On June 30, 2015, the Los Alamos National Laboratory declared a lot of scaffolding to be defective after carpenters determined that scaffolding received in March 2015, did not appear to meet standards. An alternate supplier was used to order the parts after an initial scaffold order could not be completed within the time required. After the scaffold parts were received, a supply chain investigation identified that the current environment of scaffolding manufacturers, tubes and couplers may have come from China and the scaffold clamps from India, and may not have the same level of quality expected from the normal suppliers. The scaffolding parts that could be removed from service were dismantled, and the dismantled scaffolding and remaining unopened cartons were segregated. A non-conformance report was initiated.
