B. Needs and Uses

    Supplies and services acquired under Government contracts must 
conform to the contract's quality and quantity requirements. FAR Part 
46 prescribes inspection, acceptance, warranty, and other measures 
associated with quality requirements. Standard inspection clauses 
require the contractor to provide and maintain an inspection system 
that is acceptable to the Government; give the Government the right to 
make inspections and test while work is in process; and require the 
contractor to keep complete, and make available to the Government, 
records of its inspection work. FAR clause 52.246-15, Certificate of 
Conformance, is not an inspection clause, but a requirement for the 
contractor to certify that supplies or services furnished are of the 
quality specified and conform in all respects with the contract 
requirements.

C. Annual Burden

1. Inspection Clauses

    The FAR inspection clauses are used for quality assurance depending 
on the type of contract and the type of product or service being 
provided. The corresponding quality/inspection systems the contractors 
are required to implement have requirements for record keeping and in 
some cases documenting the quality or inspection system. These clauses 
do not require the transmittal or sending of documentation to the 
Government. Instead, the Government may review these records to confirm 
the contract quality requirements are being met. Definitive information 
was not available on how often the Government requests to see these 
records. The time required to provide the records is estimated as 
follows:
    Respondents: 1,590.
    Total Annual Responses: 1,590.
    Total Burden hours: 1,590.

2. Certificate of Conformance

    FAR clause 52.246-15 is used in solicitations and contracts for

it is in the Government's interest, small losses would be incurred in 
the event of a defect; or because of the contractor's reputation or 
past performance, it is likely that the supplies or services furnished 
will be acceptable and any defective work would be replaced, corrected, 
or repaired without contest. The clause requires the contractor to 
submit a prescribed certificate. The time required to submit the 
certificate is estimated as follows:
