Internal audits / 1st party
TÜV SÜD provides internal audits for the assessment of your management system. We review your company's organizational and operational structures to check whether they are in conformity with the requirements of the relevant standard. The results are documented in a report, which also highlights opportunities for improvement that enable your organization to prepare even more effectively for its certification audit.
Supplier audits / 2nd party
Our supplier audit includes a detailed analysis of your entire supply chain, ensuring sustainable transparency for companies and consumers. The second-party audit assess your supplier’s conformity to agreed requirements. Identification of gaps and opportunities for improvement is vital to professional supplier management. TÜV SÜD supplier audits can provide valuable support for the selection and evaluation of existing and new suppliers.
Process audits / VDA 6.3 & others
Based on standardized process audits, we assess the resilience and efficiency of your processes, sub-processes, and corporate systems. The results of these audits provide the basis for future decisions in your quality management. In addition to single process audits aimed at preventing and correcting process deficits, we also offer continuous improvement measures and conventional process audits, e.g. according to VDA 6.3, which assesses serial production and service processes at OEMs and automotive suppliers.
Manufacturer audits assess conformity with relevant standards for specific industries. Is there sufficient transparency in the products and licences used by the manufacturers and the communication of contractual content? With in-depth expertise on requirements that are relevant to your industry, our auditors assess all applicable aspects.
TÜV SÜD offers specific focus audits in areas such as healthcare, compliance, and service quality. Using validated research design, we perform e.g. focus audits customized to your terms of reference. All our focus audits are supported by technical experts and industry specialists from TÜV SÜD's extensive pool of experts.
