As the number of organisations adopting the Common Assessment Standard rises, supply chain members now only need to acquire certification once from any Recognised Assessment Body. There are two certification levels available – desktop and site-based. Companies should select the appropriate level based on their industry, size, and client requirements. Once certified, companies can share their essential PQ data with other Recognised Assessment Bodies to enhance their visibility among a wider range of Contractors and Clients.

For supply chain companies seeking to streamline pre-qualification processes, it is advisable to review their existing certifications to ensure they possess the Common Assessment Standard from a single Recognised Assessment Body if necessary. Contractors or Clients not yet incorporating the Common Assessment Standard in their supply chain can reach out to Build UK for more information on how to proceed.
