Risk evaluation documentation
IP Gruppo api’s risk evaluation documents (DUVRI*) and details of measures the company adopts to eliminate interference risk in granting contracts (as per Italian legislative decree 81, dated 9 April 2008) are available for download. Once a contract/tender is awarded, each supplier is asked to view and attach a signed copy of the relevant DUVRI to the contract. The related costs will not be subject to discount or negotiation.
*DUVRI is the acronym for Documento Unico Valutazione Rischi Interferenziali which is a unified text on assessment of risks generated by simultaneous on-site activity risk.
