  1. 1. Status of the 2014 systematic review of ISO 26000:2010 and preliminary results of the 2014 PPO survey By Staffan Söderberg Vice Chair Post Publication Organization ISO 26000 January 21, 2014
  2. 2. A few words on the context of the ISO systematic review and the parallel PPO survey
  3. 3. Background (1) • The final plenary meeting of the international Working Group on Social Responsibility (WG SR) it recommended that the systematic review of the International Standard ISO 26000:2100 was to take place no later that 3 years after publication • “Systematic review” is a well defined procedure within ISO, through which all full members of ISO (approximately 117 National Standards Bodies, NSBs, countries) are asked if the standard should be – Confirmed – Revised/amended – Converted into another form of deliverable, or – Withdrawn • The systematic review, 5 months, was launched to the member bodies October 15, 2013 and ends March 15, 2014.
  4. 4. Background (2) • In parallel, the Post Publication Organisation (PPO, the former leadership of WG SR from the ISO member bodies of Sweden and Brazil) launched a survey to all 164 ISO member bodies and the ISO 26000 liaison organisations in order to identify additional information. • PPO leadership will consult PPO Stakeholder Advisory Group (PPO SAG, 38 delegates, 27 alternates, built from the former WG SR Chairman Advisory Group) and the PPO National Standards Bodies Information Network (PPO NIN, 60+ members from 30+ NSBs) • PPO leadership issues its final recommendation to ISO Technical Management Board (ISO TMB) for their decision which will be taken hopefully before summer holiday 2014. • PPO will base its final recommendation on all information found, especially the input from the stakeholder advisory group physical meeting in April 2014.
  5. 5. Background (3) The members of the PPO SAG were selected by the stakeholder groups themselves apart from those individuals that are important for the WG SR institutional memory.

  6. 6. Background (4) Since the publication of in October 2010 the PPO has surveyed and gathered information in order to give advice to ISO when needed. Each stakeholder group is represented by 4 representatives and 4 alternatives. Before March 15 the composition and membership of PPO SAG will be re-confirmed. It is up to each stakeholder group to set up and apply procedures to engage their stakeholder group and appoint representatives / alternates. The PPO leadership is not involved in these procedures but can invite additional members to PPO SAG if certain stakeholders or expert areas are not represented and PPO leadership needs additional advice.
  7. 7. Background (5) ISO 26000 PPO Terms of Reference Assess and advise ISO/TMB on any proposals to revise ISO 26000 Advise ISO/CS on requests for interpretation of ISO 26000 from NSBs Advise ISO/CS on promotion, communication and training activities Gather information to identify good and bad practices in using ISO 26000, and report to ISO/CS Review and assess results of the systematic review and advise ISO/TMB.
  8. 8. Results from the ISO systematic review and the PPO survey
  9. 9. Results from the ISO systematic review The systematic review ends March 15 and the results will analyzed and integrated in the PPO advice to ISO TMB
  10. 10. Results from the PPO 2014 survey The results from the PPO Survey have been received and some of the results have been analyzed and are presented in the following slides. The narrative responses are under analysis and the results will be available, communicated and integrated in the PPO advice to ISO TMB. 164 ISO member bodies and the former WG SR liaisons were surveyed. 101 response-files received out of which only 55 were from known countries. Therefore, the results presented here are preliminary and not final as some countries must clarify some responses. The reason why this preliminary data is presented already now is that there are important local meetings taking place during January and February and although preliminary, this information may help the meetings. Approximately 50 % of the respondents are so called developing countries and 50 % are so called developed countries.
  11. 11. Results from the PPO survey, countries Responses from (tbc): Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bhutan, Bosnia Hercegovina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cote D’Ivoire, Croatia, Czech republic, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Eritrea, Finland, France, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Malawi, Malta, Montenegro, Namibia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Nigeria, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, Suriname, Sweden, Thailand, U AE, UK, USA, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, 101 responses: 11 of these submitted only a partially completed response 15 of these submitted more than one reply either through different individuals or from the same individual 9 responses were complete/incomplete and from an unknown country

  13. 13. 2. Number of ISO 26000 sold or made available for free - to date Sold: Approximately 16000 (12000 by end of 2012) Note: Basically all ISO standards are sold by national standards bodies who sets its own price taking into account a a common ISO pricing policy.

  14. 14. 3. Perceived national interest in ISO 26000 Decreasing: 2 % (3 % in 2012) Constant: 52 % (57 %) Increasing: 45 % (40 %)
  15. 15. 4. Local National Mirror Committees (NMC) within the National Standards Bodies • Yes we have an active NMC: approximately 80 % (approximately as in 2012) • Note: PPO observation is that there are still local challenges in the definitions of stakeholder, stakeholder categories and the allowing of stakeholders to select their own representatives and act independently
  16. 16. 5. Stakeholders represented in the local National Mirror Committees (NMC) How many of NMCs have the following stakeholder groups represented among its members: • • • • • • Consumers 70 % (2102: 70 %) Industry 90 % (90 %) Labor 80 % (66 %) Government 65 % (87 %) Non-governmental organisations 85 % (85 %) Service, support, research, others 85 % (82 %)

  21. 21. A few words on the next steps of the systematic review
  22. 22. Next step, from February 2014 1. PPO leadership will communicate the final results of the PPO survey, together with the results of the ISO systematic review, as soon as possible after March 15 2. The PPO leadership will meet and discuss the results with PPO SAG and where needed call for additional information from PPO NIN 3. The PPO leadership will submit its final recommendations to ISO TMB before their meeting that will take place late Q2 2014. The recommendations will be based on the PPO survey, advice form PPO SAG and PPO NIN, and any other relevant information found.
