JAG accreditation successfully launched the updated GRS standards in April 2021 and unaccredited services in the UK have completed the April GRS census based on the updated standards. Starting 1 October 2021, all services will evidence their self-assessment against the updated 2021 GRS standards. This will include an interim transition period for services detailed below.
For all unaccredited services
Those services that passed their GRS in October 2020 and April 2021 will be invited to complete their self-assessment and submit an assessment request. These services will be given a deadline of 30 September 2021 to submit a self-assessment request and provide evidence against the old standards.
Following this, all services will be moving to the updated 2021 standards on 1 October 2021 and proving evidence against this.
Services due their reaccreditation assessment
Services that are due to complete their reaccreditation in 2021 are unaffected by this change.
For all accredited services
Services due their annual review after 1 October 2021 will be automatically updated to the 2021 standards to complete their GRS.
