What is a Simple Quality Audit & why might you need one?

Our Simple Quality Audit is performed at the Supplier Selection stage. Having at least one Supplier Selection Audit is recommended if you are dealing with a new supplier for the first time to ensure you know who you are dealing with before you do business with them.

The Simple Quality Audit is our most popular Supplier Selection Audit for smaller companies as it is our most economical quality criteria check at the Supplier Selection stage. It includes checking the most important quality criteria per ISO 9001, and it can greatly help ensure that you choose a supplier that is right for you. A more thorough version of this audit is our Extensive Quality Audit (EQA).

What do we check during a Simple Quality Audit?
Depending upon your specific needs/requests, we can check the following:

  • The existence of a quality control system
  • Production layout and organization
  • Prevention of problems
  • Documentation verification (licenses, certificates etc.)

Where are audits performed?
We perform Simple Quality Audits at supplier factories throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Asian Pacific.
