HSEQ® assessment method
Any Buyer (i.e. member) of the HSEQ® -cluster may intiate their needs to have any particular supplier company audited, anywhere in the world. Any supplier may also voluntarily apply for an audit. All these initiatives are being collected and allocated into a shared audit plan by the moderator and executed by an independent assessment body.
HSEQ®-assessments are based on self assessments and complemented by audits on site.
Interested buyers may particiate as appropriate. A professional lead auditor is nominated for all audits. Audit reports are stored into a web library and accessible for defined HSEQ -cluster members at all times. Reports are valid for 3 years. All suppliers are able to limit the access to their own reports from any buyer they wish, to guarantee confidential issues from leaking to undesired parties.
- HSEQ® assessment does not violate or restrict open competition defined in the EU directives. Top layers have given a valid statement of this and their statement is obtainable by interested Buyer Companies applying for membership
- Cluster members may not audit their competititors. This is about assessing suppliers.
- Although HSEQ® assessment gives a commonly accepted and trustworthy validation of a supplier company, each Cluster member makes their own decision regarding fulfillment of their requirements for a supplier working in their common workplace.
