In order to fulfil the requirements in the technical specification, the supplier shall have documented procedures and instructions for quality assurance.
The supplier of the offered products shall itself, or through its sub-supplier, have documented routines and instructions in order to ensure:
- that the requirements are checked and met during the contract period
- that documentation which demonstrates requirement conformity is available
- that there is a contact person in relation to the procuring authority
In order to ensure that the above items are observed in daily production, the routines and instructions at a minimum must include the following:
- organisation, quality supervisor, contact person and other supervisory personnel as well as their areas of responsibility,
- monitoring and record keeping (e.g. regular inspection of raw material and product quality),
- reporting and handling of deviations related to the set requirements,
- reporting and documentation of planned production changes to the product offered,
- contact person reporting on points 3 and 4 above to the procuring authority,
- reporting, documentation and handling of claims and complaints about the products offered,
- traceability upstream in the supply chain by means of batch coding of the product.
- Production unit certificate in accordance with ISO 9001
- Own documented system that includes item 1-7 in the requirement
It is important to set this requirement in order to ensure that the supplier has the resources and procedures necessary to fulfil the requirements set on the products (in the technical specification) and to prove that they are fulfilled. The above quality system is a prerequisite for e.g. following up any claims, investigating quality issues and ensuring that the products do not contain hazardous substances.
The requirements for chemical-technical products are mainly set for the properties of products and the substances contained, and only in exceptional cases are requirements set for limiting individual specified substances. The intention with this approach is to stimulate technical development so that the environmental and health characteristics of chemical-technical products are continuously improved. Another important idea behind the criteria is to combine the lifecycle perspective with a risk perspective, in other words, focusing on aspects where there is significant risk of substances contained impacting on health or the environment. In some cases, specific relevant exceptions from the requirements are stated.
