This section describes the measures that NUTEK and its employees, contractors, contributors, committees and Impartiality Committee undertake to manage any conflict of interest to ensure the objectivity and impartiality of the management system certification activities.

NUTEK is, on account of its size and organization of suppliers, customers, and team members, completely independent, both in terms of professional decisions and financially. 


The higher management levels of the NUTEK undertakes to comply with all national and international requirements (standards, laws, and regulations) on the operation of testing, inspection, certification bodies. 


To ensure the impartiality of services of any third party, in particular the accredited technical services (such as testing, monitoring, calibration, certification, verification, and compliance reviews), these were clearly separated from any consulting services within the NUTEK. 


The accredited testing, inspection, certification bodies of the NUTEK are “Third Party” and meet national and international requirements for operating a testing laboratory, an inspection body (Type A), and a certification body. 


Through permanent and appropriate measures (Committee to ensure impartiality, surveillance, monitoring, internal audits, regular analysis of potential conflicts of interest of accredited bodies, etc.), it is ensured by upper management that if consulting services are offered by a company of the NUTEK, accredited testing, inspection, certification, verification services will be offered or carried out by other companies of the NUTEK. 


For all employees of the NUTEK, acting with integrity is a matter of course. Impartiality is supported by the complete professional operational freedom of the authorized signatory personnel in the accredited areas. 


Every employee has undertaken to fully disclose situations that may lead to conflicts of interests. This notification is made in such cases to the supervisor, who decides, together with the employee, and taking into account all legal and normative requirements, how the settlement of the conflict of interest is to be achieved. 


Through the permanent working relationship as salaried employees in NUTEK and through an industry-compliant wage, staff payment is not dependent on the amount of testing, inspection, and certification work carried out. 


NUTEK shall not, under any circumstances, involve in designing, production, installation, distribution or maintenance activities of the product it will certify or in designing, application, operation or maintenance activities of the process it will certify or in designing, implementation, provision or continuation activities of the service it will certify. 


NUTEK does not engage in any preventive or restrictive activities for all applicants under a non-discriminatory business model, except for the relevant procedures and policies, regardless of the size of the client, the number of certifications, working conditions, membership of any association or group. The procedures under the Quality Management system do not contain any restrictive provisions other than those specified restrictions in the ISO/IEC 17065 standard.  


The top management of the NUTEK establish, document and maintain the quality policy and quality objectives and ensures that they are acknowledged and implemented at all levels of the certification body’s organization.
