Hello! I would ask why do you want to remove them? Are you going to have any push back from your purchasing dept?

We've stopped using vendors for a variety of reasons, pricing and shipping being the most frequent. None have been removed for Food Safety issues, we just stopped ordering from them and on the next revision of your Approved Vendor List, I just make a note as "no longer a vendor" no reason noted.

I think that would work even if you had a Safety concern.

Dear Ivan,

 

(somewhat plagiaristic of post #2, apologies in advance)

 

I have encountered at least 2 common reasons to remove -

 

(1) Too expensive >> open PC >> delete name

 

(2) Supplier has generated a specific FS / non-FS problem. Either way,  the reason/consequence is probably (hopefully?) identified somewhere in yr records, eg corrective actions,  and already well-explained. So, again, open PC >> delete name. (unless you wish to give the auditor some free bones to chew over in which case add some x-references :smile: )

Kind Regards,
