Compliance with the technical requirements of the NAVSUP WSS IRPOD is expected. Any intended use of any material which is not in full compliance with the specified technical requirements should be identified as an exception in advance prior to manufacture.
Requests for waivers and deviations from the technical requirements invoked should provide justification for the requested change including an evaluation which demonstrates that proposed non-conformance will not affect the quality, form, fit, or function of the part. Where a proposed alternate or replacement item is offered, supporting technical data (catalog page, drawing(s), etc.) that fully describe the proposed item shall be provided for technical evaluation. Requests which do not contain this information will be returned and will not be submitted to engineering for review until sufficient justification is provided.
Acceptance or rejection of the proposed change will be provided upon completion of engineering review.
