We are impartial
The certification body of GTÜ – GTÜ Zertifizierungsstelle - is an independent company. It is autonomous, impartial and not bound by professional instructions with regard to certification activities and decisions. We have committed ourselves to being impartial with regard to the certification activities of management systems. The GTÜ Zertifizierungsstelle and its employees, therefore, also do not carry out consultancy activities concerning certification or which could be regarded as compromising impartiality. We are not involved in or associated with companies that carry out any consultancy work in such a way that it could have any influence on our certification activities. By complying with these requirements, we ensure that there is no conflict of interest with respect to the requirements for independence under ISO/IEC 17021.
We conduct an annual risk analysis with regard to impartiality and conflicts of interest. These measures are monitored by our impartial steering committee. We declare that we understand the importance of impartiality in the performance of our management system certification activities and that we manage conflicts of interest in a way that does not compromise independence but that does ensure the objectivity of our management system certification activities.
We audit in a friendly manner, ask clear questions and understand you correctly.
