Simplify SSAQ & Food Safety Questionnaire Management
Simplify the Management Process:
Driving any step-change improvement needs a fully integrated system of Food Safety Questionnaire Management. Whatever the size of your business, you will already be taking reasonable precautions to meet the current food safety requirements.
The Role of Supplier Self Audit Questionnaires (SSAQ)
Supplier Self Audit Questionnaire (SSAQ) or food safety questionnaires can help you to deliver a robust supply chain risk assessment program, but consider carefully the inherent weaknesses and risks, or you could end up drowning in paper rather than delivering results.
Supplier self-assessment is just one of the tools in your integrated supplier management program, which is most effective when used selectively and carefully. Having an effective process means critically reviewing the information you receive, and making challenges wherever you have doubts.
This will result in a well-structured on-site audit program, complementing your supplier self-assessments. All suppliers should be aware that their self-assessments will be reviewed throughout the various audit programmes and the possible consequences of missing information or providing incorrect information.
