SSIP is committed to ensure reduction in health and safety assessment costs and bureaucracy in the supply chain, by making cross-recognition between member schemes as effective as possible.
There are currently in excess of 82,250 suppliers registered with an SSIP Member Scheme and this information is readily accessible via the SSIP Portal. The SSIP Portal is free to access and provides an easy way of finding out if a supplier holds valid certification with an SSIP member scheme and confirms compliance with the SSIP Core Criteria.
PAS91 and the SSIP Core Criteria*
A PAS is a Publicly Available Specification and PAS91 is a pre-qualification questionnaire that contains a set of standardised questions, categorised into modules.
PAS91 modules can help buyers assess compliance across supply chains. With this set of questions, buyers can determine the suitability of contractors for projects based on their compliance across several core areas of risk management.
PAS91 was sponsored by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and its development was facilitated by BSI Standards Limited and it is published under licence from the British Standards Institution.
PAS91 includes the following modules:
C1 Supplier Identity
C2 Financial information
C3 Business & Professional Standing
C4 Health & Safety
O1 Equal Opportunity & Diversity
O2 Environmental Management
O3 Quality Management
O4 Building Information Modelling (BIM)
The SSIP Core Criteria* is fully aligned with Module C4: Health and Safety (Amendment 1 November 2017) of PAS91 and also Section 4: Health and Safety of the Build UK Common Assessment Standard (Version 1.2 September 2020).
Please note whilst some of our member schemes cover further modules aligned with PAS91 the SSIP Assessment as verified on the SSIP Portal www.ssipportal.org.uk covers health and safety ONLY
