The IS v2.1 Technical Manual is now available to all ISAPs. ISCA owns all copyright in the components of the IS Rating Scheme (including, but not limited to, the IS Technical Manuals).

Accordingly, no-one may use any component of the IS Rating Scheme (including in the provision of consultancy services), unless such usage is in the context of undertaking an IS Rating pursuant to an ISCA Rating Agreement [to which that person is a party] OR it falls into one of the following categories:

  • It is used by an ISCA Member to determine the potential suitability of the rating tool for their organisation or specific projects; (Preliminary Assessment);
  • It is used by an ISCA Member to map and build internal competency/capability systems and processes around sustainable outcomes in sustainability for their organisation (Organisational Capability Building);
  • It is used by an ISCA Member to assess the performance of work being undertaken and express permission recorded in writing has been granted irrespective of whether achievement of the outcomes and impacts specified in the manual is a contractual requirement or not) (Performance Assessment);

Where express permission is granted (which is not ISCA’s preference) all learnings, data and innovation shall – as a condition of permission – be provided back free of charge to the community of practice and ISCA reserves the right to charge a licence fee or other payment or in-kind contribution
