Structural and civil engineering company Freyssinet underwent a renewal audit for the RISQS accreditation certificate in February 2015.

RISQS, formerly known as Achilles Link-up, provides a service for the qualification of suppliers for all products and services that are procured by the rail industry.

RISQS supports Network Rail, LUL/Transport for London, main infrastructure contractors and other rail products and services providers in the management of supply chain risk.

Freyssinet’s successful audit saw them attain a four-star maturity rating of the company’s management and systems, demonstrating compliance against both the industry wide assurance requirements and specific infrastructure requirements.

Successfully retaining RISQS accreditation ensures that Freyssinet can continue to strengthen their position as a service provider to the rail industry, undertaking both complex civil engineering projects, and repair and maintenance of rail infrastructure.
