Recording Acceptance Sampling Results

An article in the Acceptance Sampling aisle discusses an issue with recording the results of acceptance activities. The Baltimore District Office cited a company for recording “x” for a sampled unit out of specification instead the actual value. The article discusses regulatory requirement and explains why the Warning Letter is incorrect. It also explains the best practice, Z1.9, for sampling when you measure the actual value. Don’t convert to an attribute and use Z1.4.
