(c) Change of Delivery Schedules or other Terms and Suspension of Shipments. Vendor acknowledges that Onex is purchasing the Goods pursuant to this Purchase Order to incorporate into other products for third party customers and, as such, Onex may require changes to certain terms of this Purchase Order as the requirements of its customers change or for other reasons.
Onex may therefore, from time to time, change delivery schedules or direct temporary suspension of scheduled shipments.

(a) Pre-Delivery Inspection. At Onex’s sole option, Vendor shall provide access for Onex to Vendor’s facilities at all reasonable times for such inspection, tests, and audits of the Goods prior to delivery as Onex may desire. Vendor shall, at no additional cost, provide all assistance and facilities reasonably necessary for Onex to perform the same. Neither the inspection, testing, nor auditing of any Goods, nor the failure by Onex to do so, shall constitute acceptance of the Goods or relieve Vendor from exclusive responsibility for furnishing goods in strict conformance with Onex’s specifications.
(b) Post-Delivery Inspection. Upon delivery of the Goods, Onex shall have a reasonable opportunity to inspect the Goods and verify that they conform to the Specifications. In the event that, in Onex’s judgment, the Goods or any part thereof do not conform to the requirements of the Purchase Order, Onex shall have the right to reject the Goods and exercise those remedies available to it under this Purchase Order and applicable law.

At Onex’s request, Vendor shall furnish to Onex copies of any and all reports, analyses, certificates, or other documents of any kind generated by Vendor’s quality control and assurance process with respect to the Goods. At no time shall Vendor furnish to Onex goods that have been previously rejected by Onex or any third party without disclosure of such fact to Onex.
