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.

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 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 supplies or services at the discretion of the contracting officer when 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: Respondents: 639. Total Annual Responses: 639. Total Burden hours: 320. D. Public Comment A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register at 84 FR 28813 on June 20, 2019. No comments were received.

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.
