Format of assessment
Country assessments of compliance with the Recommendation
All require a self-assessment by the country, based on a self-assessment questionnaire. These may also be substantiated through documentation and referencing. In addition a peer review may be conducted by the CSSP with the help of the Secretariat. A peer review will only take place at the request of the country concerned and subject to receipt of a voluntary contribution to cover associated costs.
