Updated Guidance document on Assess-and-Address
We are pleased to inform you that Guidance document L: Assess-and-Address has been updated. The main changes are:
- the inclusion of a sample pledge format, that can support certificate holders with implementing requirement 5.1.1 (although its not mandatory to use this format)
- slight adjustments to the information on required evidence/ documents/records needed to demonstrate compliance with the requirements
- alignment with the Glossary definition
These were points of feedback for improvement we received through the recent pilots on the implementation and auditing of the A&A approach. The pledge is available in Word format, to allow the CH to more easily adapt it to their context or to translate it into any of the local languages used by the workers or group members.
