I have a question on how to rate the level of a supplier. Currently developing a SOP and listed my supplier level as follows: Is it practicable to add a Level 3 and classify them as a conditional supplier? Any thoughts would be appreciated
- Level 1 Supplier
- Level 1 suppliers provide a product that can be fully verified through receiving inspection, additional testing, or other methods. Level 1 suppliers are required to be maintained on the Approved Supplier List
- Level 2 Supplier
- Level 2 suppliers provide a service that cannot be fully verified upon receipt, such as calibration service, consultants, shipping companies or outside laboratory services. Level 2 suppliers are required to be maintained on the Approved Supplier List.
