Are Your Suppliers Qualified? Prove It-Webinar Recording reviews best practices for evaluating a Supplier, qualifying suppliers and much more.
Every manufacturer in the healthcare industry is required to document the qualification of suppliers and the ongoing evaluation of those suppliers. Unfortunately, many companies manage to expend a lot of resources and get zero value from their efforts.
Supplier qualification and evaluation should not be a necessary evil for the sake of regulatory compliance. These activities should be strategic. The supplier quality activities should be cross-functional and be a source of competitive advantage for manufacturers.
Auditors always claim to “add value.” How many supplier audits actually do this?
There are no specific rules and regulations on how supplier qualification and evaluation is done. The only requirement is that your company shall have a procedure, do it and keep records. If you really want a gold star, your process should be risk-based.
There are dozens of popular tools that are recycled throughout this industry—such as the all mighty “Supplier Survey” and the requirement for ISO Certification. Don’t recycle these tools. Develop your own tools that are specific to your company’s needs.
