How does Shell Polymers qualify Suppliers providing a service?

We have standard minimum pre-qualification requirements for potential suppliers. They may include (but may not be limited to):

  • An acceptable HSSE management system and performance
  • Successful registration, complete document submittal, evaluation and maintenance of a third-party safety audit (if required, this process will be initiated by Shell Polymers)

How does Shell Polymers contract with suppliers?

  • Shell Polymers will typically initiate a sourcing process by issuing a “Request for Information”, which will include a questionnaire aimed at technically assessing suppliers’ ability and suitability to perform the relevant scope. At this point, a supplier may be “pre-qualified”
  • Subsequently, suppliers may then be issued a “Request for Proposal”, which will include the relevant contractual, commercial, and related qualification material
  • Upon conclusion of a “Request for Proposal”, successful participating suppliers may enter into a contract with Shell Polymers for the provision of goods and/or services for a prescribed period of time
  • Participating suppliers who may have been unsuccessful during the “Request for Proposal” may express interest in future similar scopes
