ALBC Generic Standard

All Assured contractors must pass the Generic standard and then the additional modules specific to their business.

This generic base standard applies to all land-based contractors. It will operate in conjunction with sector-specific standards. Contractors should also carry out a review of procedures at a minimum interval of twelve months.

The scheme will establish a framework of good and safe working practices to be verified by independent external assessors that will allow members of the scheme to produce a high quality, traceable service to meet the requirements of any national quality assurance program.

All clauses of this standard are compulsory requirements of the scheme. They have to be met in full at all times for sites to be granted or to retain their certification.

Contractors must also comply with national law.

The scheme is open to NAAC members and non-members and the Association will provide contractors with the appropriate support and advice.
