A product safety data sheet shall be available. 6 Technical requirements 6.1 General The product shall be manufactured in accordance with the requirements of the relevant material standard and the applicable requirements of this technical specification. A manufacturing schedule shall be established and applied in accordance with EN 2078. The product shall satisfy the requirements of the material standard and/or order and shall be free from irregularities prejudicial to the subsequent manufacture or use of this product. Notwithstanding previous acceptance complying with the material standard and this technical specification, any product that is found, at a later stage, to contain such defects shall be rejected. Unless otherwise specified, the requirements in Tables 1 and 2 shall apply in conjunction with those of the relevant material standard. Table 1 relates to lines 1 to 29 (inclusive) of the material standard and Table 2 relates to lines 30 onwards in which the sub-line format is also used. Lines 2 to 98 may also be opened in line 100 if the material standard details specific qualification requirements. If a specific line number is not shown in Tables 1 and 2, the requirement is stated in the material standard and/or order. The requirements of the order and/or material standard shall over-ride the requirements of this technical specification. SIST EN 4400-1:2019

EN 4400-1:2019 (E) 8 6.2 Qualification requirements Qualification requirements when invoked by the material standard and/or order are detailed in Tables 1 and 2. Unless otherwise agreed between the manufacturer and purchaser the qualification phase shall be as shown below: Qualification phase Starting Intermediate 1st, 2nd and 3rd batches 4th and 5th batches 6.3 Release requirements 6.3.1 Release tests Release testing shall be the responsibility of the manufacturer. The purchaser reserves the right to perform any of the inspections and/or tests required by the material standard and/or order. The test samples shall be representative of the product. When required, the manufacturer shall inform the purchaser of the planned dates for extraction of samples and release testing in order that these operations may be witnessed. Tables 1 and 2 detail the requirements for each line of the material standard. Unless otherwise specifically requested by the purchaser, a particular inspection and/or test for release shall be carried out if corresponding acceptance criteria and/or values are stated in the applicable material standard, but see also 6.3.5 "Capability clause". 6.3.2 Replacement/Retests If any requirement is not met, replacement or retests shall be carried out under the following conditions unless otherwise stated in the material standard or order. Replacement: If the test procedure or test piece preparation is faulty, testing shall be re-applied at the original frequency after rectification of the original cause of failure on a test sample located near the original. Retests: When failure cannot be attributed to faulty testing, or test piece preparation, further test samples shall be selected at twice the original frequency from the product, 1 (one) of which shall be that on which the original results were obtained unless already withdrawn by the manufacturer after suitable identification of the cause of failure. If all retest results are satisfactory, the batch shall be accepted. If 1 (one) or more tests are unsatisfactory, the batch shall be: • rejected, or • 100 % retested and the conforming products accepted, or • partially or fully re-heat treated if heat treatment can rectify the cause of the failure and tested as a completely new batch except for chemical composition. The re-heat treatment shall be stated on the inspection and test report. No product or test sample shall be re-heat treated more than twice. SIST EN 4400-1:2019

EN 4400-1:2019 (E) 9 6.3.3 Rejection Any failure to meet the requirements of the material standard shall be cause for rejection. 6.3.4 Special tests Special tests may be required by the purchaser. In such cases, the nature of the test, method, frequency and technical requirements shall be specified on the order or inspection schedule and shall be mutually agreed by the manufacturer and the purchaser. 6.3.5 Capability clause Where this is invoked and where sufficient evidence exists, the test will not normally be carried out for release purposes unless specifically requested by the purchaser. However, this in no way reduces the obligations of the manufacturer to fulfil the requirements. If subsequent testing indicates that the product does not comply with the requirements, the batch shall be rejected. If sufficient evidence does not exist, the test shall be carried out at a frequency agreed between the manufacturer and purchaser. 6.3.6 Statistical process control Reduction in the extent of release testing, other than that defined in 6.3.5 above may be negotiated with the purchaser on the basis of appropriate statistical process control and/or statistical data. 6.3.7 Inspection and test report The manufacturer shall furnish, with each delivery, a report conforming to the requirements of EN 2078 stating the following: a) manufacturer's name and address and, if appropriate, identification of the plant ; b) order number; c) the following statement: "This product has been tested according to EN 4400-1"; d) material standard number; e) delivery condition and metallurgical code of the product; f) quantity and dimensions; g) manufacturing and inspection schedule reference, if appropriate; h) cast and batch number; i) batch and/or test sample heat treatment, if required by the purchaser; j) results of all tests and chemical analysis and re-tests, if any. 6.4 Traceability Each product shall be traceable to the cast, production batch and/or heat treatment batch at all stages of manufacture, testing and delivery.
