Biennial Reports 2013–2014

(Jump to: Regular Member Reports / Network Member Reports)

A template for Biennial Reports covering the interval 2013–2014, created by the Membership and Accreditation Subcommittee of the WDS Scientific Committee (WDS-SC), was presented at the 2014 WDS Members’ Forum. Inviting comments on this template, the WDS International Programme Office (WDS-IPO) then sent the final version to all WDS Regular and Network Members in mid-January 2014.

The WDS-IPO had received the majority of completed Biennial Reports by May 2014. These were subsequently divided up randomly among the WDS-SC for expedited review alongside the consolidated feedback from each WDS Member's initial accreditation. Only one reviewer was allocated for each Report, and the Reports of WDS Members closest to Periodic Review were given highest priority.

The 2013–2014 Reports will act as support documents when each Organization's WDS membership is next reviewed, since they highlight to the WDS-SC any certification criteria that require additional evidence; hence, simplifying the process.
