Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is an organisation which enables mutual recognition (also known as the ‘deemed to satisfy’ provision) between health and safety assessment schemes, particularly within the construction industry. SSIP member schemes apply core criteria approved by the HSE. The core criteria describe what it means for a construction business to comply with basic health and safety law, but they can also be applied to other kinds of business.
This means that:
• as a buyer, you do not need to ask for evidence of accreditation to more than one of the SSIP member schemes
• as a supplier, you should only need to be accredited to one of the SSIP member schemes
If a buyer insists on a different SSIP scheme, you can apply to have the equivalence of your existing accreditation recognised through the SSIP mutual recognition provision. This should save you time and money.
