Rail

The aim of Link-up Audit is to confirm that all suppliers of high risk products and services to the rail
industry demonstrate compliance with set requirements.

The identification of such suppliers is currently through two main routes:
     Suppliers who apply for a Link-up product code that has been classified as auditable
     Suppliers that need to sponsor Personal Track Safety (PTS) qualified staff under Network Rail’s
       Sentinel scheme.

All Link-up product codes that are classified as auditable under the Link-up scheme are listed in the Link-
up Product Code Guide. Link-up’s subscribers regularly review the classification of those product codes
that could involve importing risk to their businesses. The audit is based on a core audit and an additional
question set which covers supplier’s activities in
relation to their other auditable product codes. The Link-up scheme makes best use of the expertise and
resources within the Rail Industry to establish questions that reflect the industry requirements. These
are then built into company-specific audit protocols reflecting the product codes selected by the
company to be audited. Amongst the sources of these questions are individual industry experts,
professional bodies, trade associations, and Link-up subscribers including Network Rail. The question
sets are regularly reviewed to ensure they meet the requirements of Link-up subscribers and industry
legislation.

Link-up auditors are selected on the basis of expertise and experience in three main areas: general
auditing experience, rail industry experience and product code specific knowledge. All Link-up auditors
have to complete the Link-up Licensed Auditor’s development programme in addition to holding
appropriate qualifications and competencies which include NEBOSH Certification (or equivalent) and Lead
Assessor status.

Utilities - A UVDB Verify auditor conducts an in-depth audit of the Health and Safety, Environment
and Quality capabilities of companies who supply or wish to supply to UK utilities industry sector. The
audit generally consists of 2 elements: an evaluation of the management systems at the suppliers office,
and an assessment of implementation of the management systems at a client’s site.
