What’s involved

MandB-APS_colourIn order to achieve APS, you need to demonstrate that your project can meet the 10 requirements of the standard and this is done through the completion of an assessment visit by one of MBF’s trained assessors.

Prior to the assessment visit, you complete an initial self-assessment using our self-assessment tool. This  enables you to benchmark your project against the 10 requirements of the standard and assess whether there are any areas that you need to address in order to meet the requirements.

There are just 5 simple steps to achieving APS (see diagram below) and you can also download our Achieving APS: step-by-step guide (PDF) which takes you through each step in more detail.
