Remote Risk Assessment

Monitoring your Supply Chain

Remote Risk Assessment

If you have hundreds or even thousands of suppliers across the globe, doing on-site assessments is a daunting task. With our Remote Risk Assessment (RRA), you don’t need to: the online gap assessment provides a risk rating for all participating suppliers, giving you an indication of where to focus on-site audits.

 Doing supplier risk assessments remotely enables you to prioritize those suppliers with a higher risk rating. It also enables you to respond swiftly to changing market situations, issues and crises.

What the risk rating means

Unlike many other risk ratings, our solution focuses on circumstances that are particular to the supplier in question. We believe that external factors, such as general risk ratings per country or industry sector, are less significant than factors that are specific to the supplier.

Validation of Risk Rating

The problem with many online risk ratings are that they are not validated. Not so for the DQS remote solutions: our auditors assess a sample of the supplier base to review whether the results in the field match the outcome of the online risk assessment. This provides a superior level of assurance.
