CODE 1 Formal self-assessment
The service provider organisation undertakes formal self-assessment, on a routine basis, against the agreed criteria outlined in the defined industry standards.
A formal self-assessment should involve a number of aspects, including the planning and development of a clear structure for the assessment process; the use of an accepted evaluation method such as a peer review; and the use of validated tools where these are available.
CODE 2 In-depth external review
The service provider organisation routinely undergoes an in-depth review against the defined industry standards by an independent external reviewer. This may take place in the context of an accreditation process for the service provider organisation.
More than one code can be recorded.
