In March 2012, after two-year work of experts from universities and other specialist workplaces in the Czech Republic as well as that of practitioners from the cities, the "Methodology for evaluation of Local Agenda category A" has been approved. In the CZ, LA21 has a chart of quality of the participating municipalities and regions - from the "applicants" to categories "D", "C", "B" ending with the highest category "A".
