About the process

We are committed to following the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice for standard-setting, assurance and impacts.

The Secretariat will project manage the Standards Development Process and support the work of the various Working Groups responsible for developing the content, with significant input from our Standards Committee, Technical Committee and Stakeholder Advisory Group, as well as our Certificate Holders, Certification Bodies and our Accreditation Body.

All interested parties will have plenty of opportunities to participate in the Process through getting involved in the work of the various Working Groups, public consultations, events or simply through getting in touch and providing us with views and ideas.

Ultimately, it will fall to our multi-stakeholder Standards Committee to approve the standards.
