What is the purpose of a supplier audit?

Rating: +0

Positive Negative

The purpose of the supplier audit is for the purchaser to check if:
• The supplier has a quality system
• The supplier follows his quality system
• If the quality system is adequate for the purchaser
While the first two are relatively easy to check, the third requires a bit more experience as well as a good knowledge of quality systems and understanding that they may achieve the same even if they are different from what the auditor is used to.
