What is a Supplier Qualification Audit?
A Supplier Qualification Audit（also called supplier evaluation audit) takes place prior to a new order with a new supplier and it is extremely important to verify the profile of your potential business partner. A supplier audit ensures that the supplier is able to provide a continuous supply of high-quality materials and services. It performs an independent assessment of your supplier’s capability, capacity, credentials, facilities, production line management, and workforce. The audit also covers the legal, operational and functional aspects of a supplier.
