Celebrations! - our highest Achilles-UVDB score yet..
By Joanna Robinson
We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve passed our audit for the 7th successive year with our highest score yet – a satisfying overall 94%. A couple of minor non-compliances kept us off the 100% mark - but we’re already on the case to see if we can eliminate these immediately.
'Achilles' is a complex and thorough pre-qualification process which verifies our ISO Quality procedures, our Health and Safety record and also our environmental qualifications amongst other criteria.
It aims to streamline the pre-qualification process for major buyers including the UK Utilities we are regular suppliers to - such as EDF. Its aim is to match suppliers with relevant buyers in an independent, collaborative and neutral manner.
Successful completion by FlexEJ keeps us in front of major potential customers; we’re already looking at some challenging and exciting prospects in the year ahead.
PS: For those who don’t know, ‘UVDB’ stands for ‘Utility Vendor Data Base’ .
