WHAT IS Achilles UVDB?
UVDB is the utility industry pre-qualification system used across the UK. Working closely with key buying organisations in the sector, which includes Gas, Electric, Water and associated streams of business, this community helps them achieve the highest quality standards of supply chain assurance and includes over 65 buyers and over 7,000 suppliers.
Achilles UVDB is an independent audit of an organisation’s Safety, Health, Environment, Quality (SHEQ) management systems and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). By undertaking the assessment process, suppliers and contractors will gain a clear understanding of the industry’s compliance requirements. High risk profile suppliers or contractors providing works or services into the utilities sector will be required to complete an Achilles UVDB Verify Audit in addition to their Achilles UVDB subscription.
Subscribing to the UVDB Community enables companies to:
- Promote products and services to buyers and access tender selection opportunities.
- Complete and maintain a single pre-qualification questionnaire and, where applicable, an assessment, for key players in the utilities industry.
- Demonstrate capability to meet the industry compliance requirements through the industry pre-qualification questionnaire.
