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, 109 organisations have completed at least one verification option. This includes 97 international organisations and 12 national organisations. The map below shows where these organisations have their headquarters.
