Supplier Corrective Action Request Definition

A supplier corrective action request or SCAR is a formal request given to a supplier that they correct a problem and explain to you exactly how they will do so. The problem may stem from a nonconformity related to the quality of its product or service. The requesting organization may also ask the supplier to follow an eight discipline (8D) approach to discover the root cause, contain the problem, fix the issue, and identify further actions to prevent future issues.
