The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability sets out Nine Commitments that organisations and individuals involved in humanitarian response can use to improve the quality and effectiveness of the assistance they provide.

To do so, organisations can use one of the options of the CHS Verification Scheme to measure their performance against the CHS and making improvements on areas where they are most needed.

Verified organisations

To date and since the launch of the verification scheme in 2016, 113 organisations have completed at least one verification option. The map below shows where these organisations have their headquarters.
