc. are essential to a robust contract review and comprehensive planning process. Engineering process notes are verified against the purchase order ensuring the correct processes are performed and used in defining product handling, masking, racking, and dimensional inspections.

Reference Items: Please specify any other reference items you would like included on the certification, such as customer job number, heat lot, batch, serial numbers, supplier code etc.

Non-Stock Paints/Materials: Please note that a non-stock material or setup charge may be required for coatings or chemistry outside our standard inventory.

Additional Process Requirements: Parts may be subject to conditional material and/or specification requirements in which quoted lead times and/or pricing may be exceeded due to additional processing required. ( i.e. 7 to 14 day coatings cure, process qualification tests, pre and post treatments such as surface blasting, hydrogen absorption testing etc.)

Expedites: Please confirm all expedites with an Account Manager prior to sending an order, as applicable fees are determined by turnaround requirements, current demand and part/order characteristics.

Visual Receiving Inspections: MIL performs sample visual receiving inspections in accordance with ANSI Z1.4, Table I, Level S-1, Zero Defects. Non-conforming product will be identified and subject to customer disposition. Additional fees will apply to special or additional protocols such as 100% or reference magnification inspections.

Order Discrepancies: MIL Quality Assurance must be notified in writing within 10 working days after customer receipt of completed order with any discrepancies found.

Handling/Packaging: A $5 per box handling charge is applied to Fed-Ex/UPS shipments. Custom Packaging materials may require additional charges.

Certifications: There is no charge for certification as it is included in the quoted price of an order. However, if customer requires deviation from original certification an additional charge of $10 may apply.

New Customers / First Order Payment Policy: For customers with qualifying credit: First time orders invoiced at $2000 or less will ship upon completion with standard net 30 payment terms. Orders exceeding $2000 will require COD payment prior to order release. MIL accepts payment on first time orders prior to the completion of processing.
