Achilles UVDB Verify Category B2 accreditation for Pure Air Solutions

Heerenveen | 25-08-2016

Pure Air Solutions is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an Achilles UVDB Verify Category B2 accreditation. The accreditation allows us to pre-qualify as an approved and preferred supplier to the utilities (water & energy) sector, a process that makes it easier for companies in the sector to manage their supply chain risks and to comply with EU procurement regulations.

The accreditation was granted on the basis of a rigorous independent audit at our assembly centre in Hilvarenbeek (The Netherlands), during which the company’s Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) management systems were evaluated. This was followed by a review at a working site to determine how well these systems are being implemented and therefore also identified the internal engagement of these systems within the Company. And we are delighted with our scores!

In the on-site audit of our practices and procedures we achieved:

  • 100% for Quality
  • 100% for Environment
  • 98% for Health & Safety.

In the in-house management system evaluation we achieved:

  • 83% for Quality
  • 79% for Environmental
  • 92% for Health & Safety.

“This is a landmark moment for us,” said Bart Smit, Operations Director of Pure Air Solutions. “We are particularly pleased with the on-site assessment, as we see QHSE as an integral part of all our projects and processes." Pure Air Solutions is committed to meeting the standards for contractors and suppliers who work on operational sites that are owned or controlled by the utilities. When companies in the utilities sector are looking for trustworthy, reliable partners they look for Achilles accreditation. Pure Air Solutions has now strengthened its credentials as a preferred supplier to utilities providers with the UVDB Verify B2 audit certificate. "The company has retained its accreditation with an excellent 99% overall score for the implementation of our management systems during the external operational site review", added Bart Smit, which is a huge complement to our team and supply chain partners.
