“Having a KGA Consumer Goods Regulatory Audit program in place, assures you a green light as you pass throught product safety test with a smile.”
All companies want to grow and expect their suppliers to grow with them. You are in the business of growth and increase. Companies who take the most risks grow the most, but not without a new set of consequences. As you add suppliers you run the risk of inadequate quality control and components that are subpar to your high standards. With proper oversight and control you are assured the quality you expect to deliver to consumers as well as avoid unnecessary financial challenges that could damage your reputation and bottom line.
The money you invest in supplier audits will pay itself back many times over by preventing serious problems early enough in the production stage and ensure your quality is consistent and trusted. The purpose of an audit is to identify any noncompliant materials or practices and will guide you through a plan of conformance to industry standards. These plans are put together to smooth out and refine your process as well as making sure you are always within guideline parameters.
You should have these supplier guides in place to ensure documentation and execution are properly recorded and archived so that supplier approvals can be verified during the auditing process.
Every part of an assembly has a history and a life of its own that needs to be traced throughout its maturation. Our audits will detect any gaps in the supplier’s quality procedures which in turn helps manufacturers to fix any nonconformances or deviations early enough to avoid delays. The purpose of a supplier audit gives definition to quality objectives and brings high-quality goods to market. This principle goes back to the adage, an ounce of prevention. Preventing problems before they occur is less costly than trying to repair the damage done afterwards.
