Constructionline is a register for pre-qualified contractors and consultants used by the construction industry of the United Kingdom. The database is the largest pre-qualification database in the UK and the UK’s leading procurement and supply chain management service, containing details for over 46,000 suppliers and is accessed by more than 4,000 buyer organisations.
Achieving gold status requires additional validation checks beyond PAS 91, including 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.
An added benefit of the Constructionline Gold status is that members are assessed for SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). One of the challenges for contractors is the need to be assessed for multiple health and safety schemes, whereas Constructionline Gold validates suppliers as ‘Deemed to satisfy’ for SSIP via their health and safety specialists at Acclaim. The result being that buyers can simplify and speed up their search, validation and purchasing decision processes considerably, improving resource and cost efficiency.
The Constructionline Gold accreditation follows on from Heald renewing their SafeContractor status.
