Within TÜV Rheinland Group, corporate procurement department is responsible for global purchasing, travel management and fleet management.
For required items and services we have defined standard products and standard suppliers.
In Germany these items and services are obtained by decentralized purchasers via electronic ordering systems. International TÜV Rheinland Group entities have to use these recommendations of the headquarter.
Suppliers should have to accept TÜV Rheinland´s procurement terms & conditions (PTC) and tender conditions(TCS).
Corporate procurement usually makes invitations to tender for any product via Internet and signs global frame contracts. Therefore, short term projects and not listed items cannot be considered.
TÜV Rheinland Group’s activities are based on the principles of Global Compact. Sustainability, responsibility and compliance are key elements of our sustainable corporate strategy and the base for cooperation with our suppliers. Companies which are committed to these values only could be considered as suppliers. Cooperation with suppliers bases on our tenders (TCS) and procurement terms & conditions (PTC).
