Orion's Commitment to Impartiality
Orion understands the importance of maintaining impartiality. It is the basis and strength of all third-party management system registration services. Orion's President and his staff have identified and either eliminated or managed situations that have the potential to cause a conflict of interest or impartiality. Orion ensures that all personnel who work for Orion, whether employees or subcontractors, are aware of Orion's attitude about avoiding potential conflicts of interest. This awareness is backed by Orion's orientation materials, auditor and staff training, Quality Manual, procedures, contracts and other documentation. Orion is committed to providing impartial services.
In addition, Orion's Committee to Safeguard Impartiality provides on-going oversight of Orion's impartiality. These controls combine to ensure that Orion is objective in all our services.
