Please Note: A Certificate of Conformance is not an acceptable Hardware Traceability Certification.
When Hardware Traceability Certifications are requested by Xometry, material test reports (MTR’s), C of C from the Hardware supplier and all touchpoints back to the mill that produced the raw material need to be shown. This would show the PO from the partner shop to the Hardware supplier, the PO from the hardware supplier to the hardware manufacturer, then the PO from the hardware manufacturer to the mill that made the raw material. This paperwork should be provided for each different specification of hardware installed on the part. The documentation must be uploaded to the portal and a copy must accompany the shipment.
Hardware Traceability Documents can be requested from the supplier when the hardware is purchased.
