Can someone please share their Supplier Re-qualificattion Checklist with me? I work for a start up company, and I have to create all these documents from scratch...it is an overwhelming task, to say the least! I have already created a "New Supplier Approval Checklist", and sent that out to all our raw material and process aid suppliers, but now I need one for supplier re-qualification, as it is almost that time again!

Hi.

For the site/ Company I work for, we generally do not 're-qualify' suppliers. Our procedure (draft copy attached) is to assess each supplier and determine specific audit / audit frequency and update date this according to the specified timeframes within our procedure.

Generally we look for 3rd party certification/ accrditiation (generally BRC or equivalant) or updated Self Audit Questionnaires, maintaining a excel summary in the process (example attached) .

Hope this helps.


Regards

My company recently went through an audit and this subject was one of our hits. It is my feeling that our program is pretty good, but we got hit on not having a satisfactory was of diqualifying our suppliers if they do not pass our requirements. It looks to me that you have a well written program as well, but I don't see anything about how you disqualify your suppliers either. I'm wondering, have an auditor ever found this to be a non-conformity in your program?

I think that point is a very usual problem when the suppliers procedure is performed.  Especially, when the supplier is the only one that meets other criteria, such as economic.

Hi Clovell,

 

Surely the standard procedure is to implement an "ongoing/updating" scoring system based on received material results with defined corrective actions, eg -

 

1st corrective action below a certain score is to increase sampling frequency.

 

If this fails to increase score up to next higher level within X months, the supplier is discontinued.

 

MIL- STD-105 is the classic example.

 

And Yes, it can be tricky if you only have one supplier.

 

PS - IMEX, factory audits use the same Principle, ie re-audits.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
