About the Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) Forum
Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) was founded in May 2009 following the Government report on Accelerating the SME economic engine: through transparent, simple and strategic procurement. Supported by the HSE, SSIP aims to streamline prequalification and encourage straightforward mutual recognition between its Member Schemes.
All assessments completed by our Member Schemes (in Sychem’s case CHAS) are completed utilising the SSIP Core Criteria, which is aligned to the Government-backed construction prequalification document PAS 91, ensuring consistency within the supply chain management.
