DG ECHO’s certified partners: Periodic Assessment launched!

The periodic assessment’s objective is to ensure annually the compliance with the conditions that come with the EU Humanitarian Certificate.

It is comprised of two parts:

  • The financial capacity assessment – performed through the Commission’s Central Validation service (around September/October)
  • The administrative assessment – performed through APPEL (around December)

Therefore, DG ECHO has launched on December 1st 2021 the administrative part of the periodic assessment for NGO certified partners. Via APPEL, NGOs need to answer a 3-question form as well as to re-submit the Declaration on Honour.

The administrative periodic assessment will be open from 1 December 2021 to 31 December 2021.
