Accreditation process

The CSR Accreditation scheme is available to any private, public or third sector organisation which can demonstrate a measurable 12 month period of CSR activity.

Our Assessment Panel is totally independent. They are selected because of their appropriate CSR and technical knowledge, their professional backgrounds and relevant experience.

The assessment panel can award up to 10 points on each of the following criteria (Assessment Guidance Notes) . They also have the flexibility to award up to 10 additional bonus points for applications they believe have particular merit.

The assessment panel will meet every 3 months to assess applications.
Applications scoring 80+% will be awarded Gold status; 65-79% – Silver; 50-64% – Bronze.

An appeal process is in place to respond to decisions made by the assessment panel that the applicant may disagree with.
