Establish and Maintain an Effective Supplier Qualification Program
FDA considers the supplier as an extension of your operation. You are liable for supplier’s conduct (as it relates to your product). FDA will deal with your company in case of product failure, especially as related to end user or patient safety concerns.
FDA has the right to see certain elements of your supplier qualification/supplier risk management/purchasing controls related proof, i.e., the documentation.

Document this evaluation or assessment and define the type and extent of control to be exercised based on the evaluation results.
