Supply chain compliance expert, CHAS, has launched Verified Supplier, a compliance verification service which enables those supplying materials to the FM industry to showcase their commitment to operating credibly, safely and ethically.
As supply chains come under increasing scrutiny, material suppliers must confirm they are compliant with a growing list of legislation and guidelines covering health and safety, quality assurance, environmental protection and ethical practices, among others.
According to CHAS becoming a Verified Supplier is a convenient way to demonstrate compliance across a range of risk management areas via a single verification, reducing duplication of pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) and making it faster and easier to pre-qualify for contracts across the UK.
It added that as well as demonstrating a supplier’s commitment to quality practices and processes, achieving CHAS Verified Supplier helps suppliers highlight compliance with the following laws and regulations:
- UK GDPR
- Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974
- Modern Slavery Act 2015
- Environment Act 2021
- Equality Act 2010
Verified Suppliers also get access to CHAS’s growing bank of exclusive benefits, including discounted training courses, free legal advice and exclusive savings with TradePoint, Speedy Hire, Checkatrade and more, whilst clients can find verified materials suppliers quickly and easily alongside verified subcontractors via the free CHAS Client Portals.
Commenting on the launch of Verified Supplier, CHAS Managing Director Ian McKinnon said: “We are delighted to launch the CHAS Verified Supplier service and make it easier for responsible materials suppliers to highlight their credentials to potential customers.
“The launch of CHAS Verified Supplier underlines CHAS’s commitment to simplifying pre-qualification while raising risk management standards and ensuring that responsible businesses thrive.”
