CHS Verification Scheme Overview

Verification is a structured, systematic process to assess the degree to which an organisation is working to achieve the CHS. The Verification Scheme is managed by the CHS Alliance. It sets out the policies and rules of the verification process to ensure it is conducted in a fair and consistent manner for all participating organisations. The Scheme offers four verification options with different degrees of rigour and confidence in the results. These are self-assessment, peer review, Independent verification and certification. Although each option is stand alone, the indicators used in the self-assessment are common to all four options.

This version replaces previous versions of the CHS Verification Scheme and incorporates feedback received during the testing phase. The CHS Alliance encourages members and non-members that will undergo verification using any of the four options to provide feedback on their experience to the CHS Alliance.
