I have been looking into how companies are performing supplier/co-man audits during the pandemic. I have not found any threads about it so I thought I would start one.
Due to the risk of our products, we only have to perform contract manufacturing audits and not for vendors. In the past it was rather easy for me to rent a car or buy a plane ticket and audit the facilities. My audits are half with documentation but I feel like I get more with walking through the facility talking to the employees. I have been pushing the audits back in hope to get them accomplished before they are needed but time is quickly running out. Upper management has now asked me look into virtual (desk) audits, so my question is:
Has anyone performed virtual (desk) audits on there suppliers/co-mans? If so, how did you do it and how did it go?
Any advice or incite on this is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
