Second-party audits are when customers perform audits of their suppliers. A second-party audit is usually performed against the requirements of an existing contract with a supplier, or in order to assess the capacity of entering into a contract with a potential supplier.
Auditing a supplier and the supply chain in general is necessary because it helps the company to achieve compliance of the product or service it is being supplied with, and ensures that the particular product or service satisfies the requirements the company has established. Usually, companies perform these audits of their suppliers using their own resources. Despite this, it is to the company's benefit to collaborate with outside contractors who specialize in this area, because this leads to an optimization of the final results at a much lower final cost.
By monitoring and auditing suppliers, the company can ensure that quality criteria are satisfied and guaranteed, since its suppliers are obligated to meet, and constantly improve upon, the contractually defined quality characteristics of a product or service. Therefore, the company's brand is protected and enhanced, thanks to all established quality criteria being satisfied. The company's strategy, vision and values are verified along the entire supply chain, as the company's supplier network achieves expected efficiency levels and focuses on a course of continual improvement.
