Approving distributors as suppliers for automotive company

#1
Does anybody have the experience of approving distributors as suppliers for the automotive company?
How do you assess the QMS of such supplier without assessing the actual manufacturing site?
How do you approve the parts (PPAP)?
How do you confirm the production run? Etc.
Thanks in advance for any reply.

Start with the needs of your customers and your distributor selection criteria.

Which aspects of service performance are most important to your customers?
