AA1000SES revision: Final call for comments

Last call for comments on the first consultation draft of the AA1000SES 2nd edition

We are now nearing the end of the first public consultation phase for the revision of the AA1000SES.

On March 10th 2010, the draft AA1000SES currently on the wiki - - will be closed for public comment. The next step is for the AccountAbility AA1000SES Technical Committee to review all input to date when they meet on 24 March in London. A second consultation draft will then be prepared, and be opened for the next round of public consultation in April.

The first draft of the 2nd edition AA1000SES was uploaded onto the dedicated wiki platform in October 2009. This draft has since been used as the basis for more than 20 global consultation workshops which have taken place from Sao Paulo to Seoul. The recommendations which have come out of the consultation workshops are available on the wiki site and will be considered by the Technical Committee. You can view the recommendations here

We invite you to comment directly on the current draft at or leave a comment on the General Comments page here
