VSB is administered by our service provider Achilles and consists of Level 1 (basic web registration) and Level 2 (qualification system). We use VSB in order to have updated information on our suppliers and in order to monitor and control how suppliers fulfil Vattenfall's Sustainability and Health & Safety requirements.
How do I register in Vattenfall Supplier Bank?
Level 1 registration
Level 1 requires suppliers to complete a short questionnaire by providing basic information, such as product/service categories, area of sales and contact details. Registration in VSB Level 1 is mandatory for all suppliers who take part in tendering contracts with estimated value ≥ 400K€ and all suppliers providing services related to MBL §38 in Sweden. All other suppliers can use level 1 registration to become visible to all Vattenfall purchasers. Registration is free of charge for suppliers.
Level 2 registration
Level 2 requires the supplier to complete an extended questionnaire.
VSB Level 2 registration is mandatory for all suppliers from high risk countries, regardless of tender/ contract value, and for all suppliers participating in EU-tenders run via VSB.
