Surveillance Assessment of Factory and Factory Production Control system as per requirement of CPR and the
applicable Harmonised European standard BS EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011
Production location: As above Management representative:
Assessment date: Intended arrival time: 9:30 10:00am

As agreed, I can now confirm that I will be visiting your manufacturing site as detailed above to assess your Factory
Production Control (FPC). The assessment will commence with an opening meeting to discuss the format of the assessment,
which will only cover the production facility and process that are subject to a BBA contract.

The objectives being to confirm that your FPC is suitable for manufacturing of load bearing steel and/or aluminium
components in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 1090-1:2009 +A1:201. You need to have established, documented
and maintained an FPC system which consists of written procedures, regular inspections and tests and/or assessments and the
use of results to control the component’s constituent products, equipment, the production process and the manufactured
components. A FPC system conforming to the requirements of EN ISO 9001 and made specific to the requirements of above
standard will be considered to satisfy the above requirements.

As the assessor, in line with the welcome letter and related Annex, I am required to carry out inspection and evaluation of
your execution resources, (premises, personnel and equipment), including design where relevant, as being adequate to
manufacture steel and/or aluminium components according to the requirements in EN 1090-2 and / or EN 1090-3. In
particular, this will comprise: inspection and evaluation of the internal control system for checking conformity and procedures
for handling any nonconformity, evaluation of job descriptions and requirements for competence of personnel. For welding, I
shall check that the factory and the welding plant meet the requirement for the FPC with regard to equipment and personnel.

You will need to:

– inform relevant employees about the objectives and scope of the audit
– appoint responsible member(s) of staff to accompany me
– provide resources needed in order to ensure an effective and efficient assessment process
– arrange access to the facilities, FPC documentation and related record
Please provide details of any PPE that will be required.
The assessment will be concluded by a ‘closing meeting’, which will give the opportunity to discuss issues raised during the
inspection and to understand / agree any consequential actions. I expect the assessment inspection to be complete within the
working day.

I look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely
