Scrap composition conformance is critical to ensuring that ArcelorMittal Dofasco maintains its reputation as a superior supplier of high quality flat rolled steels. Material that does not meet our design criteria will be rejected . Rejections may also occur as the result of identified processing deficiencies related to scrap. (i.e.: Mixed loads) Processing deficiencies may only become apparent after an intermediate component is further processed or the finished product is in use. These requirements are detailed in our scrap specifications.
Scrap rejections can occur when the design criteria of each individual scrap type are not met. Scrap rejections could also occur at any time that the product is on ArcelorMittal Dofasco property. ArcelorMittal Dofasco personnel (scrap inspectors) react to a stringent set of guidelines, specifically designed to reinforce the acceptance of a quality product. Any product that does not meet this criteria, will be rejected and a non conformance report issued. All loads rejected due to quality issues and re-handled by ArcelorMittal personnel will be subjected to a reloading/handling charge ($400.00 fixed charge) Specific follow up on the non conformance coupled with the severity of the non conformance could be determined to be suspension or termination of said supplier to ArcelorMittal Dofasco.
