BEACH ASSESSMENT is a rating system for the sustainability of Beach Activities in relation to the context and to the activities related to beaches tourism.

The approach to the implementation of BA is based on integrated processes and multidisciplinary methods.

BA is set up like a certification process.

The scoring system is organized in prerequisites and credits.

The prerequisites are required and not give rise to a score; they are present in the Categories Design, Realization, Management activities and Innovation

Credits are discretionary and identify the benefits to which a score corresponds that, depending on the case, ranges from 1 to 6 points.

The sum of the score achieved leads to 4 certification levels

Basic certification: between 40 and 49 points

Gold: between 60 and 79 points

 

Platinum: over 80 points
