You’ve prequalified your suppliers, now it’s time to audit their implementation.

Avetta’s supplier audit services provide visibility of how your suppliers are executing important safety procedures, and what they're doing to prevent future incidents.
With a more complete risk profile of your suppliers, you can manage risk with confidence and protect your brand.
Policies and Procedures
A supplier audit is the best way to get immediate insights into how suppliers execute safety and sustainability procedures. Our supplier audit checklist includes thorough reviews of employee manuals, training logs, on-site implementation, and sustainability practices. Custom audits can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.
The scope of a supplier audit gives you complete visibility within your supply chain that you wouldn’t get from the standard prequalification processes. Auditing suppliers helps identify and address potential areas of risk and other hard-to-see factors such as gaps in supplier quality. They help identify causes of nonconformances and delays, ensuring your supply chain is up to date on changes in safety protocols and engineering processes. You can use a supplier audit to make sure your quality standards are being met every time, which protects your hard-earned brand reputation.
Supplier quality audits have the ability to inspire real improvements if they are done correctly.
