Approved Supplier List (ASL)

« Back to Glossary Index

Approved Supplier List (ASL) is a list of suppliers or vendors who have been pre-approved by an organization or company to provide goods or services that meet specific quality requirements. ASLs are often used in regulated industries such as medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and aerospace to ensure that the products or services provided meet the required standards and regulations. Companies typically evaluate and audit potential suppliers before adding them to the ASL and regularly review and update the list to maintain the quality of their products or services. Using an ASL can help organizations streamline their procurement process and reduce the risk of receiving non-conforming products or services.
