Staff and Sub contractor Requirements
All information received by or available to LiberoGroup. Staff, sub-contractors or committee members (in whatever format) received in conducting services, or during other certification activities, or during any dealings with an organisation for any other reason shall be regarded as strictly confidential and shall not be divulged to any 3rd party without the express permission of the organisation or individual concerned. The requirement to keep confidential any information will also include any organisation that has a legitimate right to audit or inspect LiberoGroup.
Where LiberoGroup is required by law to release confidential information to a third party the client or individual concerned shall, unless regulated by law, be notified in advance of the information provided.
However, where the organisation is seen to be operating contrary to legal requirements or has operating practices which pose a danger to staff, customers or the environment LiberoGroup reserves the right to immediately report any such incident to the relevant authority. Any such reporting will only be undertaken with the permission of the General Director.
Access to Records
All records will be retained in a secure manner, only accessible to authorised staff via either paper records or password controlled electronic records. Sub-contractors will be limited to accessing information produced by them in conducting a service. Records will only be made available to organisations who can demonstrate a legitimate (and legal) right to view those records and specifically to Accreditation Bodies.
All staff, Sub Contractors, Directors and Committee Members will be required to agree to the LiberoGroup confidentiality policy and sign a confidentiality agreement. Sub-contractors will also sign an agreement which also contains the responsibility to maintain confidentiality.
