Partnering with the UK’s Biggest Brands to Ensure Compliance

What is CHAS?

CHAS helps clients (buyers) and contractors (suppliers) ensure compliance across the different areas of risk management, and mitigate risks across the supply chain. We offer accreditation schemes that can help businesses achieve compliance, mitigate supply chain risks and support efficient supply chain management. 

With the new Common Assessment Standard, we can review all aspects of your risk management policies in a single annual audit.  And as one of the founders of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP),  CHAS is committed to setting health and safety benchmarks that drive industries forward and make the world of work a safer place.

What We Do

Simplify the Accreditation Process
Our goal is to make it as simple as possible to gain accreditation. Our accreditation schemes are designed to help you achieve compliance in all areas of risk management using a single assessment body just once a year. CHAS is here to support you through the accreditation journey from start to finish.

Improve the Efficiency of the Pre-qualification Process
We make sure contractors can become prequalified without having to spend large amounts of time or money on the pre-qualification process. We have streamlined the pre-qualification experience with simple pre-qualification questionnaires that assess compliance and minimise repetition on renewal.

Connect Contractors and Clients
Our client portal connects prequalified contractors with clients with new projects. Contractors can grow their business using their CHAS membership by connecting with leading organisations, and clients can easily find suitable contractors for their projects based on work criteria and location.

Support Efficient Supply Chain Management
CHAS clients can benefit from supply chain matching — we will analyse your supply chain and assess your compliance against a national accreditation database. We can also help you streamline and optimise your supply chain, and all of this is completely free.

The Common Assessment Standard

CHAS Elite, also known as The Common Assessment Standard is recognised across the industry and is backed by Build UK and CECA.

As a recognised assessment body, CHAS can guide you through it, we are here to help.
