Covid-19 and how we can help you

The RISQS portal remains available 24/7 for users searching for suppliers and for companies to update their profiles.

Audits are still taking place as scheduled but are now taking place online.

You will need to prepare documentation, and this means ensuring that all the evidence normally provided during the audit is uploaded electronically so that it can be made available for the auditor. You will be contacted in advance to agree the on-line communication method and to help you prepare. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@risqs.org or telephone 0800 4101 300.
