It is necessary to cover all possible conflict of interests’ sources that are identified regardless of their origin. ALTIS requires from all employees, internal and external, to comply with impartiality rules as well as reveal any situation known to them that may present them or ALTIS with a conflict of interests. ALTIS shall use this information as input in identifying threats to impartiality raised by the activities of such personnel or by the organization that employ them. Such personnel, internal or external shall not be used unless they demonstrate that there is no conflict of interest.
