Organizations operating out of one site:
a single location with one physical address,
e.g. Single Hotel or Single Tour-operator
Multi Site certification
Organizations at more than one location / physical address.All sites are individually audited against the GSTC Standard.
Although not all requirements would necessarily apply to all sites, e.g. hotel chain with properties in different locations, or tour operator working in different locations within the same destination.
Under this option, the group designates a central office that establishes internal controls and is responsible for sites compliance. UCS will audit the central office and a sample of sites instead of every site receiving an audit as in a multi-site certificate. E.g. group of Hotels / Tour-operators in one Destination , or group of small independent Hotels from different owners that wish to apply for the GSTC Standard Certification at a given destination.
