Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s) / Warranty costs
English term or phrase: quality escape
Este término aparece en una de las definiciones de requisitos de un contrato. La verdad es que no imagino cuál puede ser el significado.

Contexto:
"Quality escape," as used in this clause, means the SubContractor, or any of its subcontractors:
(1) failed to detect a nonconformance or failed to follow command media; and
(2) said nonconformance or failure to follow command media could adversely affect the performance of a component, subsystem or system; and
(3) requires an action by the Seller to bring said item back to compliance with applicable specification requirements.
(b) The rights and remedies afforded Buyer and Seller under this clause are in addition to any other provision of this contract.
(c) Seller may make an equitable reduction in any item performance incentive fee previously paid under the contract, or payable in the current fiscal year, if at any time during the term of this contract, including pre-acceptance or post-acceptance of any item or service required to be delivered or performed under this contract...
