The Verification Framework is designed to ensure a consistent, systematic approach to assessing and verifying how the CHS is applied. It sets out indicators for the requirements (Key Actions and Organisational Responsibilities) under each CHS Commitment and Quality Criterion and contains guiding questions to inform each of those indicators. The indicators in the Verification Framework are taken directly from the requirements of the Nine CHS Commitments, meaning the 36 Key Actions and the 26 Organisational Responsibilities in the CHS have been turned into 62 indicators. Note that the guiding questions elaborate on the guiding questions found in the CHS Guidance Notes and Indicators. They are not exhaustive or prescriptive but a guide to where information and evidence might be found that supports application of the CHS requirements.
