What is Achilles?

Achilles is one of the world’s leading global supply chain risk management companies.

What is Achilles UVDB?

Achilles UVDB (Utilities Vendor Database) helps utility companies manage risk within their supply chain and comply with EU Procurement Legislation.

Through the industry pre-qualification questionnaire, suppliers who register with Achilles UVDB must demonstrate their capability to meet the industry and legislative requirements.

The UVDB Verify audit and assessment is undertaken independently by Achilles and provides a further rigorous assessment of a supplier’s risk, with a particularly strong focus on demonstrable compliance to Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) requirements.

Achilles accreditation is required by a number of Utilities companies and their principal contractors.

Over 30 Utilities and more than 35 of their contracting partners use the UVDB system to qualify their supply chain through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance.
