In the matter of Achilles Information Limited (“Achilles”) vs Network Rail Infrastructure Limited (“Network Rail”) case number 1298/5/7/18, we are delighted that the Competition Appeal Tribunal has found in Achilles’ favour.
Gavin Partridge, General Counsel for Achilles commented:
“We felt from the outset that we had a strong and legitimate case to bring to the Competition Appeal Tribunal, not just on behalf of Achilles, but also for the wider supplier assurance industry.
“Achilles has 30 years’ experience in offering supplier assurance across complex, regulated and safety critical industries. We believe that giving customers the potential to choose from different supplier assurance schemes can bring benefits similar to those we see in other sectors. The dynamics of a competitive market will encourage higher standards, innovation within the supply chain, and ultimately, customer choice.
“Achilles has a very longstanding relationship with the rail industry, and we look forward to working with old and new partners in this sector.”
