Learn English – Term describing the “in good standing” conditional


As I understand it, the phrase "in good standing" describes a person or entity having complied with all their explicit obligations and therefore has no negative history so far. Being "in good standing" or having "lost good standing" are the two possible conditions, what is the umbrella term that would describe these?

I need to use this in a text-based layout:

This person is in good standing.


This person has lost good standing.

My question is, what is the best term to use in place of "Feedback" in the heading in the above two examples?
