Gold Membership requires a number of further validation checks which are of interest to many buyers using an enhanced pre-qualification questionnaire that goes beyond PAS91.
Constructionline assesses a company’s credentials for environmental management, quality management, equal opportunities, modern slavery act adherence and anti-bribery and corruption policies. Some of these policies form part of the Cabinet Office Selection Questionnaire (SQ), which the public sector is expected to comply with.
As well as enhanced prequalification, all Gold members are assessed for SSIP. Constructionline’s Acclaim team is accredited to assess and award ‘Deemed to Satisfy’ SSIP (Safety Schemes In Procurement) certificates for health and safety – something that all construction buyers look for in supplier selection.
SSIP was developed as an umbrella body to give confidence to Buyers that their suppliers have been assessed to the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 as well as the SSIP core criteria.
