Vendor Audit


Vendor Audit

 


 

The need to conduct vendor audits stems from a higher need for quality control in an industry that needs to be more regulated than any other industry in the world. This need for a closer monitoring of a vendor's qualities and practices stems from an ever-evolving quality control market, and an industry where quality products are a necessity, not a luxury.

 

The primary areas that need to be evaluated in a vendor audit are vendor viability, management responsibility, system accuracy, and data integrity. The main objectives for a vendor audit are to assess the quality management of the whole organization, through its procedures and data processes. It is an assessment of quality control measures taken by the vendor to assure that their products and services are acceptable for business transaction.

 

At APACSS, vendor audit service is aimed at customers that require enhanced traceability and quality confirmation of suppliers for their manufacturing process and are designed to increase customer’s confidence through supplier validation. We evaluate vendors on multiple critical parameters to ensure quality delivered to them. We also undertake cGMP audits which cover qualification audit, follow-up audit, project audit and internal audit.
