As part of its impartiality process, GMCS requires that each auditor and each member of the Certification Committee attest to impartiality and certify that they have no Conflicts of Interest as they undertake any audit or review any client for certification.

Our top management is fully committed to ensuring that certificates of registration issued to our clients are free from any lack of impartiality and conflicts of interest.
