We have been working with a well-established Construction company for some time who pride themselves in providing the best fit out and refurbishment delivery services for their clients. They had asked us to get them through the SMAS accreditation process. We advised them to wait until their CHAS application was complete as we could use to this apply for SMAS direct with no further work involved. As soon as the CHAS certificate was issued (which we also supported them on) we submitted this and the relevant fee to SMAS and within days had both accreditations secured for our client.
SMAS is a leading Accreditation Scheme that is proving ever more popular with main contractors who want to assure themselves of the health and safety compliance of their sub-contract companies. Many companies are now insisting that their suppliers and sub-contractors be accredited before they contract with them.
