2020 – 2022 Standards Revision process
During 2020-2022, ASI conducted a major Standards Revision to review all of the 6 ASI Documents – Performance Standard and Guidance, Chain of Custody Standard and Guidance, Assurance Manual and Claims Guide. The revision included multiple rounds of consultation, with opportunities for all members and stakeholders to have input.
The objectives were to clarify and improve ASI’s certification program based on:
- implementation experience and identified improvement areas,
- stakeholder feedback and evolving expectations, and
- good practice approaches in certification programs and data governance.
The revised ASI Documents were published in May 2022.
The ASI team extends sincere thanks to the ASI Standards Committee, Working Groups, the Indigenous Peoples Advisory Forum and all participating stakeholders for their valuable contributions to the revision process.
ASI gratefully acknowledges the contribution of Benoit Keane of Keane Legal in carrying out a pro bono competition law review of the proposed revisions.
