Remote Audit - COVID Policy
As the COVID-19 Global Pandemic no longer represents a 'global health emergency', travel restrictions are lifted, economies are recovering and things are ‘back to normal’, MarinTrust has revoked the validity of its COVID-19 specific policy and procedures, with immediate effect. All documentation listed below remains valid as outlined.
This means that from 25th May 2023, the MarinTrust COVID-19 policy is no longer valid. This was discussed in depth and agreed by MarinTrust Governing Body Committee taking into consideration the statement made by World Health Organisation(WHO) about COVID-19 no longer represents a ‘global health emergency’. For further information, please refer to News.
MarinTrust will continue to maintain the procedures for exceptional circumstances to help manage any such eventuality in the future.
