Non-Certification Process & Supplier Audits
Non-Certification Process Audits:
DQS Inc. Non-Certification process audits are multi-faceted; however, they have one focus, which is to provide value that is measurable for companies and organizations who wish to enhance their performance beyond the pressure of a certification or a complete assessment of the system.
Process audits are relevant for many business sectors because they can be tailored to a client’s specific needs. Some typical areas that are addressed during a non-certification process audit include:
- Product quality and process capability analysis and enhancements
- Initiation and review of process improvements
- Production planning and analysis, which improves on-time delivery of products or services
- Merger and acquisition quality assessments
- Product warranty management
- New product launches and process/facility qualifications
DQS Inc. process assessments are designed based on input from the client. We provide assistance during the planning stages using our global network of industry experts and best practices. Typical benefits include:
- Global resources for performing process audits
- Large selection of SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in a number of standard industry classifications and product standards

Companies are dependent on good business relations with their suppliers to attain added value. Therefore, transparent communication and understanding of common targets is essential. A strategic partnership with suppliers leads to the improvement of products and services as well as competitive advantages.
Recent surveys indicate that most clients would like to work with their suppliers on a long-term basis and not be burdened with re-qualifying a new supplier due to their existing supplier’s inability to meet their needs and expectations. An answer to that would be supplier audits. Some typical benefits of supplier process assessments include:
- Improved supply chain management of key suppliers, critical material and components.
- Measurable key supplier data that can be validated and is meaningful
- Process and product quality improvements
- Cost reduction
- Improved supplier feedback and relationships
