Registration and Qualification
All the information you need to become a supplier
The Registration process is an essential requirement for any company who intends to become a supplier or apply for a Qualification Process issued by any EDP Group company.
This system consists essentially of a supplier search and selection tool out of a corporate database that is shared by all companies within the EDP Group, managed in outsourcing with Achilles.

I – Basic Level – potential supplier companies or suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group below 10.000 €;
II – Standard Level – suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group between 10.000 € and 150.000 €;
III – Strategic Level – suppliers with an annual turnover with EDP Group over 150.000 €.
The Basic and Standard registration levels are free-of-charge, as all administrative costs involved are fully incurred by EDP and registered suppliers in these levels are only visible within EDP Group.
In the Strategic registration level, administrative charges are shared between EDP and the supplier. The annual fee attributable to the supplier, which you can find at www.achilles.com/portugalaims, to back part of the costs with the management process and database information maintenance.
