RISQS accreditation makes it a hat trick for Impulse
Impulse have secured their 3rd accreditation of 2020, by becoming re-certified for RISQS, thus ensuring our continuing status as a verified supplier to the rail sector.
Following on from recent accreditations for UVDB and JOSCAR, Impulse are now re-certified under the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS).

RISQS is GB rail’s supplier assurance scheme, which is run by the industry, for the industry, under the stewardship of RSSB. RISQS empowers the safe and cost-effective procurement of railway products and services and provides assurance for 110-plus buyers including Network Rail and TfL to do business with confidence with 1,000s of suppliers.

Many rail industry buyers, procurement managers and engineers looking to procure products and services for the rail industry in Britain, are already using RSSB RISQS as it helps them deal with the risk imported from suppliers into the chain.

By becoming RISQS verified, it means buyers using Impulse as a source of their rail certified computing and communication devices, have the assurance that risk is managed and that we can deliver products and services to our customers’ requirements. Additionally, our accreditation, helps to ensure our customers benefit from a significantly streamlined and simplified procurement process as many parts of our customer’s supplier audits are completed in advance as part of the RISQS pre-qualification process.

This RISQS certification process is performed by RSSB and focuses on a number of our internal procedures and practices that relate directly to rail industry, as well as evaluating areas such as Quality Management, Health and Safety, Financial, Environmental Practices, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Ethics and Compliance.

On achieving RISQS accreditation Robert Plant, Impulse Sales Director stated – “The decision to obtain RISQS verified supplier status again this year was really important for us. We provide computing and communication solutions to a wide variety of customers in rail, so we wanted to reaffirm our commitment to quality and longevity within the industry. The unique challenges which the railway industry presents add to the complexity of projects, so the RISQS scheme takes one of the headaches away for our customers in pre approving the supply chain.”  

Buyers of products and services throughout the GB rail industry use RSSB RISQS as their supplier qualification service. In short we help suppliers sell in to the GB rail industry by providing an open, fair and transparent way for them to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services.

This means we support Network Rail, Transport for London, passenger and freight operating companies, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and many other buying organisations in the management of supply chain risk.

The scheme embraces rail's qualification arrangements. RISQS is industry-owned and governed, sponsored by a committee of representatives from across the rail industry. This reports into the RSSB Board, and RSSB provides a range of services to support operational delivery of the scheme.
