The value that RINA provides to its clients is trust. For this reason RINA has decided to adopt and implement through its Code of Conduct the TIC Council Compliance Code and Principles, that enshrines the substance of the integrity that TIC Council membership stands for.

This entails for RINA:
To ensure the effectiveness of its implementation, RINA is required to submit its Compliance Programme to an annual independent examination, whose results are reported to the TIC Council. The result is a sound and verified basis for trust.
In this section, the main policy documents about TIC Council membership are posted to the public attention.
Take part in the development of RINA Compliance Programme with your suggestions and report any violations to the Compliance Principles through our whistleblowing platform.
