Dana suppliers are expected to demonstrate their commitment to excellence in every
aspect of their performance in the global vehicular supply chain. This Supplier Quality and
Development Manual (“Manual”) is designed to set forth many of the expectations and requirements
that Dana has of its suppliers. Our business relationship will be based on the requirements set
forth in this manual as well as the contract or purchase order terms and conditions that are
specific to your transaction(s) with Dana. In the event of any inconsistency between this manual
and the specific contract or Dana’s purchase order terms and conditions, the contract or purchase
order will control.
To meet our customers’ world-class expectations, Dana has established appropriate standards
to ensure the quality of our products and the integrity of our operations.
This Manual is the quality standard for every Dana supplier worldwide. This common global Manual allows
Dana to evaluate all suppliers across all product groups around the world based on common expectations
and performance standards.
This Manual supersedes all other prior versions and this
version is the only officially
recognized release of this document.
