Atiqo Supplier Qualification System //
The Atiqo Supplier Qualification System (ASQS) is for all suppliers of products and services to Atiqo.
By being invited to register in ASQS, suppliers will be assessed against the principles detailed in the Atiqo Responsible Sourcing
Policy (RSP) (PDF | 8MB). The RSP embodies the way that Atiqo seeks to operate and in addition, the standards we expect of our suppliers.
Atiqo only wishes to work with like-minded suppliers.
By going through the ASQS process, Atiqo will consider supplier practices and policies and seeks assurance that they align with the values of the RSP.
As a multi-national company, our Procurement team purchases from tens of thousands of suppliers worldwide. The Supplier Qualification System helps
Atiqo to qualify which suppliers we will do business with. ASQS forms part of our selection and ongoing business process.
Atiqo’s Responsible Sourcing Policy is for all of our suppliers.
The policy contains 12 fundamental principles, which define the way we operate and the way we expect others that interact with
Atiqo to operate too. Aligning with and incorporating the Fundamental Principles into operations is not an event, but a
journey. The policy has a continuous improvement ladder that provides guidelines and tips for three performance
levels: Mandatory Requirements, Good and Best Practices.
In ASQS, we seek to assure that, as a minimum, our suppliers are working to the mandatory principles of our policy
and either have or are willing to develop a policy to demonstrate this.
ASQS for Atiqo
ASQS provides a single Global platform for Atiqo to evaluate its supply base.
ASQS will help Atiqo to:
1. Identify approved suppliers for the products and services they want to buy
2. Better understand the potential risks of buying products or services in all geographies
3. Encourage improvements in supplier standards
4. The system will streamline the supplier qualification process, enhance our risk management and position us to
comply with future changes to regulations and legislation on a global basis.
ASQS for our suppliers
Successful registration in ASQS enables suppliers to be qualified to work with Atiqo, be that a new supplier to
the business or an existing supplier who wishes to continue working with Atiqo.
ASQS allows suppliers to better understand how Atiqo wishes to operate. By considering practices against
this framework, suppliers can understand their readiness to work with Atiqo and the steps required to achieve such standards.
Atiqo believe that working to the same principles and values that Atiqo details in the RSP will help suppliers to
operate in an ethical, fair and legal way that will facilitate good practices across the entire supply chain of our suppliers.
