Company Registration Monitors’ Checklist
The Scheme’s Monitors’ Checklist is used by the Scheme’s Monitors to assess the performance of registered companies.
The Checklist supports the Code of Considerate Practice and asks a number of questions to establish what level a company is performing to.
There are three Checklists available, each one catered to companies within a certain turnover banding. This allows the Checklist, and monitoring process, to be accessible and challenging to companies of all sizes.
The Checklists are divided into the sections of the Code and within each one, contain a number of bold and non-bold questions which the Monitors will ask.
Bold questions allow the Monitor to establish whether the company has achieved conformance with the Code. The non-bold, open questions directly support the bold questions by asking ‘what’ is being done and ‘how’ things are being addressed to meet and exceed the required standards.
The Code of Considerate Practice details the Scheme’s requirements and the Checklist’s bold questions establish if a company is meeting these requirements. The Checklist’s non-bold questions then ask ‘how’ these requirements are being met or exceeded.
Each question in the Checklist is also supported by a number of ‘prompts’ and these indicate specific items the Monitor may consider when establishing whether the company has met the expectations of that Checklist question. It is important to note that this list of prompts is not exhaustive and inevitably other items will need to be considered.
It is important to understand that the prompts are just that – prompts. They are on the Checklist to indicate the kind of issues that the Monitor will be looking at within that question, but they are not a ‘sub checklist of requirements’. Some will apply to all companies while others won’t – it is down to the Monitor to look at the size, type and location of the company and its sites, and use his or her judgement to decide what is expected.
The prompts can also be used by company managers to understand the questions but, as above, the list is not exhaustive and simply addressing each prompt will not necessarily provide a high score. Companies should use their initiative to decide what they can and should do to achieve the expectations of the Scheme.
The below image shows the format of each section of the Checklist:
Monitors will use their discretion when assessing whether questions and/or prompts are relevant. Where they are not, they will not be considered when assessing performance or awarding a score. Monitors will decide whether a question has been adequately addressed taking into account the size, type and location of the company and site(s), as well as the context of the project. Credit will not be given for activities that are planned but have yet to be carried out.
The additional questions detailed on the final page of the Checklist are for data gathering purposes only and the responses to these questions will have no impact upon the score awarded.
