Accredited Hosts

SLCP works with a system of Accredited Hosts. 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. Click here for more information 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).

Passive Accredited Host: Recipient of data; do not distribute verified data to other system users. Cannot be used as a platform for facilities to perform assessment or verification.
