Quality Notifications can be initiated by either the Buyer or the Supplier. The general rule is that the party receiving the goods or services is the one that creates the Quality Notification. In a standard Purchase Order process flow, the Buyer would receive goods or services from the Supplier. If the goods or services were defective, then the Buyer would create a Quality Notification to initiate the process flow. In other cases, the Supplier (or Subcontractor) may receive goods or services from a Buyer or Component Supplier. In this case, they may detect defective goods or services and initiate the Quality Notification process.
