To ensure the validity of both the assessment methodology and the data used in the annual report cards produced by the Healthy Rivers to Reef Partnership, review by the Reef Plan Independent Science Panel (ISP) has been included at key points during their development. Specifically, the ISP has reviewed the assessment methodologies for all data included in the report cards produced to date and the accompanying technical reports.

After the release of the Mackay-Whitsunday 2014 Pilot Report Card, a comprehensive review was undertaken of the indicators, methodology, and scoring undertaken to obtain the report card results. This review resulted in a number of improvements to the report card methodologies. The adopted improvements, and how they impacted on the results of the Mackay-Whitsunday 2014 Pilot Report Card, can be found in the 2015 technical reports.
