Corrective Action template

Corrective Action Plan template using familiar Microsoft Word

Corrective Action form

Unlike the 8D Problem Solving Corrective Action Plan,

this Supplier Corrective Action Request template does not presuppose that all of the rigid formality of the 8D process will be required.

This simple Word template is structured as

a one-page letter that simply requests the supplier to deal with a non-conformance issue

If (and only if) the root cause is unknown,

then perhaps a team will be formed to apply the full 8D problem solving process.

Otherwise, your vendor is allowed more freedom to apply corrective actions using their own internal problem solving systems.

Corrective Action template

This Corrective Action Request template is written using Microsoft Word

making it easy for your leaders to edit (or replace) it with your own personalized template that might already be part of your supplier quality vendor management system.
