For businesses operating within the construction, oil and gas, utilities, and rail sectors, it is critically important to achieve—and maintain—Achilles accreditation. Achilles supports a network of over 175,000 suppliers across these high-risk sectors by ensuring they meet or exceed the standards of more than 800 buyers across the UK who seek to minimise cost, compliance, and risk in their procurement procedures.
Businesses are held to increasingly stringent standards by stakeholders across these industries, who are tasked with ensuring their supply chains adhere to the highest calibre—not only in terms of provided value, performance, and regulatory compliance, but also in their ethical and environmental practices. By achieving Achilles accreditation, vendors working in support of these industries can demonstrate to their customers their commitment to maintaining the values demanded of them.

Frequently Asked Questions from our Customers
Yes we can, we can assist you with any of the accreditation featured on our website. We have a 100% record of securing any of the accreditation in the first audit for all our customers for the last 13 years.
More to the point, I ask clients how quickly can you start. We can have a consultant working on your accreditation within the hour if you are ready. The only things that take time are the audit dates, these are issued to the client by the certification body so it is out of our control.
This depends on how much the client has in place already. The more they have, the easier it becomes to work on their accreditation. The gap analysis that we carry out is free of charge and afterwards will give you an exact fixed price.
The fixed price will include the following –
- Carry out all the work ( creating documents & processes tailored to your company )
- Attend the audit ( as your expert consultant ) or make the desktop submission.
- Make any corrections that the auditor may highlight to ensure that you obtain your accreditation the first audit.
Initially, we need to talk to you to carry out the free gap analysis. Afterwards, we would require you to forward all the relevant documents. After that, we can complete the work with the minimum of your input, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best for the company.
Yes! Let us Manage your Accreditations with Ongoing Support and Maintenance. With us managing your accreditations, your team can then focus on business growth and development.
