The Importance of Insurance and Certifications when Sourcing a Supplier

As a facilities manager, building owner, or a property manager, making sure your properties are safe, up-to-code, and running smoothly is a never-ending task. Choosing a supplier to meet your maintenance needs is another difficult decision that needs some time and research. One of the things you can do to find the best companies in the industry is to ask to see their certifications and insurances.

Glass Aftercare are proud to be certified with well-respected organisations like ISO9001, ISO14001, part of networks like the Achilles Network, and approved by safety organisations like SafeContractor. Having these certificates provides reassurance to our clients we work with, that they will be receiving a high quality service, delivered safely and in accordance with regulations and industry standards.

Let’s take a look at some of the certifications and insurances we hold.

ISO 9001

ISO9001 is the international standard for quality management systems. Getting certified means that we have met strict requirements that ensure we are providing high-quality products and services. This certification is important to you because it lets you know that you are working with a company that values quality and is committed to providing the best possible service. For building owners and property managers, ISO9001 compliance ensures that their suppliers are providing the highest quality products and services.

ISO 14001

ISO14001 is an environmental management standard that allows us to show our commitment to reducing our environmental impact. By getting certified we can prove that we are taking steps to reduce our company’s carbon footprint and comply with environmental regulations. This can help you attract environmentally conscious tenants and investors, and will also lead to cost savings through reduced energy usage.

The Achilles Network Silver Member

The Achilles Network is a community of pre-qualified suppliers that work with some of the world’s largest companies. By joining this network it can be a significant advantage for you because it means that we have already been vetted and approved by a reputable organisation. This saves time and resources compared to identifying and screening potential suppliers independently.


Safecontractor is a UK specific organisation that validates the safety practices of contractors and service providers. Being approved by Safecontractor means that we have met strict safety standards, making us a low-risk option as a supplier. This can give peace of mind to our clients, knowing that the team working on their property is safe and reliable.

The Automatic Door Suppliers Association (ADSA) Member

Becoming a member of ADSA ensures that the company is following the latest safety trends and regulations related to automatic doors. This can help you avoid costly issues related to automatic doors.


SafePQQ is a verification system for suppliers. It is designed to reduce risk in supply chains and ensure that suppliers are meeting the highest safety standards. When a company is SafePQQ Verified, it signals to customers that they are a safe choice as a supplier. This can save time and resources in finding and verifying suppliers.
