Signature on Mill Test Report

Signature on Mill Test Report

Signature on Mill Test Report

Can anyone guide me to any standard or section in a standard that specifies requirement of Signature on the Mill Test Report? Some say that it is need and some say taht it is not needed as per ASTM A 703. Thanks in advance.  

RE: Signature on Mill Test Report

ISO 10474 - Steel and steel products - Inspection documents - Section 5:
"The inspection documents shall be signed or marked in an appropriate way by the person(s) responsible for the validation of documents.  However, if the certificates are prepared by a suitable data-processing system, the signature may be replaced by an indication of the name and position of the person responsible for validating the document."

RE: Signature on Mill Test Report

EN 10204

If your product is ordered as per ASTM A703, without reference to ISO 10474 or EN 10204, then a signature is not necessary as stipulated in subclause 16.3 of A703.
