Join CHAS as a Client

Over 1,000 clients are using the free CHAS supply chain management service to find approved contractors for projects, check the health and safety status of prospective workers and monitor and mitigate supply chain risk.

Stay in full control of your supply chain and ensure the compliance of every contractor working for you. As a CHAS client, you gain full access to our list of approved contractors and can view their compliance information at a glance. All CHAS-approved contractors are in possession of health and safety certification at a minimum, if not full Common Assessment Standard accreditation, and are pre-qualified for safety-critical tasks. Our free pre-qualification and screening service saves you time and money, making it easy to find the right contractor for the job, flag any potential concerns and monitor the compliance of contractors over time.

Join for free today and start shielding your organisation from risk. You’ll be in good company — many clients already use CHAS to manage their supply chain and demonstrate legislative compliance, from local authority, care and housing association firms to construction, house builder and utility companies.

The New CHAS Common Assessment Standard

CHAS is proud to introduce the Common Assessment Standard, a new pre-qualification (PQ) system designed to make managing construction compliance simpler, easier and faster for contractors and clients alike.

Developed in conjunction with Build UK and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), the Common Assessment Standard is based on existing PQ questionnaires, including PAS 91, and covers 10 key areas assessed using both desktop and site-based assessment standards.

There’s no longer any need for contractors to waste time and resources completing multiple pre-qualification assessments with inconsistent requirements. The new Common Assessment Standard requires only a single annual audit to ensure your compliance all year round.

Sign up as a CHAS member now and gain your accreditation under the Common Assessment Standard to pre-qualify for contracts with over 1,000 registered clients.
