Technica is thrilled to have passed their annual Achilles Utilities Vendor Database (UVDB) Verify Audit with flying colours, scoring 100% across all eight categories of the assessment, improving their year-on-year score by 3%.

Achilles UVDB Verify is an independent audit of an organisation providing works or services to the utilities sector.   The categories covered in the audit consist of Health and Safety, Environmental, Quality and Corporate Social Responsibility and are considered separately for both office and site based works.

Throughout the course of the 2-day audit zero non-conformances were identified.  Only positive elements -particularly around the use of site work instructions and the company’s commitment to monitoring and improving their carbon footprint – were of note to the auditor.

Technica’s membership of the UVDB community provides their clients within the National Gas Transmission Network with the assurance and verification that procedures, operations and capabilities meet the highest possible standards.  The results of this latest audit further strengthen Technica’s position as a partner of choice to these customers.

Technica’s Operations Director, Robert Gallivan, commented, “Management Systems can only achieve this level of conformity when they are being challenged continually by the business; this excellent result is a reflection of the buy in from all our staff to working with, and constantly challenging, our internal processes.”
