Changes to Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Certification – Feb 2020

http://www.ssip.org.uk

We wish to bring to your attention, changes being implemented from May 1st, 2020, regarding Safe-T-Cert ROI and its clients.

This only effects those companies operating in the United Kingdom

Following a review by the SSIP in December 2019, to the agreement between Safe-T-Cert ROI and SSIP, the following will apply;

  1. In order to achieve SSIP recognition, an audit must be carried out against the requirements of the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales) & Northern Ireland – i.e. reviewing the associated documentation for the jurisdiction(s) where CDM regulations are applicable.
  2. To be successful in this audit and listed on the SSIP portal, companies must be able to demonstrate clear compliance with the “Core Criteria” – see appendix 1 of SSIP Rules & Bylaws (https://ssip.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/RB-Issue-8.10-Website.pdf)
  3. Due to administrative changes required, an extra fee of €150 plus VAT will be chargeable for SSIP certification additional to the standard Safe-T-Cert fees.
  4. No changes will apply to Safe-T-Cert clients who do not require SSIP recognition – i.e. do not operate in United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales) & Northern Ireland.
  5. Should you wish to exclude SSIP initially, and then upgrade prior to subsequent audit, this can be completed by conducting a desktop review, and an extra fee of €250 plus VAT will be chargeable.

If you have any queries relating to the above, please contact the undersigned;
