Qualify as a Shell supplier

We use a global system to pre-qualify suppliers invited for upcoming contracts.

The Supplier Qualification System (SQS) forms part of the internal process we use to pre-qualify suppliers for upcoming contracts. It provides a standard and streamlined approach to the pre-qualification process and ensures that suppliers complete relevant assessments. Registration in SQS does not guarantee any business with Shell. SQS is operated by Achilles who will assist suppliers with registration and provide on-going support. Suppliers register at their own cost.

Registration is by invitation only. You will be invited to register in SQS if your company is being considered for a potential contract or is renewing a current contract with Shell.

Our Contracting & Procurement specialists will contact Achilles with a request to invite suppliers to register in SQS. Achilles SQS Customer Support Team will contact identified suppliers by sending an invitation letter with a registration token.

If you are already registered, please log in and access or update your current profile.
