Welcome to the Clear Align supply base. This guide introduces you to working collaboratively with Clear Align. As part of continuous improvement, we want to make it easier access, improved efficiencies, increased information accuracy and enhanced communications to ensure that doing business with us is as simple as possible. As a small business our goal is to find ways to improve working together.
Quality Systems and On Time Delivery
To become a qualified supplier AS9100D certification, ISO 9000 certification or a successful Clear Align audit is now required to show objective evidence of compliance with AS9100D quality standard and help us understand and mitigate risk. We may also review on-time delivery record with your key customers.
All suppliers are reviewed annually for quality and on time delivery. Key suppliers may request a copy of the annual report card from our quality department. Each supplier is required to exceed 95% for both on time delivery and quality. Premier suppliers operate above 99% for quality and delivery and receive benefits from that status.
Clear Align now requires invoices to be submitted electronically via email. Invoices can no longer be submitted via U.S. mail, fax, or overnight mail. See your purchase order or supply chain specialist for details.
