German term or phrase: Fremdbehandlung
Context is quality checks on goods and services. One procedure applies to raw materials etc and another to 'Fremdbehandlung' heat treatment etc - does this mean sub-contracted processes?

English translation:yes, but
Explanation:
I am convinced it does but whether to use "sub-contracted processing" or "third-party processing" or "outside processing" or "sub-contracted treatment" or "third-party treatment" or "outside treatment", maybe someone else can help.

Explanation:
(To expand Dan's good list a bit...)

Oddly, on AltaVista, >>Fremdbehandlung<< yielded 14 pages, but all related to healthcare, particularly alternative medicine.
