The Material Return Notice AS Template covers date, quantity, part number, reason for rejection, and more. In the event of any damage, deterioration, of unsuitability of customer-supplied items, Receiving should process such items in accordance with AS1230 CONTROL OF NONCONFORMING PRODUCT. An AS1170-1 MATERIAL RETURN NOTICE should be prepared with the applicable information. The Aerospace Material Return Notice should then be returned to the customer with the nonconforming items and other related paperwork (e.g., packing slips).
If, for any reason, there is a shortage or loss of items discovered after the original Receiving and Inspection report is prepared, the Inventory Control Manager should issue a written report on the discrepancy, in accordance with AS1230 CONTROL OF NONCONFORMING PRODUCT, and notify the customer of the loss. The Inventory Control Manager is responsible for identifying items as coming from or belonging to the customer, keeping those items segregated from other production materials/tools, and maintaining control of customer inventory.
