We want to be recognised as an industry leader - does CCA Global Standard® support this ambition?
Yes, very much so. Since 2001, when Standard® was first introduced to the market, there were many examples of leading practice being identified through the assessment process. With Version 6, if an organisation believes they are performing exceptionally well in a particular business area, then the assessor will focus on this and include a review within the report which is presented to CCA Standards Review Board. The Review Board act as a collective voice of industry, and will discuss the submission and provide feedback to you and present an opinion of whether they believe the specific initiative or process merits additional recognition.
"CCA Centres of Excellence" is a new initiative introduced to showcase CCA accredited members. This will form the stage for recognising and promoting leading practice across our industry. The CCA Excellence Awards programme will also evolve throughout 2015 to ensure CCA Accredited members gain formal industry wide recognition.
