Following a rigorous audit and assessment undertaken this summer, JPCS has been re-awarded Achilles Link-up qualified supplier status for its rail civil engineering services, demonstrating continued commitment to delivering value for clients.
Link-up – the UK rail industry supplier qualification scheme – is shared by the UK rail industry, providing a single common registration, qualification and audit for suppliers of products and services which relate to works undertaken on the railway infrastructure, through a fair, open and transparent process.
Widely recognised amongst rail civil engineering contractors and buyers, Link-up approval is often a prerequisite to business in the rail industry. Over 3600 suppliers and contractors are registered on the Link-up scheme, which is extensively used by 2700 individual buyers in the rail sector, including procurement, engineering, safety and quality professionals, as well as organisations who need to comply with European Procurement Legislation and Railway Group Standards.

- Core audit module (trackside)
