Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme Audit – Pipex px® achieve Four Star Pass!

Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme Audit – Pipex px® achieve Four Star Pass!

At the end of July Pipex px® hosted an independent third Party audit from the Achilles Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS). We are proud to announce that we have been awarded a four star pass with no major or minor nonconformities found throughout the intensive two day assessment.

The RISQS Audit is designed to deliver a higher level of pre-qualification assurance for buyers within the rail sector, providing access to a suitably pre-qualified supply chain. This enables buyers’ to confidently invite to tender for project opportunities.

The RISQS Audit assessment specifically scrutinises a suppliers approach to Safety, Health, Environment, Quality and Corporate Social Responsibility. It also provides rail companies with an independent evaluation of suppliers’ management systems from an internal management system perspective, as well as a test of the application on site. This provides buyers with an advanced analysis of the suppliers existing management systems and supporting resources against industry specific risk areas.

RISQS Audit is mandatory in the following circumstances;

• Suppliers providing goods / services under certain product codes that may introduce risk onto the rail infrastructure,

• Suppliers who wish to be able to sponsor workers under the Sentinel Scheme and who require POS or RIPS accreditation and this part of the audit is carried out on behalf of Network Rail / TfL.
