Confidentiality and Impartiality Policy Statement

The ISOP Solutions Inc (ISOP) Senior Leadership ensures that ISOP is operated in a manner to safeguard objectivity and impartiality in delivering certification services in a confidential and non-discriminatory manner.

ISOP policies and procedures shall be non-discriminatory and administered in a nondiscriminatory manner.

All ISOP personnel, contractors, and volunteers involved in the delivery of certification services:

a. Shall act objectively and be free from any undue commercial, financial or other pressures that could compromise impartiality, and

b. Shall adhere to strict confidentiality (confidential information means all technical and business information of ISOP and its clients that is of a confidential, trade secret and/or proprietary nature.)

c. Are under a continual obligation to disclose potential conflicts of interest.

Certification decisions shall be made by persons other than those who conducted the certification.

ISOP monitors conformance to this Confidentiality and Impartiality Policy through administration of its management system, including its process for managing risks.
