Medical - Medical (general) / contrôle qualité pharmaceutique
French term or phrase: Nec-à-visu

J'ai été confronté à cette expression dans un tableau figurant dans un document intitulé "ordre d'impression", au sein d'un dossier de conditionnement (contrôle qualité pharmaceutique).

Merci de votre aide.

neutral  philgoddard: I think this may be correct - I found several instances of "faire un visu", though I'm not clear of its meaning. But your French reference doesn't support your answer - it just happens to contain the word "nécessité".
