Apply for Inspection

Follow these steps to submit a Supply Chain Inspection application.

  1. Ensure that your facility is eligible. 
  2. Log in to your business e-Profile and apply for a Supply Chain Inspection.
  3. When the request for an e-Profile ID is approved, complete the full profile for your facility in the My Business e-Profile section. The information is needed before an inspection application can be completed.
  4. Log in to your business e-Profile and complete the Policy and Procedure (P&P) Overview document in its entirety, which can be found in the Instructions and FAQs section of e-Profile. Gather all P&Ps referenced in the document and save all files, including the completed P&P Overview. The files will be uploaded in the Supply Chain Inspection application. 
  5. Gather supporting documents for the application.
  6. Start an application by clicking the Application tile on your business e-Profile dashboard. Then select Create New Application in the top right corner of the page.
    • Select the + icon next to the Supply Chain Inspection tile and select your facility to begin the application.
    • If you are unable to proceed due to facility ineligibility, more information can be found in the Help section.
  7. Proceed through the application and submit when complete.
    • Read the Application Basics document for instructions on submitting your application.

Supply Chain Inspections typically occur within 8 weeks after we receive a complete application. An application is considered complete once payment is received and all outstanding requirements related to the application are resolved; however, the amount of time it takes to complete the supply chain inspection process varies and may be impacted by a facility’s preparedness and whether there is pending discipline.
