How Do We Ensure Impartiality?
The procedures in place at B-ADVANCY Certification Ltd ensure that all of our auditors maintain impartiality and integrity throughout the assessment process. The auditor must sign a contract stating that he or she has no conflicts of interest and that he or she will maintain strict confidentiality upon becoming a contractor.
All employees and contractors must also sign the ADVANCY Code of Ethics, which outlines the company's values, principles, and procedures. All B-ADVANCY auditors are required to adhere to procedures designed to ensure impartiality and integrity during the assessment process.
