Quality control and contract specifications compliance is an important part of the supply chain process, whether it relates to quality of raw materials and parts, quality inspections during the manufacturing process, or quality checks before goods are despatched to the customer.
It is crucial that critical suppliers are controlled to ensure these subcontractor processes meet relevant standards and regulations. Suppliers impact quality at the root level and supplier audits will improve organizational processes and address quality at this root level, to avoid encountering the same challenges multiple times, resulting in delays and additional costs.

ICCASA Auditors will verify that your suppliers/subcontractors are meeting these important quality requirements. These requirements may include special control over certain processes, requirements on traceability of parts, requirements for special cleanliness standards, requirements for specific documentation, etc.
These audits can be done on-site by reviewing the processes in addition to off-site review of documents submitted by the supplier. It is important to understand that a second-party audit is between the customer and the supplier and has nothing to do with becoming certified.
