The Supplier shall provide a unique item
identifier on all delivered items for which the Government’s unit acquisition
cost is $5,000 or more. At the discretion of the Program Manager items valued
less than $5,000 may also be marked where identified by the contract.
The item unique identifier and the component data
elements of the DoD item unique identification shall not change over the life of
DFARS 252.211.7003 QA personnel shall identify contracts with IUID
requirements where inspection is identified at Source. Contracts containing
this DFAS Clause require the following:
IUID requirements shall be subjected to risk
based surveillance. Initial surveillance should include a process review with a
product examination to verify the process output. Intervals for continuing
surveillance should be based on supplier performance. IUID Process review should
address as applicable:
Visually verify (on a sample basis) that end items and/or components are
physically marked per Mil-Std 130N.
Verify the readability of the 2D Matrix using the appropriate bar code scanner,
if available. When the supplier
submits the hardware for acceptance; the Quality Assurance personnel should scan
the IUID matrix and verify the Certificate of Conformance and/or other
documentation. When scanning for
verification, the Quality Assurance personnel should ensure that the IUID
requirements are met per Mil-Std 130N as the scanner sends a Micro Scan
Verification Report to the computer which shows the actual IUID syntax and
number, the IUID Image as seen on hardware, the P/N, S/N, and cage code.
At suppliers where an APEX/PRISM SAP system generates the IUID label after the
hardware serial number is entered in the database, QA personnel should verify
accuracy of the data on a concurrent basis with the supplier.
If the IUID’s are submitted by the supplier via the WAWF, QA personnel should
verify the IUID on the WAWF document against the product on a sample basis.
When suppliers have scanners, but do not make their own labels, QA
personnel should initially verify the IUID 2D Matrix with the scanner.
Once compliance has been verified, a
review of the Certificate of Conformance (CoC) may be used in lieu of physical
verification w/the UID scanner. The
CoC should be re-verified periodically.
When suppliers send supplies to a packaging subcontractor for generating the
IUID label and Government final acceptance and shipment, QA personnel should
issue a delegation to the supporting CMO to perform the initial and on-going
