AccountAbility is now reaching the final few weeks of its AA1000AS wiki comment.
They have received some very interesting comments and are looking forward to receiving many more before the FINAL deadline – September 12th.
In recent weeks two key issues have been raised by stakeholders:
Improving the AA1000 AccountAbility Principles document – changes to the principles?
There have been comments suggesting this document needs more development and some of the principles are not articulated well enough or clearly enough. This has led to a Technical Committee discussion which you can view online here. Please add your views.
It has also led to a proposed redrafting of the AA1000AP document, including a new contextual ‘wrapper’ and a change in the articulation of some of the principles, notably completeness. Please review this latest discussion document and send us your thoughts. Download the discussion document here.
Discussion on types of scope and the introduction of a more simple and accessible Type 1?
Comments from Ernst and Young have suggested there are problems with the wording of the two types as it currently stands (due to the issue of evaluating performance information) and that there is an opportunity to make Type 1 a more simplified type to bring new organisations in the AA1000AS fold and providing a stepping stone to full AA1000AS assurance. See the comments made so far here and add you views.
Please keep visiting www.accountabilityaa1000wiki.net and we look forward to hearing your thoughts on these or other issues.
