Supplier Self Assessment

Supplier Self Assessment Document

Supplier Self AssessmentDon’t let a preventable quality control issue put you out of business!

Any business owner knows that product quality is essential to success. After all, no one wants to buy a defective product, and even a single quality control issue can damage a company’s reputation. That’s why it’s so important to have a strong quality control plan in place. One way to do this is to require suppliers to complete a self-assessment before sending goods.

This Form outlines all product quality expectations and puts the supplier responsible for checking the goods against these criteria.


Explain what you Expect

If you don’t take the time to explain your needs and expectations, you’re likely to end up with a subpar product. This is especially true when working with Chinese suppliers, who may not be familiar with Western requirements. Therefore, it’s essential to take the time to explain why you need the product to be produced in a certain way; else, they may conclude that they know better than you do. By taking the time to communicate your needs clearly, you can help ensure that your products are made to your specifications.


When to use this Form?

Introduce this Form during the negotiation phase to make your supplier clear on what you want early in the relationship.

By doing so, you’ll avoid many price increases Chinese suppliers impose along the way as they hear about your expectations, many of which were so obvious you thought they didn’t require mentioning!

Then, when your supplier has produced your goods, have him complete the Form and fax it to you before shipping goods, so you can approve delivery or not.


How does it work?

The Supplier Self Assessment sets out all aspects of the product to ensure every element is as it should be before shipping. It also enables the supplier to document his efficiency in an easy-to-follow form.

The Agreement is delivered in Word format so that it can be customised to suit your product’s requirements.

It also includes the Chinese translation to minimise the risk of any misunderstandings.
