DEFENSE FAR SUPPLEMENT (DFARS) Change Notice 20050801

 

DoD published the following proposed DFARS change on August 1, 2005

 

Proposed Rule:

 

Notification Requirements for Critical Safety Items (DFARS Case 2004-D008)

 

Proposes to add a new contract clause requiring contractors to promptly notify the Government of any nonconformance or deficiency that could impact item safety.  The clause would be used in contracts for the acquisition of (1) replenishment parts identified as critical safety items; (2) systems and subsystems, assemblies, and subassemblies integral to a system; or (3) repair, maintenance, logistics support, or overhaul services for systems and subsystems, assemblies, and subassemblies integral to a system.  The proposed change is a result of Section 8143 of the Fiscal Year 2004 DoD Appropriations Act, which required examination of appropriate standards and procedures to ensure timely notification to contracting agencies and contractors regarding safety issues, including defective parts.
