Global supply chain risk management company Achilles launched the new RISQS audit programme last year. Achilles describes its aim as “to provide a fair, open and transparent third party qualification process, with the aim of becoming the preferred route for suppliers to engage with their customers, in an efficient and effective manner”.
Sentinel coordinator John Holland, who represented RSK during the audit, comments, “This was the first audit under RISQS. However, at the last Link-up Engage audit RSK received a four star rating, which it has maintained this during the most recent audit.”
RSK SHEQ director, Ross Chattaway, adds, “The RISQS scheme supports Network Rail, LUL/Transport for London and other main infrastructure contractors. This audit, during which no nonconformities were raised, prequalifies us to work with more than 110 buying organisations.”
