The services offered by RALA help
improve the level of performance in the construction industry, create
favourable conditions for sound competition and combat unreported activities
hidden from official view. The
objective is to make it easier for construction companies to demonstrate
corporate responsibility and level of competence, and for developers to
identify reliable contractors.
A RALA CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCE is
awarded to a company able to demonstrate that it possesses sufficient technical
competence and adequate resources and has duly fulfilled its legal obligations
towards society and made the required financial disclosures. Applications for a
RALA Certificate of Competence may be filed by construction companies and organisations that
have executed reference projects in Finland and are able to provide the
required information. The Certificate of Competence is specific to the business
identity code of the applicant company.
details of RALA-qualified enterprises are available in the competence register on RALA’s website (in Finnish only). The
register search service is accessible to all without user registration.
technical competence required for the RALA Certificate of Competence is established
specifically to each individual field of activity based on RALA’s competence
categories in which construction is subdivided into four areas.
RALA Certification Categories
RALA CERTIFICATION is a procedure for the
evaluation and approval of the operating systems of companies engaged in
engineering design, construction management, construction and installation. It
offers a tool for improving quality and developing the business. At the same
time, it makes it easier for developers to evaluate and select contractors.
Certification is based on the ISO 9001:2008 standard.
RALA PROJECT FEEDBACK is a shared feedback
system for a construction project that allows all the parties involved to
exchange information during and after the project. By using this feedback, the
individual players in the supply chain - owners, developers, designers and
contractors - can develop their business and ensure the smooth execution of the
project. RALA Project Feedback Plus is
a tool for efficient and goal-oriented processing of the feedback received.
