Companies in any business sector with ambition and the requirement to maintain their reputation and competitive edge via continual improvement must manage risks related to quality, information security, environment, health, safety. This applies both to the organisation itself and to agent, supplier or contractor performance who should ensure a continuous demonstration of corporate social responsibility and compliance with the relevant law.
Second party audit, is an audit of another organisational quality program not under the direct control or within the organisational structure of the auditing organisation. Second Party auditing is usually performed by the customer upon its suppliers (or potential suppliers) to determine whether or not the supplier can meet existing or proposed contractual requirements.
