There are four different types of SSIP Forum membership: SSIP Registered Member, SIP Certification Body Member, SSIP Affiliate Member and SSIP Supporter Member. Health and Safety Assessments are undertaken by both Registered Members and Certification Body Members. ALL assessments completed by our Registered Members or Certification Body Members are equivalent and in accordance with the SSIP Core Criteria ensuring the same threshold standard has been achieved by all suppliers.

Registered Members

SSIP Registered Members are third-party Health & Safety assessment schemes, including those run Trade Associations. All Assessments completed by our Registered Member schemes benefit from a two-way mutual recognition with other registered member schemes.



Certification Body Members

SSIP Certification Body Members are Certification Bodies accredited by UKAS to ISO 45001 and fully accredited to EA28 as a minimum.
Certification Body member schemes benefit from a one-way mutual recognition with registered member schemes, as long as the Certification body member approval was carried out in accordance with the SSIP Sector Scheme Accreditation. The following Certification Body Members provide OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001 + SSIP Sector Scheme certification services:

Please note a stand-alone OHSAS 18001 certificate does not meet SSIP requirements and falls outside of the SSIP Scheme. An organisation wishing to hold OHSAS 18001 + SSIP must request this with their Certification Body provider so that the additional SSIP Scheme requirements are implemented during the assessment process including data integration with the SSIP Portal for Deem to Satisfy purposes.

Affiliate Members

This membership is potentially open to those organisations seeking to join SSIP but who do not currently fulfil all of the pre-requisite qualification standards for membership. Affiliate Members can complete assessments however are unable to upload data to the SSIP portal nor will their certificates be eligible for Deem to Satisfy.

SSIP DO NOT carry out assessments - our forum members do, if you have been advised you need to hold 'SSIP' please select from the Members below and apply directly....
Buyers often instruct their supply chain to register with an SSIP member scheme. This gives the supplier the freedom of choice to choose any SSIP member scheme who can provide them with the best value for their company needs. Suppliers are encouraged to visit Member Schemes websites for further information and select based on assessment fees and whether the scheme covers their particular duty holder role i.e. Contractor or Designer.

SSIP recognise that our members include a range of supplementary services to suit the requirements of different buyers therefore please review to determine the appropriate scheme for your business.
