ASI Standards

Standards Revisions

ASI commits to review the Standards at least every five years, or more frequently as required. 



Revisions

Regular revisions help standards and certification programs continue to improve over time.  ASI Standards and supporting documents will be reviewed at least every five years, or more frequently as required.  From 2022, Guidance and other supporting documents will undergo more frequent updates to support implementation, clarify key issues and incorporate new resources.

ASI conducts standards development and revision processes in accordance with the ISEAL Alliance Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards.  This includes multi-stakeholder public consultation and decision-making processes which represent a balance of interests.

Revisions are overseen by the ASI Standards Committee, with input supported by technical Working Groups for key topics.  Changes to ASI Standards must be adopted by the ASI Board.
