General Information

The FPAL Verify process involves a verified assessment of the supplier's Advanced Registration Questionnaire (ARQ) followed by a site visit to their premises to validate the application and implementation of the systems being described.

The visit will also incorporate the collection and verification of information additional to the initial ARQ submission.

The scoring scheme is intended to be transparent to both the supplier and any potential purchaser, and the supplier will be kept appraised of the scores achieved during the verification visit as well as being given an indication of potential areas of improvement.
