The construction sector is one of the biggest in the UK economy, employing about 3.1 million people or more than 9% of the entire workforce. So Clients can identify competent and compliant contractors, material supplier, and consultants many require their supply chain to have Constructionline accreditation.
What Is Constructionline?
Constructionline is an assessment scheme for consultants, contractors, and material suppliers to the UK’s construction industry. Buyers use this platform to seek companies that can demonstrate their compliance across a range of business compliance issues. Constructionline is used by more than 2,000 buyers, including local authorities, main contractors, and the central government, and there are about 46,000 suppliers on the register.
Constructionline is based on the document Construction Pre-Qualification Questions, also known as PAS91 Common Assessment Standard, with the purpose that holding Constructionline qualification allows suppliers to avoid lengthy and repetitive pre-qualification questionnaires for different customers. This way, everyone can save time and money.
