Welcome to the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability

A stronger CHS

The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS) has been updated in 2024!

Explore this website to learn more about the CHS and how it can help your organisation to improve quality and accountability.

Access the updated standard, which was launched in March 2024 following a two-year extensive global and participatory consultation process with more than 4000 contributors from more than 90 countries.

The result is an strenghtened standard that recognises the leading role of communities in finding local solutions. 

The CHS 2024 is more people-centred, user-friendly and more accessible standard, so it can be used by any person or organisation providing support to people during crises.
