Creditsafe has been awarded registered status on the FSQS supplier qualification system for the financial sector.

As the common register of standardised, validated, structured and comprehensive vendor and third-party information, FSQS provides a safe and efficient way to manage compliance and assurance data.  Currently, 13 major financial organisations use the FSQS system, including; Santander, TSB, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide, Metro Bank, Clydesdale Bank, Shawbrook, Arbuthnot Latham, LV=, Aldermore, Weatherbys, Bank of Ireland and CYBG.

To gain the qualification, Creditsafe took part in a two-stage process focused on its compliance and policy requirements in areas such as anti-bribery, whistleblowing and records management.

Chris Robertson, UK Managing Director of Creditsafe, said: “Our addition to the Hellios FSQS register demonstrates our commitment to excellence in all areas of compliance, as well as providing further proof that Creditsafe is a trusted name in the financial sector.

“Our customers can be safe in the knowledge that we adhere to all compliance and risk management processes required by the leading financial institutions in the UK.”

FSQS also helps to promote and introduce responsible business practices through its collaborations with the industry’s major institutions.
