Did you Receive an ISNetworld® Letter?

An ISNetworld® letter notifies a contractor that their hiring client requires certification through ISNetworld® before beginning a contract. ISNetworld® is an online industrial compliance certification firm. You may receive this kind of letter from a client you’ve worked with for years, or you may receive a letter after beginning negotiations with a new client.

Typically, ISNetworld® letters read like so:

We are pleased to announce that (COMPANY) has recently established a business relationship with ISNetworld® to enhance our contractor/supplier management program. As a result of this action, contractors/suppliers and their subcontractors performing services for (COMPANY) are required to become certified by ISNetworld®.

The ideas of certification and online auditing can feel rather intimidating at first but don’t panic. Obtaining ISNetworld® certification isn’t as challenging as it seems, especially with the assistance of First Compliance Safety consultants.

What Are Your Next Steps?

After receiving your letter, the next steps are creating an ISNetworld® account and applying for certification. An annual subscription to ISNetworld® starts at $810 for small companies that are newly signing up. The costs do depend on the size of your company. See full ISNetworld® subscription costs here. Also, keep in mind that the application review process takes up to two weeks, so it is best to submit your application as soon as possible in the case of time-sensitive projects.


How to Become ISNetworld® Certified


To become certified, you will need to complete an online application that is customized according to the specific needs of your hiring client. The application contains between 800 and 2,000 questions about your company safety practices and history. Additionally, you must upload your RAVS® safety programs, OSHA documentation from the past three years, your company insurance certificate, and your EMR letter. Professional auditors will review your application, and within two weeks you will be notified of your official grade. If you receive an A or a B, then congratulations – you are officially certified and cleared to begin your project with your hiring client.
