RISQS accreditation

26th October 2015

We’ve recently supported another of our retained clients through their RISQS audit. RISQS (the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme) accreditation is a pre-requisite if you wish to sponsor staff to carry out work on the London Underground or within Network Rail’s controlled infrastructure.

We have a number of retained clients who we supported through their initial accreditation and whom we continue to support  through the annual audits to ensure they maintain their status. That said, one of our clients recently achieved their second consecutive four-star rating and a repeat of this next year will see their audit frequency (and therefore associated costs, too!) reduced.

RISQS accreditation lets buyers know that an organisation meets industry standards and opens the door to being included on approved supplier lists.

If you have an interest in working in this area we could help you by supporting and coaching you through the process. We have a wealth of experience in successfully navigating the process with our clients and can help by advising what is required and producing the necessary management systems.

We can also assist with other Achilles accreditations, including UVDB and Building Confidence. Please call Susan on 0845 5022 418 (option 1) for further details.
