MSE Hiller achieves perfect UVDB Audit scores for third consecutive year

12 October 2021

Centrifuge specialist MSE Hiller has achieved a perfect score in the Achilles Utilities Vendor Database (UVDB) Verify Audit for the third consecutive year.

MSE Hiller has achieved 100% in all aspects of the business in the annual independent two-day audit of its Safety, Health, Environment, Quality (SHEQ) management systems and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The perfect score means that MSE Hiller retains its accreditation for Category B2 Verify - Operational Site Works, which is for high risk large suppliers who provide works or services on operational sites owned, managed or controlled by a utility.

The audit, which is driven by a steering group of the UK’s leading water and utility companies, comprised two parts: a one-day Management Systems Evaluation and a one-day site-based assessment at MSE Hiller’s headquarters in Markham Vale, Chesterfield.

UVDB is the utilities industry pre-qualification system used across the UK that helps utility companies and contracting partners like MSE Hiller manage risk within their supply chain and comply with international procurement legislation. It is recognised as a mark of supply chain assurance for MSE Hiller’s clients operating in the water and industrial effluent treatment sectors.

More than 30 utilities companies and over 35 contracting partners use the UVDB system to qualify their supply chain through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance.

Commenting on the audit success Huw Thomas, Sales Director of MSE Hiller said: “To achieve perfect audit scores for the third consecutive year is a real testament to the continued hard work of our team through what has been a challenging 18 months.

“The UVDB industry-recognised accreditation assures our clients of our continued commitment to deliver the very best service and quality.”
