• Where we need to and have utilized the services of an external expert, we shall evaluate the usefulness and sufficiency of work performed by such external expert and also perform appropriate testing to confirm the findings of the external expert.


• Avoid engagements and activities that impair, or may appear to impair our independence or objectivity. For existing engagement, should a situation arise that could impair our independence and objectivity or interfere with any of our respective duties and result in conflict of interest; we shall discuss this with the client and agree on appropriate actions.


• Quality based on competence, diligence and due care is our watch word and we continuously strive to ensure that quality is not just an add-on, but embedded in our engagement processes. This way, we make quality everybody’s responsibility and not just the outcome of our internal quality control review that monitors compliance with our internal policies, standards and procedures and ensure that work done to arrive at our recommendations, conclusions and opinions are adequate and well documented.


• Maintain the confidentiality of information obtained in the course of our duties unless disclosure is required by law, regulatory duties, professional obligation, or permitted by client. The duty of confidentiality continues beyond the conclusion of the assignment or termination of relationship.


• When in a special relation with a client or responsible for managing its asset, we will ensure that we take action that are optimal and consistent with the stated objectives and constraints.


• Communicate with relevant entities through appropriate channels, the results of our work disclosing all material facts known to us, which if not disclosed could either distort our deliverables or conceal unlawful practices.  Our communications strive to be objective, clear, concise, constructive, complete and timely.


• We actively maintain a follow-up process on all our engagements, to monitor and determine that recommended management actions have either been effectively implemented or that those formally charged with corporate governance has by default accepted the risks and rewards of not taking corrective actions. We are not responsible for implementing corrective actions but can readily assist when formally engaged to do so.
