How UVDB worksLet’s take a closer look at UVDB registration
You have two options for registration with the Utilities Vendor DataBase.
- UVDB Basic
- UVDB Verify
The first level is UVDB Basic. This means your company is registered, complete with a few business details and your key areas of expertise. You’ll be listed along with all the other professionals in the industry, and you’ll have access to view open tenders, and respond to opportunities to bid for contracts.
The second level of registration is UVDB Verify. This enhanced level allows you, in addition to basic registration, to provide online proof of your Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental certification. This speeds up the pre-qualifying process when you’re responding to Safety Critical tenders.
The Verify level of registration sets you up to meet many of the requirements for attaining ISO9001, ISO14001 or OHSAS18001 certification. If those apply to you, it’s worth considering.
When you’re deciding whether to go for Basic or Verify UVDB registration, you should ask yourself things like, what risk levels apply to your business, which certification codes are relevant to your company, and the degree of information you’d like showcased in the official database.
