During a recent Utilities Vendor Database (UVDB) Verify audit conducted by Achilles, RWG achieved a 100% score across key supply chain risk areas including Quality, Health & Safety and the Environment.
The Achilles UVDB Verify audit is a final element of a four stage assessment model used to validate organisational management systems of pre-qualified suppliers. UVDB Verify audits offer a tailored scope and protocol specifically to meet the needs of industry buyers and their communities.
“Being part of the Achilles community is a source of competitive advantage for our business”, stated Mark Forsyth, RWG’s Industrial & Marine Business Director. “The UVDB Verify audit is a rigorous process, testing both the quality of our management systems and how effective these are in practice. This independent, fair and transparent process cuts through marketing hype, providing the buying community with an accurate assessment of a supplier’s capability and competence”.
David Niven, RWG’s Head of Operational Integrity commented, “We’re delighted with the result of this audit and excellent feedback from our UVDB Verify assessor. This two day process provided a great opportunity to challenge RWG’s management systems and demonstrate how these are used to ensure compliance in our day-to-day business. To be awarded a 100% score is a significant achievement for RWG, providing customers with hard evidence of our commitment to Quality, Health & Safety and the Environment”.
