Hello all, today I'm working on supplier qualification programs, and I have some questions that are too mundane, I feel, to ask my coworkers or mentors.
So I'm looking at a supplier questionnaire...
Is there a reason why companies ask about square footage of your company/facility? It doesn't seem to be relevant to any regulation I've read (so far).
So I'm looking at approved supplier lists...
Can anyone interpret this text and spell out for me what it is asking from me? "The source of manufacture of a product or sub-component shall be identified and indicate whether the product or any sub-component thereof is self-manufactured, contract manufactured (including any toll processes) or brokered."
As I understand it: In an approved supplier list, the products my company makes, as well as the products (which are ingredients in my product) of other companies should be included in an approved supplier list, which has appended information stating -
Therefore, my follow up question is...
Why do I need to include my own products in an approved supplier list? Am I meant to approve my own supply?
Thanks for any input you choose to share.
