Looking for some assistance on adding verbiage to an already existing supplier approval policy around how to offboard or disengage a current approved supplier. Interested in factors others sites have considered in this "offboarding" process.  As always, insight into what others have done is greatly appreciated. This would need to align with BRC food safety v8 and is for a not ready to drink beverage facility. One of the factors I'm currently considering include timeframe between purchases - basically we purchase on annual contracts so an excess of a  3 year timeframe between purchases from an previously approved supplier would require reapproval of said supplier. Thank you~

Hi there,

As well as a current 'Approved Supplier List/Register' I would be keeping records of previous suppliers with a note of why they are currently not used, such instances may be;

- Delisted for poor quality

- Delisted for poor service

- Replaced by new supplier, more competitive price

- Replaced by new supplier, unable to meet site increase in quantity of material requirements

That way when you come back to Supplier Approval for a previous supplier you can see if there were any issues of concern or it was merely a commercial decision to change supplier etc.

Hope that makes sense.

Kind regards,
