QS9000 4.6.3 states "The supplier shall review and approve purchasing documents for adequacy of specified requirements prior to release." Is the review of "adequacy of specified requirements" a check to make sure that sections 4.6.2 (a, b, c) have been met?

Thanks for your help

Hi.

THe intent of 4.6.3 is to ensure that the purchasing documents that you use, i.e. PO's, have the required information included. That information is spelled out in 4.6.3 (a,b,c.). What we do in my company, is have an independent buyer(one other than the person who generated the PO), review it for accuracy, and then initial it as proof of review, prior to release. It is a simple, but effectie way of satisfying the standard.

Hope this helps.

The intent of the standard is ensure that the supplier has all of the information necessary to supply the item ordered correctly. The requirement is not that someone other than the buyer placing the order review it. It all depends on how you write the governing procedures. I would hesitate requiring a second person review all orders; this seems like an added cost better avoided if possible. The buyers need to be responsible for what they order. Very large dollar or complex orders might be different, but I would require that review to be done a mangement level higher.

Tom,

I concur. The standard does not require an independent review of a PO, only that the purchasing documents are reviewed prior to release. However you decide to do that is up to you, as long as it is proceduralized.

The independent review simply is how the review process is handled at my employer.
