The APIS advises that completion of the certification process by any applicant to the satisfaction of the APIS Senior technical Team simply means that that applicant has demonstrated a knowledge and competency to the level applied for and this is in no way a guarantee that the applicant will continue to provide future service to the same level of competency.
The Terms and Conditions and Constitution as displayed on the APIS website http://internationalfreezone.net remain in force and applicable to all parties.
Users of any service provided by a certified member of the APIS acknowledge that they are solely responsible for their own case.
Any application in receipt of a certification to the level applied for found to be subsequently operating at a level below the level of competency required will lose their certification until such time as they have undergone a full certification process again that demonstrates full competency to the level applied for.
New Members to an existing group. In the event that a certified member or group takes on a new member or members under their certification banner, the new member(s) will need to undergo the same certification process as the existing certified member. Until this is done the new member or group will be considered a provisional member until their certification is completed and which must be done within six months of joining. Once the certification process is completed the new member will be considered part of the existing certified member or group. In the event the new member does not wish to be certified the original member will need to be advised their certification does not include the new member and this will be clearly delineated on the APIS main web site and on any member APIS page. A new member must clearly advise and attest to the declaration outlined in the APIS membership application form: http://internationalfreezone.net/member.php
The Senior Technical Terminals of the APIS reserve the right to refuse certification to anyone they consider unfit to undergo the certification process.
An appeal may be lodged with the Keeper of Tech regarding any issue where the member applicant for certification believes they have been incorrectly refused certification
The Keeper of Tech has the final decision in any matters relating to certification
