The HCV Network and the HCS Approach Steering Group are pleased to announce the publication of the new HCV-HCSA Assessment Manual, the technical reference document for when the HCV and HCS Approaches are jointly used.

From November 2017, High Carbon Stock Approach (HCSA) Members are required to conduct integrated HCV-HCSA assessments. These assessments must be led by HCVN-licensed assessors, who are required to follow the new HCV-HCSA Assessment Manual and submit all assessment reports for evaluation to the HCVN Assessor Licensing Scheme (ALS).
