Hi

Has anyone else found that Companies are forcing you to JOIN Accreditation Schemes that they have, even though you hold a different one and are SSIP accredited ?

Not naming the companies in the UK, but its a game ! not a good one as its getting expensive now !

Accreditations used to be a few hundred pounds now many thousands and its wrong that you have to have several in place when a Company wont accept your current Accreditation and SSIP certification because it doesnt match theirs !!!

Any thoughts !!

Not a good situation as its costing us more money against a current or future contract etc

Its like a bribe etc got to give to get !! thats totally wrong !!

They may do it in the Middle East etc but its the UK

Probably because ISO9001 is a quality management system certification and SSIP is an occupational health and safety certification. These two certifications/accreditation's are focused on two completely different areas.

Is it as expensive as not doing it at all? What you're talking about are nothing more than business decisions involving investment and risk with the question being (it's binary) "Is the investment worth the risk of not making it? YES or NO
