1.1.Definition of Acceptance Plan-An  agreed upon method of taking samples and making measurements or observations on these samples for the purpose of

evaluating the acceptability of a lot of material or construction (Transportation  Research Circular Number E-C03 7, 2002).

1.2.Purpose of Acceptance Plan-This recommended practice  provides  guidelines  in the preparation of statistically  based acceptance plans using statistical  and quality assurance (QA) principles.

The acceptance plans must be realistic,   fair to both the contractor and agency, and must be statistically accurate.

This recommended practice includes the basic criteria for the most common AASHTO applications.

It uses the broad definition of acceptance plan to include the separate  functions  of both quality control  (QC) and acceptance.

Other aspects  are provided where deemed important,

but should not be interpreted  to define a complete quality assurance (QA) Program. References  are given  for more advanced criteria and special applications.
