Consultations for stakeholder input as a foundation for I-REC governance

Stakeholder input is an invaluable resource to ensure the fair and transparent creation of all governance documents, policies, and processes. We invite all stakeholders to share comments, questions, concerns, and suggestions through organized consultation(s) or to the I-REC Standard secretariat independently.

An overview of historical consultations can be seen here.

The continual consultation process for the Standard began with phases 1 and 2 in April 2021 and will continue through the next 4-5 months. These consultation phases focus on a specific portion of the Standard or associated governance documents and have been coordinated through direct communication such as e-mails, meetings, and newsletters, as well as being made available here with links to the associated surveys and forms.

The first consultation phase will focus on content from chapters 1-5 of the Standard.

In this first consultation form, we will ask about aspects such as the general form of the Standard, the definitions and principles, and if the purpose of the Standard is well understood.

The second consultation phase will focus on specific content from chapter 8 of the Standard.

In this second consultation form, we will ask about aspects such as the general responsibilities of Platform Operators, the guidelines for Platform development, infrastructure, implementation, and management. It is important for those who respond to this consultation to also review the Platform Guidance Document and Platform Preliminary Report.
