MSFC-RQMT-2918 REV E

REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE CONTROL

active, Most Current
Organization: MSFC
Publication Date: 17 December 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 32
scope:

This document provides a consistent application of requirements for an electrostatic discharge (ESD) control program for electrical or electronic assemblies, equipment, and their constituent parts susceptible to damage from ESD. This document does not apply to ESD requirements for electrically initiated explosive devices. For propellant and explosive devices, reference MSFCSTD- 1800 or other approved procedures.

APPLICABILITY

This document shall be for use internally at MSFC and shall not be invoked or specified on contracts. Use ANSI/ESD S20.20 or other approved ESD control procedures for contracts. The Electrostatic Discharge Association (ESDA) is the custodial organization of ANSI/ESD S20.20. It is required that each organization (i.e., NASA Headquarters and Centers, including Component Facilities and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory) prepare an ESD Control Program Plan that addresses the requirements of ANSI/ESD S20.20. This document has been developed to comply with ANSI/ESD S20.20 requirements. This document shall apply to all MSFC organizational elements involved in the design, procurement, receiving, inspection, fabrication, test, handling, storage, and operation of flight and flight associated hardware, mission essential or critical ground support equipment and elements thereof containing ESD sensitive items for which MSFC-RQMT-2918 has been made mandatory. Specifically, these requirements shall apply to the following personnel as a minimum: electrical designers, engineers who troubleshoot electrical hardware, manufacturing personnel, quality assurance (QA) personnel, shipping/receiving personnel, kitting personnel, and electrical test personnel.

This document applies to the Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF) as well.

This document applies the following: all mandatory actions (i.e., requirements) are denoted by statements containing the term "shall." The following terms also apply: "may" or "can" denote discretionary privilege or permission, "should" denotes a good practice and is recommended, but not required; "will" denotes expected outcome, and "are/is" denotes descriptive material.

Due to significant changes imposed by the latest revision of ANSI/ESD S20.20 (i.e., the NASA agency-level/parent ESD standard), the effective date for full implementation of this document shall be six (6) months after its release. This will establish a "grace period" for the responsible organizations (users/operators) to continue using their existing ESD work areas and equipment without penalty, and allowing ample time to finalize the logistics of implementing the new requirements of this document.
