In January 2013, 7 EU level associations agreed on a voluntary framework to implement and enforce the Principles of Good Practice.
This document lays down the general features of the framework, including its scope, operational requirements, provisions on the governance of The Initiative, and performance indicators to help measure effectiveness and impact. This framework offers a complement to EU and national rules and regulations or other voluntary schemes and therefore does not replace them.
Please find the Framework in 23 languages below. Please note that in case of doubt with the translations, the English version would prevail.
