       Bob Koukol presented the status of AC 7108 amendments that addressed the Checklist Vision
       requirements. The Subteam has identified sixty nine checklist paragraphs that they felt infringed
       the vision requirements and of them sixty seven have been addressed in Rev. E. There was
       positive feedback from the NMC checklist Vision Subteam to the changes that were presented. The
       NMC checklist Subteam recommended that the changes were covered during auditor training and
       that the presentation was included in the NMC checklist ballot. The Task Group Subteam also
       presented other paragraphs of AC 7108 that may require modification.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to ensure that the auditor conference includes the changes to the checklist
(DUE DATE: 16-Sep-11).

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to ensure that NMC ballot includes the checklist Vision presentation (DUE
DATE: 31-Aug-11).


       Delegation oversight was reviewed for all delegated Chemical Processing Staff Engineers with data
       from audits closed between February 1, 2011 and May 31, 2011. All currently delegated Chemical
       Processing Staff Engineers continue to meet the requirements defined in NOP-003. No change
       was made to delegation status.

       The delegation spreadsheets of non-delegated Staff Engineers were also reviewed and were on
       track to achieve delegation.


       Nigel Cook reviewed the compliance to voting requirements spreadsheet and concerns were raised
       about the correctness of the data, some primes believing they had responded to some of the
       ballots. Additional concerns were raised because some primes believed they had not received the
       ballot emails.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to follow up on the issues identified and amend the spreadsheet accordingly.
Where a voting member still does not meet the requirements their voting rights are to be removed. (DUE
DATE: 31-Jul-11).

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to maintain copy of the delegation spreadsheet on the prime section of
eAuditNet (DUE DATE: 31-Jul-11).

       Anodize and etch exam questions were reviewed by the Task Group. Those question requiring
       amendments were identified and correct answers were agreed upon.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to provide Karyn Deming a summary of the required amendments for the etch
exam. (DUE DATE: 30-Jun-11).

       Etch exams could include question on blue etch anodize, but these will only be administered to the
       Chemical Process Auditors.

       Etch training presentations for the October auditor conference should include content to address
       the exam questions.

       The time line was reviewed and the Task Group were on track. Five NDT, five Chemical
       Processing, and five Primes with some experience with etch/anodize, made up from different
       regions will be used to pilot the exams. Primes that helped develop the exam should not be
       involved. The exams should be administered under closed book conditions so that they test the
       intrinsic knowledge of the people being examined.

ACTION ITEM: Bob Koukol, Veronique Marcel, Robert Nixon, Jerry Satchwell, Zia Usmani to review the
amended etch exam and have them available for use (DUE DATE:30-Aug-11).

       Droste, Mike Graham.

ACTION ITEM: John Koenig to review impact and report back at the October Task Group Meeting (DUE
DATE: 17-Oct-11)


       NMC Merit Proposal: Task Group reviewed the Merit proposal and identified some preferences
       and concerns:
            4.8% of CP suppliers would lose merit under new system.
            Auditor’s inconsistency in writing NCRs can lead to an inconsistency in Merit.
            This new requirements represents a positive change as they do not want to see a supplier
              receive merit that barely escaped the failure requirements.
            There will be increased pressure on the Auditors and Staff Engineers to re-categorize and
              regroup NCRs.
            Confusing the suppliers
            Increased number of appeals
            Rather than number of NCRs factor in the supplier’s performance history
            Merit criteria should be objective and not subjective.

                                                                               CHEMICAL PROCESSING
                                                                                          JUNE 2011

              This appears to have been an NDT initiative but they appear have one of the lowest effects
               due to this amended criteria - is there some other issue that they have to address.
              There is presently the facility to override standard merit that can be used to increase or
               decrease the merit period.

       After discussion the Task Group voted unanimously to reject the merit proposal as written.

       AUDIT # 141597 was failed due to excessive number of cycles. Review of the supplier’s appeal
       identified a number of complex issues and it was agreed to allow one further cycle.

       Laboratory Water: A concern was raised that this violates the specification requirements for FED
       STD 141 for wet tape adhesion testing. This issue is part of the AC 7108 Rev. E ballot and will be
       addressed during resolution of comments.

       AC 7108/2: An issue was raised regarding an inconsistency between AC 7108 paragraph 3.3.1.J
       and AC 7108/2 Paragraph 3.1.1.J. The paragraphs are meant to be identical but the NA and the
       guidance to allow NA in the AC 7108/2 has been omitted in error. The Task Group agreed that this
       was an editorial error.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to amend AC 7108/2 to make it compliant with AC 7108. (DUE DATE: 30-Jul-

       Ian Kitson: The Task Group agreed to waive the auditor exam and interview requirements.

       Audits Exceeding NOP-011 Failure Criteria: Due to changes in the supplier advisory process it is
       no longer possible to use this system to provide suppliers with an opportunity to provide information
       on incorrect NCRs. NOP-001 paragraph 11.2.3 requires the supplier to notify the audit report
       reviewer within 3 days of any corrections to NCRs. It was agreed to amend the audit handbook to
       make reference to this requirement.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to amend the Audit Handbook. (DUE DATE: 17-Oct-11)

       Audit #137021: Task Group reviewed the supplier’s appeal for award of 24 month merit. Task
       Group agreed that major NCRs were valid and the appeal was denied. This also applies to the
       satellite audits.

       Immersion/ Humidity Testing: Immersion testing per QQ-P-35 requires the use of distilled water
       and does not identify any purity requirements. To satisfy AC 7108 paragraph B6.5 the supplier
       should define how the water is to be controlled to maintain purity. Since there is no purity
       requirements it is acceptable to use distilled water that is controlled to prevent contamination.
       There is no requirement to carry out the periodic analysis of the water.

ACTION ITEM: William Calvert and Mike Graham to send out an auditor advisory. (DUE DATE: 15-Jul-11)

       3M 250 Tape: Task Group was made aware of a potential problem where a tape distributor may
       have been modifying batch # and expiry date.

       New Technology Survey: The Task Group reviewed and completed the new technology survey.

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to send the completed survey to Keith Purnell (DUE DATE: 30-Jun-11)

       Audit #143005: It was agreed that there were no temperature or humidity requirements for the
       coating in question and therefore AC 7108/1 section 3.21 was not applicable. The relevant NCR is
       to be voided and amendment to be made to AC 7108/1.

ACTION ITEM: Mike Graham to void NCR (DUE DATE: 30-Jun-11)

                                                                             CHEMICAL PROCESSING

ACTION ITEM: Nigel Cook to include the section NA and compliance guidance in for paragraph 3.21 into
the AC 7108/1 ballot. (DUE DATE: 15-Jul-11)

       audits because a supplier who had received a number of Nadcap audits had been applying an
       incorrect coating to their specification. A Subteam of John Koenig (Lead), Karyn Deming, Bob
