AccountAbility has just released a document on the current and proposed governance for the AA1000 series standards. Is this what is needed?
My view is that the Community Interest Company framework is a good move. However the intellectual property associated with the standards should be moved into the CIC.
Also, there is no mention of the role of stakeholders in supporting and developing the standards. Where is the multi-stakeholder input? This may not be quite so formally built in to the legal constitution, but it does need formal recognition within the governance structure.
