Deontology and Integrity

Values under control.

OBJECTIVITY, ETHICS AND INTEGRITY ARE IN OUR DNA


At Vinçotte, we work according to sound corporate governance based on ethics and integrity, and we defend this under all circumstances.

We do everything possible to strike the right balance between dynamic enterprise and risk management. That is why we organise our activities according to a vision that is focused on growth and long-term success.

Each and every employee in our organisation strives for the optimal balance between risk and results in their day-to-day operations.

As a service provider for whom expertise is essential, we believe that a robust culture of sound policy and ethical behaviour is fundamental to the way we do business.

Vinçotte nv objectivity declaration 

Impartial and objective: that speaks for itself. However, we go one step further by committing to an impartiality declaration based on our accreditations.

  • All our employees sign a document in which they commit themselves to remaining impartial and objective.
  • We actively enforce certification regulations. This is a document that contains general terms and conditions for the cooperation between Vinçotte nv and our clients.
  • Our impartiality committee guarantees our objectivity and impartiality at all times. After all, this committee comprises representatives from our clients, our clients' customers and other bodies who ensure that we take the right measures to guarantee objectivity and impartiality. This committee also acts as a control body.
  • The role of the audit team and certification committee in the certification process differs. It is the certification committee that decides whether or not to award the certificate. The certification decision is invariably taken by someone who is not a member of the audit team. We additionally analyse incompatibilities to avoid conflicts of interest. The audit process is continually assessed using various resources: verification of the audit documentation, assessment of the audit documentation used to make certification decisions, and witness audits via direct observation and internal audits.
  • We also consider accreditation requirements and analyse potential conflicts of interest in our collaborations with consultancy companies. Various control mechanisms avoid or limit impartiality.
