For buyers

Any Buyer can contact the Moderator for Vendor/Supplier audits according to the HSEQ®-method anywhere in the world. Please contact the Moderator for more information.

Buyers that are interested in Benchmarking, learning and sharing knowledge with each other are welcome as Members of the Cluster.

This requires acceptance of the Membership rules and the Code of Conduct. These arrangements mitigate effectively the risks regarding the EU Competition law, as they are embedded in the moderation agreement with the Moderator.

Members of the HSEQ®-cluster may initiate their needs to have any particular Vendor/Supplier audited:

In case Members seek need second party (private) audits, each HSEQ® audit will be planned separately with the moderator. Members can use the generic HSEQ®-questionnaire or modify the scope with less or more criteria. Buyer specific criteria will be added as an appendix, but the generic criteria can be used to compare Vendors/Suppliers across categories.

In case Members seek for validated third party HSEQ® information, they may freely view, compare and download audit results from the common database.

In case a particular Vendor/Supplier is not yet in the database, Members can add interesting Vendors/Suppliers into the Common audit plan and join the audit when it is realized. Third party assessments are executed by an independent assessment body, free of charge for Members.
