Does all of the suppliers need to integrated into the supplier list qualified of the company?

#1
Hi, Everyone,

I have a question whether all of the suppliers in our company need to integrate into the supplier list qualified, and our company has held a certificate of API Spec Q1. The type of suppliers in our company is divided into three types such as temporary suppliers, material suppliers, and testing suppliers, and so on.

Many thanks in advance!

API Q1 requires the organization to maintain a list of approved suppliers and scope of approval. API Q1 differentiates between critical and non-critical products, components, and activities; it is up to the organization to define whether something is critical or non-critical.

However, the scope of API Q1 is limited to the quality management system. Suppliers that do not affect the quality of product usually are not required to be included in the approved supplier list. Such suppliers not included in the approved supplier list might include accounting services, janitorial services, toilet paper suppliers, etc. Some suppliers are in a grey area where it is not clear whether they are required to be on the approved supplier list.
