Acclaim and SSIP
Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) was developed to help buyers reduce duplication when looking for suppliers. If you have a valid SSIP certificate then a buyer knows that you have been 3rd party assessed and they know the standard that the assessment adhered too.
Once you have one SSIP you don’t need to complete the forms for the rest you can deem to satisfy using the process that is set out.
Acclaim is the SSIP qualification that is available through Constructionline
The benefits of Acclaim Accreditation include:
- It is available to all industries and is not just Construction specific
- Assessment fees are based on your turnover so the fee is affordable
- Only 12 questions to answer
- SSIP membership
If you have a valid SSIP certificate you can use this as part of constructionline as well. If you are looking for any advice please get in touch.
