This policy describes how we will achieve our aims, in order to be compliant.


This policy applies to all our operations, including management, accounts, and recruitment.  Nicholas May, Company Secretary  is responsible for ensuring that the policy is implemented, however every employee has a responsibility, in their own area of ensuring that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.
