Shred Station Achieves SafePQQ Accreditation

We are proud to announce that we have recently achieved SafePQQ accreditation.

What are PQQs?

Pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) are documents that many businesses issue to potential contractors as a means of assessment. These questionnaires establish whether a contractor, such as Shred Station, meets the corporate and social responsibility criteria for fulfilling certain services on the business’s behalf.

What is SafePQQ Accreditation and what does it mean for our customers?

SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health and safety accreditation scheme. It verifies compliance in many areas of corporate social responsibility. This includes financial stability, environmental management, quality management, professional standing, equality, anti-bribery, modern slavery, right to work, building information modelling, and GDPR.

To achieve SafePQQ, a 22-point verification of our compliance information was conducted. Achieving this accreditation verifies that Shred Station is a professional and compliant supplier. This can save time for businesses in search of compliant contractors by negating the need to submit multiple PQQs.

Additionally, SafePQQ meets the requirements of PAS 91 & ISO standards. These are the recognised standards for supplier assessment and validation.

The SafePQQ covers the below PAS 91 topics:

  • Financial Stability
  • Environmental Management
  • Quality Management
  • Equality
  • Professional Standing
  • Building Information Modelling

Our SafeContractor accreditation covers the below PAS 91 modules:

  • Health and Safety
  • Insurances

Shred Station’s main focus will always be protecting the confidential information of all of our customers, compliantly, and in an eco-friendly way.
