    Change Description

    The Compliance Operating Model

    • We request an update to the stage 2 compliance section (page 13 to 15) with a clearer set of requirements for stage 2 – no material change in requirements but increased clarity
    • We request the incorporation an obligation for the supplier to respond to a set of Business Continuity requirements, along with a set of evidence to accompany these responses
    • We request to add clarity to the statements around the 3 tiers of application and the HSCN Minimum Compliance Baseline (depending on a supplier’s CAS-T position) of Accredited, Audited and Asserted – more guidance is now available (pages 19 to 21)
    • We request that the uplifted versions of the Obligations Framework and the Compliance Addendum are embedded.
    Change Reason

    To ensure that the Operating Model and associated documents, tools and materials are:

    • as specific as they can be to provide clear guidance to suppliers
    • as easy to use as they can be for suppliers
    • Incorporating the latest Business Continuity requirements and correct alignment to CAS-T
