Supplier Risk Assessment and Auditing
We offer a complete solution to supplier management or ad hoc support with specific aspects of the management programme. Whether your programme is based on self assessment information, verifying independent accreditation (such as BRC), or carrying out supplier audits will depend on a robust risk assessment and customer requirements.
A properly designed risk assessment is an essential aspect of your supplier management programme and it must include criteria which reflect the requirements of your customers and your own business. This is where our support begins. The design and content of supplier self assessment questionnaires is the next challenge. Properly constructed SSAQs can be an effective way of assessing and verifying standards at raw material suppliers.
Supplier auditing can be a drain on limited technical resource within any food business and the use of external auditors is common. Through our team of trained and experienced auditors we offer a bespoke approach ensuring audit protocols and report templates are developed to suit your business needs and audits reflect your specific concerns.
