Formal title: SVA Qualification Processes Review
Proposed Modification P197 seeks to create a new SVA Qualification process to replace the existing Certification and Entry Processes. The new SVA Qualification process is intended to be more efficient and relevant to the developing market than the current processes. This is the recommendation that was developed by the SVA Qualification Review Group and the Supplier Volume Allocation Group following the review of SVA Qualification processes. Alternative Modification P197 seeks to refine the solution defined in the Proposed Modification to ensure that it is flexible to all the requirements of new entrants. It also excludes any requirement for Suppliers to re-Qualify and it removes the concept of Qualification limits.
Alternative Modification P197 was approved on 10 August 2006, with an Implementation Date of 23 August 2007.
