We view our supplier base as an integral part of our value creation process, and hence we strive to maintain strong long-term partnerships with our suppliers. We believe in taking a process and risk-based approach and this is reflected in the supplier requirements described in this document.
This document highlights the requirements of NovAtel that are over and above the requirements of an industry standard Quality Management System. The requirements in this document shall be considered NovAtel’s “customer specific requirements” for the purposes of Quality System conformance and audits. They derive from a combination of NovAtel’s process and risk-based approach, industry best practices, and the flow down of requirements from our customers.
