Professional Ethics and Integrity in Testing and Certification

(19 June 2019)

The Council, Hong Kong Accreditation Service and Hong Kong Business Ethics Development Centre co-organised Seminar on Professional Ethics and Integrity in Testing and Certification. (Programme)

Integrity and credibility are foundation of good business. They also form part of the core value of Hong Kong’s testing and certification (T&C) sector and are an important aspect of our competitive edge. To sustain the sector’s good reputation, it is imperative for the T&C organisations to maintain a high standard of integrity and adopt good practices in their business and operations.

The seminar invited representatives from the ICAC and the Customs and Excise Department to offer useful advice on anti-corruption regulations and fair trading practice, and analyse the common risks and ethical issues that may be encountered by T&C practitioners. A T&C organisation also shared its view on the importance of practising anti-bribery measures in the T&C trade.

Topics of the seminar include:

  • Professional Integrity and Corruption Prevention (Presentation)
  • Experience sharing: Obtaining ISO 37001 Anti-bribery Management System Certification
  • An Introduction to the Fair Trading Sections under the Trade Descriptions Ordinance (Presentation(Chinese Only))
