This paper reports on the pre-implementation stage of an ELP study for the ESP learners and the ways to develop the selfassessment checklists for that implementation. Conducting a target situation analysis, identifying the actions that might take place in their works, finding out the related needs in these actions, and selecting the available descriptors from the 'Bank of Descriptors for Self-Assessment in ELP' in order to develop self-assessment checklists were the phases that occurred within the process of this development. This pre-implementation stage has helped us find answers to the following questions: (a) To what extent do the empirically scaled descriptors in the banks of descriptors available across Europe reflect the needs of the ESP students? (b) Do we need to develop more descriptors for ESP learners at finer levels and for different needs?
