Since its launch in May, over a thousand new businesses have registered to become SafePQQ verified, demonstrating their commitment to sustainable and ethical compliance.
Why are more businesses choosing to become SafePQQ verified?
For both private businesses and public sector organisations, there is an increasing need for greater transparency in supply chain management to ensure compliant trading practices across all aspects of their business operations. Typically, this includes financial information, environmental management, quality management, equality, modern slavery, anti-bribery and GDPR. This can be challenging to manage when employing multiple contractors.
For contractors, proving that you can meet the expected trading standards for each new contract can be costly and time-consuming. SafePQQ removes the hassle of creating, managing and collating your own pre-qualification questionnaire. This can save time, effort and money, enabling you to focus on your core business.
SafePQQ, an extension to the SafeContractor accreditation, is an online questionnaire which has been set up to provide an easy way of verifying commitment to best practice, cost-effectively and quickly, for businesses and contractors.
Built to include the common question sets aligned with PAS91, SafePQQ collects and verifies information including financials, environmental management, quality management, equality, modern slavery, anti-bribery and GDPR.
