The process of conducting an ISO 13485 supplier audit typically involves the following steps:

  1. Planning: Determine the scope and objectives of the audit, identify the suppliers to be audited, and establish a timeline for the audit.

  2. Pre-audit Preparation: Review relevant documentation, such as supplier contracts, quality agreements, and previous audit reports. Develop an audit checklist and gather any necessary audit tools or templates.

  3. On-site Audit: Visit the supplier's facility and conduct the audit according to the established checklist. This may involve interviewing personnel, reviewing records, observing processes, and assessing compliance with ISO 13485 requirements.

  4. Audit Findings: Document any non-conformities or areas of improvement identified during the audit. Classify the findings based on their severity and impact on product quality and safety.

  5. Corrective Actions: Provide the supplier with a detailed report of the audit findings and request them to develop and implement corrective actions to address any non-conformities.

  6. Follow-up: Monitor the supplier's progress in implementing corrective actions and verify their effectiveness through follow-up audits or other means of verification.

  7. Audit Closure: Once all non-conformities have been adequately addressed, close the audit and maintain records of the audit process and outcomes.
