Upcoming Consultation Events: May to September 2023

We are currently analysing the feedback we received from you in 2022 and developing a first Draft of the updated Standard.

During the upcoming consultation phase, you will again be able to consult within your organisation or network. You will also be able to send individual feedback and fill in the online survey. All this information will be available along with the Draft Standard. And if you wish to contact the revision managers directly, please write to chsrevision@chsalliance.org.
