Commitment to Impartiality, Independence and Integrity
Our top management is committed and responsible to impartiality and makes this impartiality statement publicly available.
Our employees who evaluate products or management systems for certification purposes must not engage in consultation or technical advice for these. Accreditation standards apply strict prohibitions, e.g. in case that products are tested by bodies (Customers or agents representing Customers) who have been involved with design, manufacturing or sale of the products.
In order to safeguard our professional reputation as Arsenal Testhouse, we expect our employees and external personnel to act ethically and impartially in the longterm interest of our company and society. We require personnel, internal and external, to reveal any situation known to them that may expose them or our company to a conflict of interests. Our accreditation bodies shall use this information to identify threats to impartiality raised by the activities of such personnel or by the organizations that employ them. We shall not use personnel, internal or external, or buy products/services from direct Clients, until we can demonstrate that the risks or threats to impartiality are reduced to an acceptable level.
