Reference tool development
The development of each reference tool is managed by an Expert Working Group composed of experts from Task Force member companies. These Expert Working Groups systematically apply the following steps to this development process:
In order to ensure that the GSCP reference tools constantly reflect existing best practices and represent a wide consensus among stakeholders, all tools are to be reviewed on a regular basis. The timeline for review is the following:- 1st review 1 year after publication
- 2nd review 2 years after that
- review every 3 years from that point
These reviews take the shape of public consultations, typically running for a full year on the GSCP website. Please go to the consultation page to see any review protocols currently in place and participate.
