Link-up will shortly be changing its name to RISQS (Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme).

RISQS embraces rail’s qualification arrangement currently known as Link-up, with services such as audit provided by Achilles. 

RISQS is the supplier pre-qualification service used by buyers of all products and services throughout the GB rail industry supporting Network Rail, Transport for London, passenger and freight train operators, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and many other buying organisations in the management of supply chain risk.

RISQS provides a fair, open and transparent third party qualification process and is the preferred route for suppliers to engage with their customers.

The long term goal will be for industry to harness its closer ownership of arrangements to reduce cost even further, this will include:
• Streamlining of the product code hierarchy to be more in keeping with industry requirements
• Rationalisation of supplier qualification requirements
• Streamlining the audit activity
• Enhancement of qualification arrangements to embrace sustainable development
• Further improving the IT platform to support the more effective operation of the scheme

Watch out for further information in the next few months about Link-up becoming RISQS.
