To be included on this list Contractors MUST be registered within all relevant work categories appertaining to their business on Constructionline.  Contractors MUST also be Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) registered either on application or at latest within 6 months from date of inclusion on the list.

Contractors and Sub-contractors who can offer construction trades and who can meet the above criteria are invited to apply for inclusion on the Standing List.
