IATF 16949 Clause Second Party Audits (Supplier Management)


Trusted Information Resource
If your internal auditors are not competent to perform second party audits of your suppliers, the answer is yes.

So assign purchasing people as second party auditors, assuring compliance to competence requirements stated in 7.2.4 and that's all.


I just had my Stage 1 audits and asked my auditor about this. As long as your suppliers are 3rd party certified, you do not need to perform the 2nd party audits.


Starting to get Involved
Thanks for the input. All of my suppliers are 3rd party certified. That was always a basic requirement.
