  2. Objectivity and Independence: Our auditors and assessors maintain a high level of objectivity and independence in their duties, ensuring that their judgments remain unbiased and based solely on facts.
  3. Training and Competence: We invest in the continuous development and training of our employees, ensuring they possess the necessary skills, knowledge, and expertise to deliver impartial services.
  4. Client Relationships: We prioritise building and maintaining strong, ethical, and professional relationships with our clients. Our team members are required to adhere strictly to our and the Association of Social Compliance Auditors (APSCA) Codes of Conduct, ensuring impartiality and transparency in all client interactions.
  5. Confidentiality: We treat all information obtained during our services with the utmost confidentiality and discretion, ensuring that sensitive data remains secure and protected.

Verisio has established effective mechanisms to investigate and sanction unethical behaviour, fostering a culture of integrity throughout our organisation. We also maintain an effective grievance mechanism, enabling employees and stakeholders to voice concerns and report any violations of our policies or ethical standards via a third party anonymous speak-up solution:
