This notice announces the existence of a qualification system for the railway industry pursuant to which the utilities, and other buyers, listed in section VI.3) below can purchase services falling within the CPV codes listed in this section II. The qualification system is operated by RSSB and include the GB rail industry's supplier pre-qualification questionnaire and audit. The RISQS coding structure, against which suppliers indicate their areas of capability, is the RICCL. The Railway Industry Commodity Classification List (RICCL) includes all commodities that are purchased to support GB Railway operations and provides a common vocabulary for The benefit of all buyers and suppliers who are participants in railway supplier assurance activities. It aligns with International standards (especially ISO 81346) while utilising the best of existing models. The commodity classification system is a hierarchical classification system. All entities are identified with a structured alphanumeric code which both indicates its location in the list and uniquely classifies it. The commodity classification system is split into eight sub-systems. Each sub-system consists of its classes. These could be termed its ‘children’. Each class is part of its subsystem, this could be termed its parent. The prefixes A-H identify which sub-system a commodity belongs too. The codes, and further explanations can be found at http://www.risqs.org/ Explanation-of-riccl/ This notice incorporates any changes that have occurred since the previous qualification system notice (QSN) was published for RISQS services and supersedes all previous QSNs for RISQS service.
