To apply to become one of our suppliers, you need to send us information about your business and what you want to supply.
We’ll review your application with Enterprise Supplier Management System (ESMS) to determine if you’re low risk or high risk. We operate ESMS in conjunction with the Achilles Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS), an industry standard for supplier pre-qualification.
We’ll contact you about any further steps you may need to take to become an approved supplier.
If you’re identified by ESMS as ‘low risk’, you don’t need to do anything else; filling in the form is all you have to do. There is no cost associated with this level of registration.
Some categories of goods and services are considered high risk and suppliers need to be registered with RISQS. This is so a thorough assessment of health and safety, quality and environmental capabilities can be undertaken before we take you on as an approved supplier.
If you’re considered high-risk, you’ll need to pay an annual subscription fee. We may also have to do a more detailed assessment of your management systems.
Just complete our short form to begin your application.
