What To Know

Supplier Corrective Action Report or SCAR preparation is a meticulous and technical process. I3 Infotek compliance documentation specialists can manage all aspects of a potential or confirmed supplier failure. We know what is required to get production back on track.

If a supplier is showing multiple defects, it may be time to issue a SCAR. The SCAR puts the supplier on notice and acknowledges that the issue is serious enough that all parties need to take formal steps to resolve and record all steps taken to rectify the issue. A pre-SCAR investigation with a qualified engineer checking your internal design files is wise—the source of the anomaly could be a design specification error to be corrected in-house.
