Stakeholder Consultations on GSTC Accreditation Policy and Certification Requirements
The Stakeholder Consultation for GSTC is a crucial process for creating or revising the GSTC Accreditation Policy and Certification Requirements beside the Working Group task to review the standard/document development/policy. This activity involves engaging individuals, groups, or any related stakeholders interested in accreditation and certification. The Stakeholder Consultation aims to gather input and feedback from a diverse range of stakeholders, making GSTC transparent in its development and implementation, and emphasizing collaboration as a key aspect of the policy and requirements. This approach helps in making better-informed decisions and achieving more favorable outcomes by considering the needs and expectations of all stakeholders.
The Process of Stakeholder Consultation
At GTSC, we are committed to following the guidelines set forth by ISEAL’s Standard-Setting Code of Good Practice Version 6.0 2014 regarding public consultation. We place great importance on stakeholder involvement in the revision process of our Manual and prioritize transparency. To ensure adequate time for input, we hold public consultations on revisions for a minimum of 60 days. For major changes, we extend the consultation period to engage a diverse and inclusive range of stakeholders.
