(4) An example of computing the rating score is given below.
(a) You inspect a facility and find three unsatisfactory items with the
(b) The weights total 9. You subtract 9 from 100 to obtain the rating
score of 91. The rating score is entered in the "Rating Score" block.
THE HEADING OF THE INSPECTION CHECKLIST
a. The heading of the inspection checklist contains entries for basic information
on the facility undergoing the inspection, the authorities at the facility, and the purpose
of the inspection. Enter the name of the installation, the building number, and the
facility designation on the first line of the heading. Enter the name and title of the
person in charge of the facility and the name and title of the facility person who receives
a copy of the report on the second line. On the third line, check or write in the type of
facility being inspected and the purpose of the inspection. The entry for the "Rating"
block is discussed in the following paragraphs.
b. The "Rating" block on line three is an especially important part of the heading.
It contains four ratings: satisfactory, unsatisfactory, marginal, and other.
(1) The purpose of this block is to assign an overall rating to the facility. This
overall rating is derived from the number entered in the "Rating Score." In the "Rating"
block of the heading, you take the numerical rating score and assign it to one of the four
(2) The assignment of the numerical rating score to a specific overall rating
depends upon the local policy that you are following.
(3) For example, suppose you have inspected a facility and have determined
that the totaled weight of unsatisfactory items is 25. You then calculate the rating score
to be 75 (100 - 25 = 75). Which overall rating will you assign to this score? This
depends on the installation to which you are assigned. One installation may rate this
score as unsatisfactory; another installation may rate it as marginal.
