We have a supplier for medical device (Stain kits). They are actually our Contract Manufacturer and make these kits for us and put our company label on it. Then, the kits get deliver to us for us to ship to our customers. We don't do any final QC on these products and don't even open the packaging at all. Now, it came up in our ISO Pre-audit that we do need to audit this supplier on a regular basis because of the severity of the risk. Specially because that company is only ISO 9001. We have never audited them but just have supplier check list. Our CEO wants to cut costs and doesn't want us to perform this audit, which is in another state and he thinks travel time and cost are worthless. Now, he is forcing me to do this remotely. Will remote audit with documented report be sufficient for ISO 13485 auditor?
