Objectives of the Suppliers Registration Registration in the Suppliers Club will enhance a partnership which is relevant for the development of the activity of PT Portugal.

Registering with Suppliers Club da PT involves the payment, by the supplier, of a registration fee and, in subsequent years, of an annuity that will be charged on a date to be determined. The values vary according to the type of supplier:
Type A Supplier
Registration Fee: €1.500
Type B Supplier
Registration Fee: €50
( If applicable, VAT at the legal rate must be added to the stated values)
In case of non-payment of the above values the PT suppliers managing entity reserves the right to suspend and/or revoke the registration of the supplier, thereby precluded from even being consulted on future tenders of PT Portugal.
Suppliers who have not been consulted by PT during a one-year period prior to the date of the last billing of the entry fee or annuity, shall be exempt from payment of the annuity the following year.
We also inform that, during the pre−registration phase, your company is able to take part in tenders launched by PT Portugal. However, in order to be potentially awarded/to receive purchase orders from PT Portugal the company must be registered in the PT Suppliers Club.
F. Code of Conduct for Social Responsibility
The total alignment of our suppliers with the principles enshrined in the Code of Conduct for Social Responsibility is absolutely fundamental for PT Portugal. We are certain that the values of our Code of Conduct are in line with your principles of action.

G. Liability and Confidentiality of Information
The information placed on the Suppliers Club site is the sole responsibility of each supplier who may consult it at any time. The supplier shall maintain and continually update the information.
The supplier can also ask, at any time, that data be eliminated through a written communication addressed to the suppliers managing entity.
Each company can only view its own information as the portal has mechanisms to protect against external access. Nevertheless, given that it collects data on open networks, the data can travel on the network without security, at the risk of being seen by unauthorized parties. Thus, data security is also a responsibility of the supplier, who should take appropriate measures to prevent the unauthorized access by third parties, by making diligent use of the user and password assigned to him, not making them available to other non-authorized persons.
The supplier shall be responsible for all damages caused by the misuse or loss of the user and password in which case the managing entity cannot be responsible for any modification, removal or addition of any data by third parties.
The managing entity reserves the right to, at any time and without prior notice and with immediate effect, change, add, update or delete some or all of the General Conditions of Registration.
You must fill out the form with the main data of your Company and its representative who, we remind, will be your contact for matters relating to the Suppliers Club of PT Portugal.
