EHNAC recognizes that its accredited entities (“Accredited Entities”) and accreditation candidates (“Accreditation Candidates”) operate in a dynamic business environment that includes many business and legal variables ancillary to the fundamental scope of EHNAC’s accreditation process.
However, because that environment involves business and legal risks that may impact (1) EHNAC accrediting operations; and (2) accreditation eligibility, EHNAC has developed a collaborative process to (A) enable Accredited Entities and Accreditation Candidates to identify significant business, financial, operational and legal developments that have the potential to compromise or undermine their ability to meet the EHNAC Accreditation Criteria (“Sentinel Events”) and (B) provide EHNAC with written notification of such Sentinel Events.
Business risk evaluation is necessary for EHNAC to accomplish the following objectives in a timely manner: 1. A Sentinel Event is any significant material impacting development, action or change in the business, financial, operational or legal status of an entity, which occurs (1) with respect to an Accredited Entity, after accreditation, or (2) with respect to an Accreditation Candidate, after the application has been submitted to EHNAC.
Written notification in the manner described in Section 3 below must be received by EHNAC no later than three (3) business days from when the Sentinel Event occurs. As part of the notification process, the Accredited Entity or Accreditation Candidate shall provide an officer of EHNAC with the “known facts,” as determined to have a material impact, and shall continue to provide EHNAC written notice of additional relevant information as such information becomes “known facts.” The additional relevant information shall be delivered to EHNAC by an email sent to [email protected] by a fax sent to (860) 760-6630.Sentinel-2 provides high-resolution optical imagery for land services.It provides for example, imagery of vegetation, soil and water cover, inland waterways and coastal areas.Failure to provide such notification could result in loss of Accreditation, loss of Candidacy status or such other action as EHNAC may determine to be appropriate. “Known facts” shall include, but not be limited to, (A) any relevant data, information or circumstances regarding a Sentinel Event having a material impact which an Accredited Entity or Accreditation Candidate (i) is required by law, by a contract to which it is a party, or by any other legal obligation to report or disclose to a third party, or (ii) has disclosed in a public statement or in any non-confidential manner; (B) reports or information that must be reported to a government agency; and (C) all findings of fact in the form of an agency action by a duly authorized regulatory agency or in a judgment by a court of original jurisdiction, notwithstanding any subsequent appeals.The written notification should include the following information: A. EHNAC Accreditation impact(s) or considerations that could materially and adversely affect the company’s compliance with the Accreditation Criteria; e.g., changes in key executive management in a small company or release of a press announcement in a public company E. If the Sentinel Event has resulted in non-conformity with the Accreditation Criteria, a proposed plan to restore conformity, i.e., an explanation in reasonable detail of how the company will promptly reestablish conformity with all applicable EHNAC Accreditation Criteria G. The following is an illustrative but not exhaustive topical list of Sentinel Events. Within seventy-two (72) hours of EHNAC’s receipt of such written notice, the Executive Director of EHNAC, if he/she deems the Sentinel Event to be of a materially substantive nature, shall convene a meeting of the Ad Hoc Sentinel Event Committee of EHNAC (“Committee”), consisting of three EHNAC Commissioners, to consider the matter.Our team is dedicated to manufacturing, servicing, upgrading and supporting the Red Bare CCR.
