In today’s climate the majority of Clients are becoming more and more focused on health and safety within their supply chain.
Clients are as a minimum requiring suppliers and contractors to have accreditations or have completed a SSIP, i.e. Safecontractor, Constructionline, CHAS, or to have completed their own internal prequalification questionnaire.
This is why you may find yourselves completing or receiving several PQQ’s (Prequalification Questionniares) monthly. These are usually to be completed and submitted back even before any Tender documentation can be submitted and merely a case of being approved as a competent contractor and being added to their “approved database”.
Completion of PQQ’s and Quality Assurance (BSI – ISO)
SSS have extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to the completion of PQQ’s and/or accreditations. Our internal systems combined with the companies own management procedures and policies enable the completion of these questionnaires so that the approval can be achieved, and hopefully win that next contract.
We are finding that organisations, local authorities, governing bodies do not always award a project on a cost alone basis, an integral part of a tender being awarded is a review of the Contractors / Suppliers health and safety systems and training procedures are checked to ensure that their criteria is being met.
This teamed with the financial aspects of the proposed project will determine the successful contractor / supplier.
It is important to remember that for the majority of accreditations / PQQ’s completed evidence of the companies safety systems, training of employees, audits and inspections is provided with the overall submission.

We can offer guidance, offer support and even complete all accreditation applications, PQQ’s on your behalf to ensure that the correct application is submitted to obtain successful approval.
