Standard Procurement Procedure
(1) Selecting Suppliers for a Request for Quotation (RFQ)
As a general rule, parties to whom we request a quotation are selected from among those already registered with us as suppliers.
The selection is conducted in a fair and equitable manner based on safety, quality/technological capabilities, environmental awareness, our ongoing relationship of trust, price, assurance of delivery date, implementation status of maintenance/management, after-sales service, response to accidents/defects, etc., while pursuing economic rationality with due consideration paid to social norms.
Quotations are generally competition-based and submitted by multiple suppliers. However, for intellectual property rights, conformity with existing equipment and other reasons, we may appoint a sole-source supplier if it is necessary or it makes sense to do so.
(2) Request for Quotation and Submission of Quotation
When requesting a quotation, the Company presents the technical specifications, contract terms, and other documents necessary for creating a quotation to selected suppliers in a fair and balanced manner. Required documents such as the quotation itself and quotation specifications must be submitted by the specified deadline.
In the event that a project requires individual technical checks, we may ask suppliers to submit quotation specifications before submitting a quotation.
(3) Price Negotiation and Decision on Contractor
Of the valid quotations submitted, we will negotiate the price with the supplier that offered the lowest price and decide on the contractor.
(4) Conclusion of a Contract
We will exchange a written contractual document with the contractor. This contract shall be based on the contract terms set by the Company. However, if necessary, we may prepare a contract according to the contents discussed and agreed by both parties.
(5) Product Delivery and Inspection, Payment of Contract Price
We will inspect the delivered products to determine if they meet our requirements. The contract price will be paid at the end of the month following the month in which the product passed its inspection. However, under special circumstances such as an extended term required to manufacture an item, a payment method may be determined separately.
Confidential information obtained by the Company and its suppliers through transactions shall be maintained as confidential by both sides, and shall not be disclosed to a third party without written consent.
