Validate The Strength Of Your Supply Chain
In recent years, competitive pressures, globalization and increasingly discerning consumers have forced retail corporations to increase the number of suppliers they work with. Thus large national and international supply chains have become a central part of an organization’s operational strategy because of key advantages of labor, quality, and logistics. However, it is recognized that with these advantages come risks. These risks are associated with social, environmental, health & safety and product quality/safety factors. Being proactive in improving supply chain performance requires evaluation of processes and procedures, measuring the results in order to better react to risk, monitor market signals and facilitate continuous improvement.
What is a 2nd party audit?
A second-party audit occurs when an organization audits their suppliers, or their own facilities, to their own proprietary requirements and codes of practices. The audit process helps the organization to avoid the risk of product recall, service failure, or compliance issues by finding and correcting problems before they affect the customer or end user.
