    • Access your Private Area in eniSpace with your credentials. If you don’t have any credentials yet, please register to apply
    • Select the Eni Company you want to apply to. (If you operate in Italy or internationally, you can apply to Eni Spa; if you are a supplier that only works locally abroad, please apply to our subsidiary in the country of your interest)
    • Select the Commodity Code you are interested in
    • Add your company data to complete the application
    • Add other information and documents required.

Eni gives priority to applications for Open Opportunities. Applications for Other Opportunities are normally taken into consideration in the event of new needs. In this case, Eni will contact you for possible updates or further details on your company.
In case of a negative result, you will still receive a feedback from Eni.
If your application is positive, you will access the Qualification phase.


In this phase the Vendor Management function will engage you to verify the skills and experiences that best represent the excellence of your company as potential new Eni’s supplier.

The activity will be carried out through a multidisciplinary team, provided with specific knowledge covering each topic analyzed, and will be aimed at verifying in detail your competencies and experiences relating to the Commodity Code you applied for.

Specific attention will be given to the analysis of your company’s ability to manage the risks associated with the complexity of the business and the HSE criticality of the Commodity Code you are applying for. This will be carried out not only through an in-depth desk analysis but also, when required, through targeted visits at your executive and production sites.

The qualification process will cover the following aspects:

  • HSE-Q management: depending on the HSE criticality of the Commodity Code you are applying for, you must have adequate management and training systems on risks inherent to health, safety and environment. Moreover, they must be supported by performance monitoring, also in terms of the accident frequency index, and documented by HSE and Quality certifications.

    The frequency index, which measures the number of accidents occurring per million hours worked, will be assessed according to the Eni reference thresholds updated annually and reported below:

    Threshold FI 2023 – Italy: min 2.00 – max 7.50

    Threshold FI 2023 – Other Countries: min 0.90 – max 1.80.

  • Technical-organizational: we will verify your ability to produce goods or provide services with high and measurable quality standards
  • Economic-financial: economic-financial viability is a distinctive element of resilience in the medium-long term
  • Ethical, reputational and compliance liability: ethical, reputational and integrity aspects are an essential part of Eni's value system ​​and therefore particular attention will be given to them throughout the entire qualification process

The qualification process is driven by Eni's desire to verify suppliers’ adherence to its reference values, stated in the Supplier Code of Conduct, that represents the essential pact to create sustainable value. together.

Among these, Eni takes in particular consideration the respect for human rights, such as the guarantee of freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, the prevention of discrimination in the workplace, the insurance of  congruous working hours and fair salaries, the prohibition of the use of child, forced and compulsory labor, the application of linear disciplinary procedures, all supported by management systems for social issues and shared through the publication of sustainability reports.

In line with Eni's desire to involve its suppliers within the company's energy transition path (Sustainable Procurement), the qualification process will always be more and more focused on the sustainability performance of your company.

Eni believes that a just and sustainable transition must simultaneously guarantee:

  • environmental protection, included but not limited to reduction of emissions, energy efficiency, renewables, water, biodiversity
  • social growth, included but not limited to respect for human rights, welfare, diversity & inclusion, work-life balance and training
  • economic development included but not limited to relationship with territories, development of the industrial chain

These aspects are increasingly central to our corporate strategy and we want to engage players capable of developing best practices and supporting Eni in the energy industry’s transformation path.

At the end of the qualification process we will transparently notify you the outcome of the assessments carried out. When needed, we’ll also formulate recommendations with precise improvement actions, in order to stimulate you in the growth and development of experiences and skills, in line with market best practices.

To partially cover the internal expenses bore by Eni to carry out the Supplier Qualification and Development process, you will be asked for a contribution. The amount is calculated on the basis of the risk level of the Commodity Code you applied for (for details see here).

The outcome of the process, and your Qualification status in general, is available in the "My Qualifications" section of your Private Area.


If the Qualification process ends positively, you will become part of Eni Suppliers lists. From now on, you will be eligible for invitation to tenders, according to your business areas and requirements (note that applications and Qualification do not guarantee any commercial agreement with Eni).
