We assess and audit our critical suppliers. To ensure continuous supply to our customers and patients, we monitor the financial health of our suppliers, conduct quality compliance audits of third parties, and participate in various supply chain security programmes around the globe.
AbbVie continuously evaluates available programmes as part of our commitment to ensure the security of the supply chain and the ability to deliver medicines and products to patients. Participation in these programmes requires AbbVie to work jointly with critical suppliers to perform risk assessments, and where required, we support those suppliers in developing business continuity plans to ensure security processes and procedures that protect the integrity of the supply chain are in place.
Our technology platform allows us to evaluate risk across a number of critical domains, develop and implement risk mitigation plans, monitor our suppliers’ performance, and manage potential disruptions to our supply chain.
