Tasnee is partnering with Achilles to provide our Supplier with Pre-qualification services. This will involve Achilles contacting the supplier on our behalf to register on the system and to update their information.

THE Pre-qualification Process

The pre-qualification program consists of 3 potential stage includes an on-line and off-line element.

 

Registration commences with a simple online application process that determines the risk profile of a supplier, and which stages of the pre-qualification process the supplier will be required to complete. Factors used to determine risk have been pre-determined by Tasnee.

Suppliers will be notified of their due pre-qualification questionnaire requirements via the Achilles online portal as part of the registration process. If an Audit requirement prevails, this will be communicated separately.

Pre-Qualification Stages

STAGE 1:

Tasnee Supplier Registration System questionnaire* requests data related to the following:

  • Basic company information such as contact details;
  • Capability to supply to Tasnee;
  • Willingness to adhere to principles in Tasnee Supplier Code of Conduct;
  • Local legal requirements such as company incorporation and tax payments.

*Stage 1 is free of charge.

STAGE 2:

Chemicals & Allied Industries Community questionnaire* requests the same information as Stage 1, plus more detailed input related to key compliance aspects such as anti-corruption, environment, health, safety and security (EHSS) and labour. A fee is payable for Stage 2. (See below Table).

*Suppliers will be asked to complete at least one online questionnaire (Stage 1 or Stage 2). In some instances, they may be required to complete both.

STAGE 3:

An On-site Audit, if required based on the higher risk profile of the supplier, will serve to independently verify that the supplier’s processes meet best practice of the chemicals industry as well as the specific requirements of Tasnee. It will check for compliance with recognised standards for EHSS; local legislation requirements; and appropriate standards for social and ethical behaviour. The Audit Report is then uploaded to the supplier’s company record in the Achilles online portal. The audit is subject to additional charges which will be communicated to supplier separately.

Annual Renewal Process

  • Suppliers are mandated to maintain a current registration in line with their risk profile and the requirements of the Programme.
  • A supplier’s risk level will be re-evaluated annually as part of the standard Achilles renewal process.
  • Suppliers will be asked to review their online information as part of the renewal process and to submit any changes to Achilles. This is important to ensure due diligence information-on remains up-to-date.
  • The outcome of an audit will be used to determine the need for further improvements and / or when a future audit is required.
