Prohibited Materials Section

The following section of the NASA Parts Selection List (NPSL) has been developed to identify materials often used in the manufacture and assembly of EEE parts that shall be prohibited from use in high reliability NASA electronic systems and flight hardware. Users are strongly urged to familiarize themselves with these issues to minimize the risk of introducing potential problems. In addition to the issues noted in this section, each commodity section within the NPSL has application notes that are unique to the commodity. Therefore, users should also review the application notes contained in each commodity section.
