The self-study is your first opportunity to demonstrate compliance with the Hague standards.

The self-study is both a process and a document.

Process
ASP pursuing accreditation, approval, or renewal engage in a process of self-evaluation as they assess their compliance with Hague standards. This process determines how you can facilitate change in your policies, procedures, and standards of practice. The self-study can also explain and reinforce the necessary maintenance of practices that are currently in operation.

Document
ASP’s complete and submit a compilation of evidence documents called the Self Study prior to their site visit. The self-study serves as the first source of evidence for the Evaluator Team as they plan the site visit, gain knowledge about you or your management and adoption services, and begin to assess your compliance with the standards.

Your self study must be submitted to COA by the due date established in your timeline. Please see COA’s Tip Sheet: Preparing Self Study Evidence for more detailed information about preparing the self study.

If you do not have a MyCOA web-portal account, you must mail your self study on CD Rom or flash drive to COA at:
