Commitment to Impartiality

ECI is committed to impartiality and objectivity in every aspect of our operation and understands the importance of carrying out all of its certification activities.  We have intentionally structured the organization and programs to segregate responsibilities to facilitate impartiality and objectivity.

ECI’s processes and procedures are governed by its Bylaws, Policies Manual, and Code of Conduct and Ethics.  ECI understands the threat to impartiality that include, but are not limited to, self-interest, activities from related bodies, and relationships of personnel, financial interests, conflict of interest, familiarity, and intimidation.

ECI adheres to principles of impartiality in all its dealings.  All applications, candidates and certified persons are subject to the same consistent criteria, all policies and procedures are consistently followed and compliance with procedures is audited annually. Impartiality is a consideration across all aspects of ECI’s certification programs and its personnel.

We welcome any suggestions on how we can improve our implementation of certification activities.
