The Board of the PCS Association publishes its framework for analysing jurisdiction specific PCS Label criteria

It is not uncommon for PCS to be approached by market participants suggesting new criteria or amending existing criteria to reflect the specificities of a given jurisdiction. To assist with the task of analysing such requests, the PCS Board has created an an analytical framework designed to provide consistency in the process and the intellectual approach.

To assist stakeholders who may wish to approach PCS with requests for jurisdiction specific criteria, the Board has chosen to publish a description of this framework.  Attention must be drawn, however, to the final paragraph of this paper which stresses that this approach is not dispositive, nor does it limit the Board’s discretion to decline to make criteria changes it believes, for whatever reason, are not compatible with the nature of the PCS Label.
