For additional guidance on using SAQs, please see our FAQ.

Corporate SAQ

  • The corporate SAQ covers the entire company and only needs to be completed once.

Facility SAQ

  • Is site specific and should be completed separately for each facility in RBA Online.
  • Suppliers will need to create facility records before starting the facility questionnaire.

  • Depending on how the user fills out the initial questions, the other sections of the questionnaire will populate with the appropriate questions.
