Validated CHS self-assessment manual

The CHS validated self-assessment is integrated into the CHS Alliance’s Quality Assurance Verification Scheme.
A validated CHS self-assessment is a two-year cycle of continuous learning and improvement: once the self-assessment is completed for the first time, it feeds into the development of an organisation’s improvement plan. This plan is renewed every two years to measure progress made, and ensure that the plan remains up-to-date and focused on the most needed areas.

As with all other verification options in the Quality Assurance Verification Scheme it will be reviewed regularly by the Verification Review Panel comprised of experts on quality assurance and accountability from the sector. CHS Alliance will update the validated CHS self-assessment manual regularly based on these reviews.

Who can undergo a validated CHS self-assessment?

Any organisation can measure themselves against the CHS. However, only CHS Alliance members can use the tools developed by the Alliance and have their self-assessment validated by the CHS Alliance secretariat.

The Alliance provides tools, supports the member organisation to apply them, and upon completion, issues a certificate to the member organisation to validate the process. Non-members can find out more about joining the Alliance.
