Accredited Hosts

SLCP works with a system of Accredited Hosts (AHs). An SLCP assessment can be carried out using any of the Accredited Hosts’ platforms. Once an SLCP assessment has been verified, it is shared from the Accredited Host’s platform to the SLCP Gateway. In their Gateway account, facilities can choose to share their verified assessment data with any of the other Accredited Hosts. This means that no matter which Accredited Host platform is used to complete an SLCP assessment, the verified data can be accessed via any of the Accredited Hosts. Manufacturers, brands and other stakeholders are therefore able to use their preferred Accredited Host to complete an SLCP assessment and/ or to access verified SLCP data.

There are two types of Accredited Hosts: active and passive. See below for a short description and a list of our current AHs. For more information, visit our FAQ about the difference of active and passive AHs.

Active Accredited Host: Holder of data that is responsible for distribution of verified data to system users such as brands, standard holders, manufacturers who use the Gateway, either to upload or download data for their purpose(s). Can be used as a platform for facilities to perform assessment and verification.

Passive Accredited Host:  Store SLCP assessment data on their platform and provide additional data analytics and sharing services to users such as brands, standard holders, and manufacturers. Cannot be used as a platform for facilities to perform assessment or verification.
