What are the requirements for the documentation to be considered relevant? EcoVadis Support Team May 21, 2018 13:28 Updated Providing relevant documentation is crucial in earning quantitative credit in our evaluation process. Document reliability is the key and we are expecting to receive credible, formal and readily used documentation that is supporting your CSR management system. Principles in providing documentation: documentation shall be credible, formal and readily used and fully integrated in your CSR management system; documentation shall be authentic, pre-existing and complete; document content shall be appropriate for its intended purpose; document content shall be with high quality and understandable for its target audience; Documentation shall address CSR issues relevant to your company’s operational context; commitments, actions and/or reporting shall not be created solely for reactively satisfying our assessment i.e. answering our questionnaire; and direct or verbatim copying of objectives, actions or reporting from another organization or online sources without reasonable assurance of implementation will be grounds for disqualification of documentation.
