12.2
Readiness for Confirmation
The WSS set is ready for confirmation when the Process participants (including the Process
Leader, the Identification Team, and the Convened Group) are satisfied that they can
demonstrate fidelity to the Process; can justify that the WSS set will afford reasonable
assurance of adequate protection for workers, the public, and the environment; and that the
WSS set is feasible for implementation. This means that confirmation may begin when, in their
view, the Process participants have completed, documented, and are prepared to report the
results of their use of the N&S Process.
Confirmation itself is neither a self-assessment nor a forum for adjudicating issues unresolved
by the Identification Team. Self-assessments of the Process and its results can be of great
value and should be conducted prior to confirmation. Such self-assessments (sometimes
referred to as "murder boards") should be rigorous to ensure the WSS set and Process
documentation are ready to withstand scrutiny by the Confirmation Team. Issues or questions
raised during confirmation should be resolved between the Confirmation and Identification
Teams, or if necessary, with the Convened Group. Confirmation itself should not be undertaken
until all participants, including the Convened Group, are satisfied that all previous process
elements have been fully completed and appropriately documented. A sample of evaluation
criteria to be used in the development of self-assessment programs for evaluating the
performance of the N&S Process and confirming readiness is provided in Appendix G.
Experience with the Process has demonstrated that on occasion readiness for confirmation is
judged primarily against the adequacy of the WSS set and at the expense of demonstration that
implementation of the set will be feasible. The Confirmation Team may lack the Identification
Team's familiarity with local infrastructures for planning and doing work. Confirmers may benefit
from briefings or documentation regarding the "as is" condition that is the foundation upon which
the new WSS set will be laid.

Role of the Identification Team
The work of the Identification Team, including their documentation, provides the starting point
for confirmation as well as approval of the WSS set. It is essential for the Identification Team to
