RATIONALE AMS-QQ-A-200/7C stabilizes this document because it is no longer state of the art and other documents contain similar but not necessarily equivalent requirements. NOTICE AMS QQ-A-200/7C has been declared "STABILIZED" by AMS Committee D, Non-Ferrous Alloys Committee . This document will no longer be updated and may no longer represent standard industry practice. This document was stabilized because it is no longer state of the art and other documents contain similar but not necessarily equivalent requirements. Previously this document was non-current. The last technical update of this document occurred in September, 1998. Users of this document should refer to the cognizant engineering organization for disposition of any issues with reports/certifications to this specification; including exceptions listed on the certification. NOTE: In many cases, the purchaser may represent a sub tier supplier and not the cognizant engineering organization. AMS Committee D recommends that the following similar but not identical specifications may be considered for future procurement. This listing does not constitute authority to substitute these specifications for the “STABILIZED” specification.
