Survey: Assessment and satisfaction of HON services

We value the input of our members and Internet users which is why we regularly conduct surveys and investigations for this purpose.
Our latest survey is one designed to gauge our member satisfaction which includes new as well as more long standing members.

The questionnaires will be sent to Webmasters and online information providers who have been HONcode certified since one month and one year. The responses obtained from these will greatly help us to make any necessary modifications to improve our services.

Any comments or suggestions about the services of HON are always welcome at
