PAS 91:2013+A1:2017 is a standard question set that buyers of your products or services may use to assess your business capability across a range of topics including supplier identity, financial information, business and professional standing, health and safety, equal opportunities and diversity, quality, environmental management, and building information modelling (BIM). The question set does not include project-specific questions but is designed to assist the buyer or client to determine if your business is capable of generally being compliant with relevant standards and legislation.

How does this relate to SafeContractor and SafePQQ accreditation?


The main aims of PAS 91 are to reduce bureaucracy and prevent duplication. As SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification are obtained from expert assessment teams, buyers and clients recognise that they meet all the requirements of PAS 91. SafeContractor covers the health and safety module of PAS 91 as well as the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSiP) core criteria. SafePQQ is aligned to PAS 91 and covers the key questions within the other PAS 91 modules.
