LPP strapline

Constructionline for PQQs

For suppliers involved in the construction industry, we have adopted Constructionline, a government-owned certification service for construction-related contractors, consultants and materials suppliers.

It has been developed to save the industry millions of pounds by cutting the amount of duplication in the pre-qualification process. Suppliers joining Constructionline will have satisfied our basic pre-qualification requirements. They only need to submit their Constructionline registration number and any project-specific details to pre-qualify for contracts.

If you wish to tender for work with LPP’s NHS members, you are encouraged to register with Constructionline to make pre qualification easier. This will also include the requirement for a health & safety assessment from an SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) scheme.

What is SSIP?

SSIP is an association of health & safety assessment schemes. They are supported by the HSE and accept that each other’s systems are of a good standard and in line with the CDM 2007 regulations. Through this “mutual recognition” SSIP strives to remove the need for contractors and consultants to undergo multiple health and safety assessments. The aim is that you only need join the health and safety scheme of your choice to demonstrate you have satisfied health and safety requirements to “stage one” level. Please visit www.ssip.org.uk for further details.

If you are not currently registered to an SSIP Scheme, you can also now apply for Acclaim at the same time as registering with Constructionline. To do this, at the point you reach the H&S questionnaire – please select the option of full Acclaim assessment. For more information, contact the dedicated Acclaim helpline:
