Participant self-evaluation checklist

Since September 1st, 2023, the Certification Bodies assume responsibility for the initial assessment of participation in the Better Life label for secondary business types. To assist (new) businesses, a checklist has been developed for each business type, enabling businesses to evaluate their own compliance with the basic requirements for participation and to identify any necessary adjustments for the certification audit.

While the use of the checklist is not mandatory, we highly encourage new participants to make use of this tool. By utilizing the checklist, businesses are able to better prepare for the initial assessment conducted by the Certification Bodies. The checklists have been created based on the new criteria that have entered into force on September 1, 2023. Please note that this is an abridged version of the entire list of criteria, focused on the basic requirements. It is essential to meet all criteria relevant to your specific business type, which can be found here.

Below, you will find a link for each business type, leading you to the respective page where the checklist is located:
