As from 16 June 2022, the process for registering on the Schedule of Suppliers has been superseded by UKAS CertCheck. UKAS CertCheck replaces the requirement for individual companies to upload their own certificates to the Lantra Schedule of Suppliers website.
Please note that your auditor will be uploading your certification to the UKAS CertCheck on your behalf. If you experience any issues with missing certification please contact your auditor/certification body (eg BSI etc).
To search for Suppliers and their certification please visit UKAS CertCheck.
Lantra will continue to host the NHSS Sector Scheme documents only.
- How does my company get registered to a National Highways Sector Scheme (NHSS)?
Your company will need to be certified and registered under the NHSS, you must pass an assessment carried out by a Certification Body. UKAS accredits Certification Bodies to the Conformity Assessment Standard ISO 17021-1 for the National Highways Sector Schemes. You will need to download the NHSS Document for the scheme you wish to be registered for and then engage a certification body that is accredited to assess against the requirements of that specific Sector Scheme document. For information on who needs to be certificated please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-highway-sector-schemes-certification-for-contractors-and-subcontractors .
If you already have an ISO9001 certificate without the NHSS shown it may be possible to gain NHSS certification as an extension. You should discuss this with your Certification Body.
- Where can I find the National Highway Sector Schemes Documents?
The current versions of each National Highway Sector Scheme Document can be found in the UKAS Publications including Technical Bulletins at https://www.scheduleofsuppliers.co.uk
- How do I find a Certification Body?
Information on Certification Bodies accredited against NHSS can be found on the UKAS website https://www.ukas.com/search-accredited-organisations/ . Please discuss your requirements with the certification body as they may not be able to accredit all schemes.
- Can I still register my company to the Schedule of Suppliers?
There is no requirement to register on the Schedule of Suppliers and therefore this option is no longer available.
- How do I search for Suppliers Certificates?
Please visit UKAS CertCheck.
- Who uploads certificate on to UKAS CertCheck?
Your auditor/certification body does this. If you experience any issues with missing certification please contact your auditor/certification body
