GoodWeave utilizes a multi-stakeholder Standards Committee to guide the development and revision of all standards. As part of the standard development process, all interested parties are invited to participate in at least two rounds of public consultations. All comments are received and considered by the Standards Committee before their final approval. This approach ensures a variety of stakeholders are informed, involved, collaborated with, and empowered across the entire standard development process.
