The ALS was created to improve the competency of assessors and the quality of assessment reports. This is tied to the larger objective of the HCV Network to ensure the consistent use of the HCV Approach and to contribute to the conservation of environmental and social values. By improving HCV and HCV-HCSA assessments, the ALS helps to ensure that values are properly identified and subsequently conserved or maintained in the long term.

The ALS Specification explains the overall functioning of the ALS.
