The Self Assessment Questionnaire is defined by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

A Self Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) is a tool that organizations can use to assess their own performance against a set of standards or best practices. In the context of quality management, an SAQ is often used to assess an organization's compliance with a particular quality standard, such as ISO 9001.

An SAQ typically consists of a series of questions or statements related to the requirements of the standard. The organization responds to these questions or statements by indicating whether they are in compliance or not. The SAQ may also include space for the organization to provide additional information or explanations about their responses.

SAQs can be used as a starting point for an organization to identify areas where they need to improve their quality management system (QMS) in order to meet the requirements of the standard. They can also be used as a tool for ongoing monitoring and improvement of the QMS. Some quality standards organizations, such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), provide SAQs as a resource for organizations seeking to certify their QMS to the standard.
