We have quite a few suppliers we use at my facility and most of them use a different set of standards other than SQF. As such quite a few of our suppliers don't have 3rd party audit information. I know the code states that a register of audits of approved suppliers shall be maintained but, is it really necessary for me to travel to each location and conduct my own 3rd party audit in order to retrieve the required documentation? Our suppliers are from all over the country so I would probably be spending a good majority of my year just travelling to conduct these audits. Do any of you have any alternative solutions?
