What it is
The Pre-qualification audit will be completed before a supplier is engaged, and the process includes an onsite pre-qualification assessment and a background investigation supported by an online database.
Why we do it
Supplier pre-qualification processes are important for Rio Tinto because they help us identify possible risks and allow us to take mitigation measures as necessary. Prospective suppliers will receive a pre-qualification letter that outlines our expectations and highlights our engagement process.
