 <note tip>**# 2** \\ Because AS 9100D fails to adequately address "//​fitness for purpose//",​ knowledgable Aerospace companies such as Collins Aerospace (previously UTAS) & Pratt & Whitney identify a minimum "//​accuracy ratio//"​ for M&TE (as 4:1) in their [[https://​www.utc.com/​suppliers/​aerospace-supplier-quality-requirement-documents|United Technologies ASQR-01 (Rev. 11), sec. 5.4.1]].</​note>​ <note tip>**# 2** \\ Because AS 9100D fails to adequately address "//​fitness for purpose//",​ knowledgable Aerospace companies such as Collins Aerospace (previously UTAS) & Pratt & Whitney identify a minimum "//​accuracy ratio//"​ for M&TE (as 4:1) in their [[https://​www.utc.com/​suppliers/​aerospace-supplier-quality-requirement-documents|United Technologies ASQR-01 (Rev. 11), sec. 5.4.1]].</​note>​
  
-<note tip>**# 3** \\ 1. To begin clause 7.1.5.2 with the words "//​When measurement traceability is a requirement...//"​ seems odd because ALL M&TE should have metrological traceability. While it has been speculated that this requirement is intentionally vague so as to also encompass subjective "​measuring tools" (e.g., Visual Representations (photographs),​ Representative Samples, Customer Satisfaction Surveys), due to this ambiguity, most AS 9100 auditors simply interpret this as a requirement for "​calibration"​ (a.k.a. "​Metrological Confirmation"​) records. The bottom line is, if ISO / IAQG had wanted something different, they should have been more specific. \\ 2. For clause 7.1.5.2a to require metrological traceability to "to international or national measurement standards"​ indicates either ​an ignorance on the part of ISO / IAQG concerning metrological traceability OR the influence of government members mandating the use of government funded NMIs (National Metrology Institutes). In either case, this is an antiquated way in which to address metrological traceability. To gain a better understanding of metrological traceability,​ read "​[[articles:​nist_traceability|NIST Traceability Numbers - The Sasquatch of Metrology]].</​note>​+<note tip>**# 3** \\ 1.

The acronym "​NAA"​ is intended to be understood to mean [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​National_aviation_authority|"​National Aviation Authority"​]].</​note>​
