The process by which the validity of the assessment process is ensured (i.e. the checks and balances in the assessment system to ensure that what should happen when people are assessed, does happen). Its primary purpose is quality assurance, confirming that people in different places are assessed in the same way, with a common interpretation of the standards. There are two levels of verification: Individual (or technical) Verification – ensures employee competence by checking individual assessments undertaken by the Verifier & Process or System Verification – ensures a systematic process is established and procedures are followed.
