Supplier audit

Auditing and evaluating existing suppliers is becoming increasingly important for many companies. Optimisations and cost savings must also be implemented in the supply chain. Therefore, suppliers need to be constantly evolving to be effective and efficient. Increasingly high demands are placed on the purchasing and quality management of companies. Consumers and businesses demand sustainable transparency across the supply chain.

Supplier audits are based on the contractually agreed or internal specifications and rules. However, these are agreed with the supplier and scheduled.

A supplier audit serves a company to select and assess new or existing suppliers.

On this occasion, different goals and criteria for the supplier audit can be used. According to these criteria, a debit/actual comparison is determined. Weaknesses and deviations of the management system as well as potential for improvement are recorded.

Auditing and evaluation of potentially new partners also serves to qualify suppliers according to customer requirements and to stabilise the supply chain.

The Supplier Quality Verification or Control Audit can be performed either by an independent external or internal auditor.
