Restart Your Business: Gain Independent Assurance Ahead of Easing Restrictions

Mar. 12 2021

With lockdown measures set to ease in the coming months and businesses allowed to reopen to customers, Bureau Veritas has renewed our Restart Your Business assurance solution, supporting clients with independent assurance of safety and compliance.

As the restrictions gradually ease, it will be important to put in place measures which ensure a safe working and trading environment.

Our updated support pack, available to download for free from our website, offers a summary of essential measures to take, as well as details of our successful Restart Your Business solution – a voluntary, independent assessment of your COVID-19 readiness to re-open business premises.

Together, it gives organisations all the support they need to help demonstrate confidence through the coming weeks and months.

How does it work?

This unique solution is delivered through a comprehensive, five-stage process. On completion, if mandatory requirements have been achieved, Bureau Veritas will issue a Restart Your Business Assurance Statement, providing independent assurance to your employees, stakeholders and customers.

  • Phase 1: Project kick-off and preparation
  • Phase 2: Management system assessment
  • Phase 3: Site assessment
  • Phase 4: Reporting
  • Phase 5: Traceability, including assurance statement

Developing solutions to overcome challenges

Ken Smith, UK Chief Executive, Bureau Veritas UK, said: “We recognise the challenges that organisations face in navigating the often-conflicting information to ensure they reopen safely after COVID-19 restrictions.

“Restart Your Business was initially developed in the first UK lockdown and we have continuously updated and improved the service to support businesses in recent months. Now, with the roadmap confirmed in England and restrictions set to be eased in other UK nations too, it is vital once again to demonstrate best practice.

“With the proven Restart Your Business solution, our clients gain complete, independent assurance from a global leader, operating in more than 140 countries worldwide. We work in partnership to develop a consistent yet tailored approach across all sites, including in different countries, helping organisations to drive competitive advantage as they reopen business premises. The certificate of assurance issued on completion can be displayed online and in properties to provide full traceability for customers and staff.

“It forms part of a comprehensive suite of support supports, developed to help clients tackle the unprecedented challenges they have faced in the last 12 months and more.”
