How we do it?
In the development of its activities, AQU Catalunya applies the Code of Ethics approved by the Agency's Governing Board in 2018. The Code of Ethics includes the fundamental and instrumental values that guide the actions of the staff and collaborators, and also describes the commitments that put these values into practice.
The Agency's activities are carried out in accordance with the procedures and instructions that form part of AQU Catalunya's Quality Management System/Information Security Management System (QMS/ISMS). This system is based on the ISO 9001 and 27001 standards, implemented since 2000 and 2015, respectively.
In addition to the QMS/ISMS, AQU Catalunya also complies with other international standards for which it is accredited and recognised: the European Standards and Guidelines (ESG), World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) Recognition Status for the medical education accreditation process, and the certificate of alignment with the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) Guidelines of Good Practice (GGP).
