I would like someone to guide me on how to close a nonconformity related to Raw material supplier assessment.

most of the times whenever I have an audit the AUDITOR wants to see how I assessed the RM supplier and the approval method used.

These materials are sometimes purchased from middle men and in most cases the best you can get is MSDS but it does not fulfill the criteria of approval not even assessment. those who are conversant with the process of evaluating suppliers please help me.

Tell the middle men that you need info that can only come from the source - doesn't matter if the middle guy provides all that you need or the source does - either way you have to get it.
