AccountAbility's new governance structure for its AA1000 series of Standards comprises an independent Standards Board and two specialist Technical Committees which will ensure the independence of the AA1000 standards and play an important role in building on the recent successful developments to the standards. This new structure is crucial in ensuring AA1000 standards retain their identity as internationally accepted, credible, multi-stakeholder standards, and will also help push the standards to the next level in terms of international understanding and influence. AccountAbility will remain the secretariat of the AA1000 standards.
