ES Reports and expiration

Postby forumadmin » Thu Nov 04, 2010 9:45 am

Over many years you have verified product “X” through ES Reports (or similar testing report) and have seen this product used effectively in many applications. On this day you notice the report has expired since the last time you approved the product.

Do you reject the product due to the expiration of the report?


You look closer at the production date on the packaging and this date is previous to the expiration of the report.

Do you accept or reject this product?

I would accept it - based on the facts you represented.

ICC would tell you though if the eval is outdated, it is not/should not be accepted any longer.

On a separate point though, I'm of the opinion that you don't necessarily have to have an "ICC-ER" report for everything/every product. There are other ways/means for you to review a product. Granted, "ICC-ER" reports are the easiest way and probably the most reliable for what we are concerned with (IMO), but there are other methods of/for acceptance.
