We are proud to announce that Sportsafe is the first company in the UK that specialises in the inspection, supply and installation of sports, play and fitness equipment to have been awarded Constructionline Gold Membership.
Who are Constructionline?
Constructionline are the UK’s leading provider of third-party, technology-enabled qualification and accreditation services, playing a critical role in the procurement value chain. Constructionline collect, assess and monitor over 30 million pieces of information, from more than 45,000 suppliers through a PAS 91:2013+A1 2017 aligned question set, the standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by BSI to reduce duplication within the construction industry.
Their aim is to provide efficiency savings and opportunities to Suppliers working with public and private sector Buyers within the construction industry. They do this by providing a single source of accreditation, streamlining procurement procedures and improving the supply chain management processes, reducing risk and helping Suppliers work more easily and efficiently with Buyers.
What is Gold Membership?
Constructionline’s most popular membership, Gold, opens up greater opportunities within the industry by verifying eligible businesses to PAS 91 and the Common Assessment Standard.
Being Gold verified is of interest to many Buyers registered on Contractionline, with Gold membership including further validation checks using an enhanced prequalification questionnaire that goes beyond PAS 91.
Constructionline assessed Sportsafe’s credentials for environmental management, quality management, equal opportunities, modern slavery act adherence and anti-bribery and corruption policies. Some of these policies form part of the Cabinet Office Selection Questionnaire (SQ), which the public sector is expected to comply with.
Gold membership also includes an SSIP from Acclaim Accreditation, allowing us to manage our PAS 91, Common Assessment Standard and SSIP data all in one platform, with one renewal date, removing the need to complete multiple assessments.
