This is a mixture of individual composite samples (see 3.14 below) from multiple compartments containing the same grade of product. The mixture is blended in proportion to the volume of product in each compartment. 3.11 quality certification statement A certification statement shall appear on all quality certificates confirming that the product meets the requirements of the relevant specification. An example of a suitable statement is as follows: “Certified that this sample meets the relevant specification with respect to the above tests and complies with ASTM DXXXX, Latest Revision.” 3.12 retention sample A sample taken and stored in a retention sample container for the purpose of laboratory analysis at a later date in the event that the quality of the original product needs to be verified. 3.13 segregated (isolated tanks and pipelines) To achieve positive segregation for product quality control, the inlet and outlet pipelines on each tank, as well as any piping connections to other grades of products shall be fitted with either: a) a double block and bleed (DBB) valve arrangement (either using a single DBB valve, or using two valves with a drain arrangement in a pipe spool between them); b) a removable distance piece; or c) a spectacle blind. 3.14 single-tank composite sample Sample obtained by blending upper, middle and lower samples. For a vertical tank of uniform cross-section, the blend consists of equal parts of the three samples. 3.15 test certificates The purposes of a properly documented series of test certificates outlining the properties of the aviation fuel is listed below. a) Provide assurance that the product has been tested and meets the relevant specification.
b) All records shall be dated and signed by the person responsible. For computer-generated records, a password- protected access system, traceable to the individual person, is acceptable as an alternative to a signature. c) Support the release of products for delivery to customers. Facility management is responsible for ensuring that the appropriate certificates cover aviation products in their care. The key documents include the RQC, COA, RTC, RC, and DD. The key documents are listed below. 3.15.1 certificate of analysis COA This certificate is issued by a laboratory other than that of the originating refinery, often at some point downstream of the point of manufacture. It contains determinations of all the properties required in the relevant specification, but will not necessarily provide information regarding the type and amount of any additives in the fuel. COAs shall be dated and signed by an authorized representative of the laboratory concerned and identify the fuel specification.
It shall include details relating to the identity of the originating RQC and/or COAs to allow the traceability of the product described. If the originating RQCs are not available, then a COA shall be completed with a note stating: “Certified that this sample meets the relevant specification with respect to the above tests and complies with ASTM DXXXX Latest Revision. No certification is given regarding the types and amounts of any additives that may be present other than those reported above.” 3.15.2 delivery document DD This document supports any delivery of product. It is used to document the volume of product moved, pricing and other information required such as product hazard classification and other regulatory requirements. The most common DD is the bill of lading (BOL) document used in road or rail transport deliveries. 3.15.3 recertification test certificate RTC Where aviation product is transferred to an installation under circumstances which could in any way allow the possibility of contamination, then before further use or transfer, recertification is necessary. Recertification testing is carried out to verify that the quality of the aviation fuel concerned has not changed and remains within the specification limits, for example, after transportation in ocean tankers or multiproduct pipelines, etc. The RTC (see Annex A and Annex B for minimum requirements) shall be dated and signed by an authorized representative of the laboratory carrying out the testing. The results of all recertification tests shall be checked to confirm that: — the specification limits are met, and — no significant changes have occurred in any of the properties. The results of such tests shall be compared to the expected calculated results from a weighted average of the previous tank recertification and the receiving batches RQC or COA as well as reviewed for compliance with the specification limits.
