This certification validates the Centre’s strong commitment to protecting its clients, and is regarded as a wake-up-call to further intensify its efforts at ensuring that its products, services and systems are designed and implemented in the best interest of its clients to deliver triple bottom-line benefits (financial, social and “do no harm”).
