What is RISQS?

RISQS is the Railway Supplier Qualification Scheme, set up to give the industry's circa 90 buyer members the assurance to do business with confidence, with circa 4,000 supplier members. The scheme provides suppliers with a way for them to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services to the GB rail market. Suppliers can be audited once via RISQS for their capabilities avoiding the need for them to be subjected to multiple, duplicate auditing from different buyers.
