We are objective in all aspects of our work

Auditors should be objective in all their work. In order to achieve this, a key factor is independence which should be expressed through how they think and how they look. PwC firms strengthen these principles through a combination of actions, including that the independence policy is managed by senior management, submitting independent enquiries for issues which call for value judgements, carrying out on-going training and requiring strict compliance with independence requirements.

High level of reliability and quality for our clients

All PwC’s actions aim to ensure that the Firm is the best professional services company and perceived as such by the markets that we choose, our clients and our people.

In keeping with this objective, PwC adopts a Quality Policy based on the following strategic principles:

  • Exceeding the client’s expectations.
  • Promoting the efficiency of human and technological resources to ensure the quality of the work and projects.
  • Ensuring the on-going improvement of all the company’s activities.
  • Preventive risk management.
  • Improving internal communication throughout the company.

By complying with these principles, engagements should be completed in accordance with the applicable contracts and standards, offering our clients a high level of service reliability and quality.

Some of the actions are:

  • Completion of projects by partners, directors and managers, managing client relations, quality of the work, timelines and related costs effectively using professional methodologies and to the highest quality standards.
  • Ensuring the correct functioning the quality system, in accordance with ISO 9001.
  • Managing human resources to have the best professionals, based on on-going training and development.
  • Managing the engagement risk and client pre-selection.

All employees are responsible for the quality of their work.

PwC management personally commits to complying with the Quality Policy, delegating the Quality System to the Quality Manager.

We build trust with our clients

PwC is a global and therefore complex organisation. But we believe that these characteristics are compatible with the transparency principle which we apply to what we do and how we do it. The aim is to build trust with all stakeholders and guarantee that the value of our professional services network is visible.

At PwC we constantly review our corporate practices to ensure that people understand the way we work.

Clarity and transparency are values which are increasingly appreciated by our clients, our professionals and society as a whole and our response is to better explain PwC’s structure and operational approach. This requires us to make a communications effort in areas as important as service quality, independence policy, corporate governance, business culture, remuneration setting methodology and risk control.

Moreover, the PwC firms encourage all professionals to act ethically and appropriately, particularly when they have to take difficult decisions.

All PwC member firms are aware of the significance of these criteria for the organisation as a whole and undertake to strictly oversee compliance. We understand that this is the best way of delivering the strength of our international network.
