Compliance with the Code of Conduct for Consultants

occupational safety and environmental standards in the context of meeting his contractual
obligations. The Consultant shall be solely responsible for his own delivery chain. Any violation
of the commitments of the Code of Conduct for Consultants shall be viewed as a major violation
of the contract on the part of the Consultant.
