The onsite supplier audit was conducted by Longhua, Nanhai, Ningbo and Nanjing plant sites on 15 suppliers, and a total of 190 nonconformities were detected. In order to effectively assist suppliers in making improvements and in enhancing their performance in SER management, responsible personnel were sent to suppliers to help develop the management mechanism and determine improvement targets, so as to promote the value of the entire supply chain.
In 2011, the SER risk assessment will be conducted on the top two key part and component suppliers in trading volume. Onsite audits will be arranged for suppliers with medium to high risk, aiming to review the SER management of over 90% of suppliers.
