The main advantages of registering are:

  • participation in electronic purchase/sale of products and/or services procedures;
  • ability to change or confirm registration information at any time using an exclusive access key;
  • creation of a space for uploading documentation via the Internet in an expeditious manner, minimising the need to deliver documents in contract tendering procedures.

Where can I find a list of qualified companies?

For EDP Comercial, Labelec and EDP Produção qualification systems, the supplier must: 

  1. Access the following link;
  2. Select SQF;
  3. Click on qualified suppliers;
  4. Click on the suppliers’ list.


I have registered the company in the EDP group supplier register, but I do not appear on the list of qualified suppliers. Why not?

The EDP group supplier registration system - EDPartners registration and supplier management (offered by GoSupply partner) essentially serves as a supplier search and selection tool in a database where all registered companies are listed.
Thus, a registered supplier is not automatically qualified.
The qualification process involves submitting an application to a supplier qualification system and being registered at Advanced level in GoSupply.

What is the EDPartners Assessment Programme?

It consists of a structured and systematic programme of on-site audits carried out on the supplier's premises, preferably with its prior knowledge. 
The EDPartners Assessment Programme enables the EDP group to know and secure its suppliers’ commitment to the themes of Corporate Sustainability through the identification of Non-Conformities (NC) and/or Improvement Opportunities (IO), as a result of the completed questionnaire.
A corrective and improvement action plan may be established for each supplier, following the completion of the ESG Assessment and depending on the result obtained.


What aspects are assessed in the EDPartners Assessment Programme?

The assessments carried out are based on the collection of evidence to verify compliance with EDP's 7 sustainability criteria:

  1. Strategic alignment;
  2. Quality;
  3. Environment;
  4. Occupational risks;
  5. Social;
  6. Human resources;
  7. Technical requirements.
What happens if non-conformities (NC) and/or opportunities for improvement (OM) are identified?

If non-conformities are identified, representing non-compliance with legal requirements or clauses of the EDP group code of conduct, a more detailed and rigorous monitoring plan is drawn up, whose actions to be implemented must be responded to EDP within 30 days of the audit, in order to resolve the situations within a maximum period of six months. After the implementation of the action plan, a new ESG assessment may be carried out on the supplier and, whenever a supplier does not comply with its plan, it may be excluded from EDP's supply chain.
