||To all suppliers of the Rolls-Royce Aerospace Supply Chain (Civil & Defence product)
As part of our transformation into digital systems, we previously communicated (ref: NTS 412) our intention to move First Article Inspection Reports (FAIR) from the current version 3, to the industry standard version 4 of Net-Inspect¿.
The transition phase is now complete and all existing users are aligned to version 4.
To complete this transformation we are mandating that all suppliers submitting FAIR¿s must do so via Net-Inspect¿.
This mandate is effective from 2nd July 2018 at which point no newly generated paper FAIRs will be accepted with the exception of ITAR rated technology product.
For ITAR rated technology product, FAIRs will continue to be submitted in paper format until further notice.
