Common Assessment Standard Feedback Form

Build UK and CECA are delivering an action within the Construction Sector Deal to establish a new Common Assessment Standard which will improve efficiency and reduce cost in the construction pre-qualification (PQ) process.

Following the successful launch of the Common Assessment Standard last year, we are now undertaking the first major review to ensure it remains relevant and up to date. The Common Assessment Standard has been designed by industry for industry to provide a single PQ standard and we are looking for your feedback.

To submit any suggested changes, please complete this form.

If you have any queries regarding the Common Assessment Standard or the review, please email

Criteria for Amendments

In order to maintain the key principles of the Common Assessment Standard, any suggested amendments will need to satisfy the following requirements:
  • All PAS 91 questions must be included, unless there is now a specific reason for removing them. Amendments may be possible to the wording of the PAS 91 questions, the guidance and their position within the Common Assessment Standard
  • Relevant to PQ Stage 1: Business Assurance (i.e. is focused on business assurance and not trade specific technical assurance)
  • Applicable to the majority of companies
  • Capable of assessment – not ‘information gathering’
  • Does not duplicate another question
  • Inclusion supported by the majority of the industry.
