AlertSystems is  pleased to announce to that it has been awarded an Achilles UVDB Verify Category B2 accreditation.

Achilles UVDB is the community for the UK utilities industry. It enables the utilities sector to use Achilles’ proven supplier pre-qualification system to manage risk within the supply chain and comply with EU regulations.
