Statement of Impartiality

Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (Middle East) Asia

Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (Middle East) Asia (“HABC MEA”) takes the integrity of all of its qualifications very seriously, and as such, we have a duty to ensure the integrity, impartiality and potential conflict of interest are maintained in our qualifications and certifications schemes.

HABC MEA has designed specifications, policies and procedures to prevent the professional and personal interests of the directors, employees and associates from influencing the performance of their duties in the development, delivery and award of qualifications in accordance with any relevant regulatory criteria.

We have identified and assessed risks which may result in a conflict of interest or pose a threat to impartiality. Any conflict of interest is reported, documented in a Conflict of Interest Register and reviewed by HABC. HABC Policies and Procedures are reviewed on an annual basis and form part of the Director’s annual Statement of Compliance to the appropriate qualifications regulators.

In this way, HABC MEA ensure that all activities undertaken throughout the certification process are conducted in an independent and impartial manner and aim to inspire confidence in its qualifications and certification schemes to its customers and the public at large by:

  • The quality and competence of its personnel;
  • Offering high standards in our Customer Service;
  • Integrity and transparency of processes; and
  • Maintaining and protecting confidentiality.
