Modules & Rules

Specialist Modules

The Charter Modules form the backbone of our internationally recognised standard. In order to qualify for membership of the Scheme, all members must be certified in the core standards plus any individual modules that apply to the products they produce.

Charter Rules

The Charter Rules provide new applicants, existing scheme members and service providers with a clear guide to the standards that all members are bound by. The rules provide a guide to the procedures for application, audit, certification, complaints and appeals

Note: The rules should be read in conjunction with the relevant Modules to understand a member’s responsibilities under the scheme.
