  1. Each Organization shall return a renewal of compliance every three years.

Why
Why
Periodic review of policies and practices is an essential governance responsibility. Organizational practices evolve as a result of experience and reflection in a learning culture. As well, people come and go, and knowledge of organizational values and practices can be lost. The process of completing the renewal of compliance provides an opportunity for reflection and learning within the Organization. As Organizations share their learnings with CCIC through the renewal of compliance, the Council is made aware of ways in which practice is evolving in the membership and how it might be further strengthened through dialogue, learning activities or future modifications to the Standards.
