Find the Right Community for You





For FMCG organisations we have refined our established supplier qualification solutions to reflect the importance that Responsible Sourcing (RS) and Supplier Quality Assurance (SQA) have within the sector.

Our supplier pre-qualification solutions cover information and compliance relating to specific sites/locations of operation.

The initial stage of our process is the managed contact and registration of your suppliers to gather basic supplier information on products supplied, countries of operation, size etc, which are used to allocate an initial risk profile.

Depending upon the buying organisation's procurement policies and risk profile model, some suppliers may be required to undergo a more detailed questionnaire which is evaluated by Achilles assessors.

We can, if required by our clients, configure our solutions to work in concert with other supplier validation programmes they may operate. For example, assisting our clients’ suppliers in completing SEDEX registrations and facilitating programmes for both Quality and SEDEX Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ).

Our qualified auditors undertake supplier quality audits and can also administer Responsible Sourcing SMETA audits on behalf of buyer organisations – reflecting specific criteria within the client's risk model.
