Supplier Quality Management (SQM) is becoming an important business practice as more companies are out-sourcing manufacturing, distribution, shipping, and sales across the globe. Aside from the implications of failure to comply with a myriad of regulations, failure of SQM can lead to litigation, added costs, and harmed reputation among other problems such as product adulteration and mis-branding.
