What are assurance activities?

Sector organisations including IGEM, undertake reviews, evaluations, debriefs, investigations, audits, and monitoring activities. These are ways of  drawing on information or evidence to answer certain questions such as:

  • What is happening?
  • Why is it happening?
  • Does it meet standards?
  • Does it fulfil commitments?
  • Does it achieve intended outcomes?

The findings are then used to support an assurance, or a provide a feeling of confidence in the ability of the emergency management system.

Assurance activities are conducted before, during and after emergencies, and results may be published for transparency and accountability.
