Initially introduced to provide a framework for collaborative business relationships, BS 11000 encourages companies to develop interactions with other organisations.
It places an emphasis on maximising the benefits for all parties involved.
Having constantly worked to encourage collaborative working with its supply chain, Prater believes that the BS 11000 standard reflects its well-established ethos.
