CSAC decisions regarding consensus standards are submitted to the Board of Directors. The Board can affirm or deny a CSAC decision. All consensus standards that are recommended must be ratified by the Board for endorsement.
Publication of Endorsement Status
After ratification by the NQF Board, the endorsement status of a consensus standard or set of standards is published on the NQF website. In addition, a searchable list of all NQF-endorsed® national voluntary consensus standards is available through the NQF website.
