CID members are required to complete the Code of Conduct Compliance Self-Assessment (CSA) every three years.

The CSA is a true self-assessment and tracks the Code Principles and Obligations, allowing signatory organisations to assess their own compliance as Compliant, Partly Compliant, Non-Compliant or Not Applicable - and provide the relevant supporting explanation to describe the way in which the state of compliance is achieved.

There are a few mandatory principles in the Code of Conduct:

B.1.5 Non-development activity

B.2.3 Control of funds and resources

B.3.4 Protection of children

B.5 Emergency management (if undertaken)

D.6 Complaints-handling

Many of the other principles and obligations are progressive, meaning that organisations can indicate they are progressing in implementing the obligations in order to reach full compliance over time.
