We have published the Draft Assurance Code Version 1.0, which will be submitted to the ISEAL Board of Directors in September. If the ISEAL Board approves, this will become the official Version 1.0 of the Assurance Code.
The Assurance Code Steering Committee gave their approval on the final draft Assurance Code on July 9th. The potential of the Assurance Code is becoming apparent to ISEAL members and others as a way for standards systems to scale-up their impact by employing new models of assurance.
The Assurance Code 2nd consultation is progressing well, with 23 persons attending the webinar on April 24th.
Comments are not streaming in yet, but I am confident that they will increase as we near the end of the
consultation (May 31st). May will be busy, as I prepare for the ISEAL Conference in Bonn (May 29, 30) and
compile the comments from this consultation.
