Paper Abstract

GIRAFFE is a medium to high resolution spectrograph forming part of the complex multi-element fibre spectrograph FLAMES on the 8.2m VLT-UT2 telescope which also has a fibre link to the high-resolution spectrograph UVES. It has been operational since March 2003. GIRAFFE has been designed to be very stable and efficient. Here, first results concerning the Quality Control process are presented.
