Full Marks for Reliance in Utilities Audit

21st February 2019 Reliance News

Specialist security systems integrator Reliance High-Tech has again demonstrated its continuing commitment to supply chain assurance  with 100% scores across the board in its 2019 Achilles UVDB annual audit.

Launched in 1996, Achilles UVDB (Utility Vendor Database ) is relied upon across the UK by utilities, airports and ports to pre-qualify potential suppliers, drive industry best practice, manage supply chain risk and ensure compliance with procurement regulations.

Working in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment with constantly advancing technological capabilities, and subject to ever more stringent regulatory requirements, these are key benefits for businesses and other organisations across the utilities, airports and ports sectors.

Reliance High-Tech’s 2019 Achilles UVDB audit was conducted over two days at one of the company’s Framework Water Utility client sites.

The first day of the audit scrutinised Reliance High-Tech’s management systems, while the second focused directly on performance at the client site. Both days examined four key areas – Health and Safety, environment, quality, and Corporate Social Responsibility. Reliance High-Tech scored 100% in every area on both days.

John Owen, Operations Director at Reliance High-Tech, commented, “The audit demonstrates continued improvement and maturity across our management systems and EH&S management. This is a great achievement for all of the Reliance team”.
