Supplier Audits Services

What is Third Party – Supplier Audit?

PQSmitra offers supplier’s auditing services to the OEM’s / Companies / Firms that require its vendors/suppliers to be audited in accordance with the International standard or specific checklist for the supplier system requirements. Many OEMs outsourced these third-party audits to PQSmitra for transparency and better effectiveness of the auditing process.

PQSmitra offers Third party supplier audit services for various national and international standards. Such audits are termed as “Third Party Audits” as the auditor is not part of the organization and performs independent audits with a focus on supplier up-gradation.

In addition to system audits in accordance with National and International standards, PQSmitra also performs Exclusive audits as per the specific requirements stated by the organization or its customers. Audits are also performed as per the customer audit checklists.

Third-party audits are performed by qualified auditors with an approach of “value addition” rather than “a fault-finding mission”. This approach by PQSmitra offers a clear, an unbiased report which may sometimes not be possible if the audits are performed by the internal team members of the organization. These help organizations to access supplier performance and future business decisions.
