IPC Quality & Compliance

The IPC Global Support Unit (GSU)  has developed a Quality Assurance, Compliance and Learning Strategy to respond to the decision makers and users’ call for a mechanism to assess and improve the confidence, compliance level and overall quality of the IPC food insecurity analysis across countries and regions.

The strategy is a core element of Outcome 3 of the IPC Global Strategic Programme (2014-2018) – Technical Development, Quality and Compliance – which aims at strengthening the relevance and rigor of IPC as its use and application grows throughout the world.

The strategy is conceived as an add-on to the several quality assurance mechanisms that have been developed and are implemented by countries as integral part of the IPC core functions and protocols launched with the IPC Version 2.0.

In this framework, the IPC GSU has initiated a multi-agency process of the IPC Quality and Compliance Reviews.

The main purpose of the IPC Quality Review is to assess the technical quality of analyses and, where necessary, the process and the IPC governance structures, with the objective of producing high quality products.

The IPC Compliance Review is designed to evaluate whether the IPC tools and procedures are properly followed thus compliant against globally endorsed IPC standards and requirements.
