Facilities accredited as Gold Baby Friendly service must revalidate after one year and each subsequent three years in order that effective maintenance and progress of standards may be monitored. This revalidation process will include an update from the leadership team on progress, successes and challenges over the first year, a review of progress with any recommendations made in last year’s Achieving Sustainability assessment report, annual audit results, the most recent infant feeding data and confirmation of continuing adherence to the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes (the Code).

Revalidation submissions 

Please use this form to tell us the story of your progress with Achieving Sustainability standards within the last year. This will include submission from your portfolio of relevant documents and details and documentation of where changes have occurred. Facilities are requested to complete the form and submit along with portfolio evidence a week before the revalidation date scheduled.

Annual reports
