Re: ISO 9001 - 9.3.2 c) 7 is answer for 8.4.1? Performance of external suppliers

How do you evaluate your suppliers? Does it include only supplier visits to check whether it has the capacity and capability to perform good (Potential capability) or actual performance of the supplier is also being considered during these evaluations?

If performance of the supplier is also being considered as a part of evaluations, then these evaluations can be input to your management review.

Otherwise you can have different criteria such as monitoring quality performance of suppliers, worst 5 / top 5 suppliers can be determined during these performance monitoring. IMHO, I wouldn't recommend monitoring suppliers only based on Quality. Other parameters such as Delivery, Premium freight, customer disruptions, etc. to be included. Again inclusion of these parameters depends upon risk assessment, if these parameters doesn't affect your organization / suppliers are meeting them already / of less risk, then you can go with Quality only. This supplier performance can be input to your Management review leading towards actions for improving supplier performance / awarding business to best suppliers, etc.
