Being an auditor or inspector is one of the most demanding jobs in any industry. It requires that the individual be an accurate, impartial, meticulous and ethical assessor of processes and products. Inspectors and auditors are expected to make balanced assessments of all relevant circumstances and to not be unduly influenced by external or their own interests and judgements. As inspections and audits are one of our core businesses, we recognise the need to ensure that our inspectors and auditors are of the highest quality. To this end, we maintain a strict Code of Conduct for our inspectors and auditors that they are all required to abide by. Below are some highlights of our Code of Conduct.

TÜV SÜD takes great pride in the conduct and performance of its employees. Even more so when it comes to inspections. Inspectors and auditors are expected to maintain the highest level of professional objectivity in collating, evaluating and communicating information about the inspection or audit. TÜV SÜD views any alleged lapses in an inspector’s or auditor’s conduct or performance very seriously. If needed, the company will launch a formal enquiry and subsequent disciplinary actions range from warnings to dismissal.
It is important to select the best and most well-suited candidates as inspectors and auditors. Thus, TÜV SÜD only recruits graduates from related fields. For example, recruiting textile graduates to become textile inspectors. Intensive training is provided to each and every
