Benefits of attending

Delegates will be introduced to the SQA mechanisms available to meet recognised requirements and establish a reliable supplier base.

Delegates will acquire knowledge and skills of audit regimes and protocols relevant to supplier assurance. The practical problems associated with supplier assurance will be discussed and relevant solutions proposed. Guidance on the production of relevant documentation will be given. An introduction will be given to the emerging subject of TACCP, detailing how organisations can and must protect themselves from threats of contamination, adulteration and fraud.

This course enables delegates to develop and administer supplier quality assurance and supplier audit regimes suitable for the company.

The course will be delivered live online over the course of a day (0900 - 1700 hours), participants will be sent log in details for a WebEx Training session.
