ISEAL Recommendations to IDH on Salary Matrix Verification Guidelines for third party verification

In 2021, ISEAL worked with seven different sustainability schemes to conduct ten field-based pilot audits in different country-sector combinations around the world. The objectives of these pilot audits were two-fold: to provide participating schemes the opportunity to test the use of the Salary Matrix and accompanying IDH Verification Guidelines with certified entities and to provide IDH learnings and recommendations for these pilots to improve these Roadmap’s tools.

This document details the learnings and insights drawn from these pilot audits with a focus on recommendations to improve the IDH Verification Guidelines for third-party verification.
