Most Suppliers are certified to industry QMS standards like the ISO 9000 and the TS/IATF 16949. These certifications are easily achievable from third party certification bodies. They are positive sounding marketing tools, but they are by no means a guarantee that the supplier’s QMS is effective or actually applied. AMREP’s objectives in auditing the quality system of a supplier are:
- Checking that what is written is done
- Checking that what is done is effective
AMREP Quality System audits go beyond industry quality standards. There are additional checklists and audit parameters that we use to benchmark a supplier’s management attitudes and production control conformance to customer’s quality requirements. AMREP uses Level 2-3 qualified auditors for both ISO and other quality standards.
AMREP auditors help customers to minimise unexpected quality problems that delay delivery and increase quality and marketing costs.
