(vii) The sustainable implementation of the statutory encouraged 'Circular Economy' by a highly efficient recycling is bound to the complete return of the ISAP Equipment including all delivered plant or/and device modules such as chambers, analyzers, process computers, signal converters, measure, actuator and controller elements, adapters, gas, signal and supply lines, sampling inlets and pipes, filter holders, magazines and punching presses, magazine cases, sensors and meteorological stations, stands, tables and mounting brackets, and sun protection covers. The disposal of notably heavy bulk modules shall be arrangeable on site by a local disposal company. The coordinations of the pickups shall be effected once the notifications of the final termination of usage have been receipt [2.3.4 (ii) (h)]. In addition to the prevention of all Stakeholders from unintended infringements in the high risk fields of law, the complete return is the essential Circular Economy measure to enable all Stakeholders a relevant profitability.
2.3.6 The application of the aforementioned easy executable and multiple risk-minimizing measures shall result in a high level of legal clarity and certainty. In combination with the advanced equipment it shall enable a sustainable success of all Stakeholders within the future-proof field of climate and environmental protection. Consequently, the exercise of Service Provider's basic due diligence shall ensure an adequate economic result that builds the obligatory foundation for any further equipment development and for the in the following mentioned Enterprise Transformation and its goals [2.4.1], servicing the common wealth, globally as well as at all branch locations. Following the 'ISAP Legal Team Play Policy' [2.3.1 (iii)], Service Provider and all Stakeholders shall cooperate to avoid or clarify operational disorders [2.4.2 (ii) / 3.7 / 4.9], missing remuneration of billable (partial) supplies or (partial) services [2.3.4 (i) (c) / 2.3.5 (i) (a)] or missing pre-deliveries intended for the production units [2.4.2 (i)]. Moreover, the Service Provider's duty is to detect provable lost profits and to take steps for compensations, if any [2.3.5 (i) (b) / 2.4.2 (ii)].
2.4 Enterprise Transformation
2.4.1 The current Enterprise Transformation follows the strategic milestone to produce the innovative reference aerosol sampling systems in higher numbers with consistency of high quality at new international locations and to sell it with short delivery periods ex stock to enable the Customers a prompt and sustainable success with their important scientific, commercial or official work in clean air matters. The maintenance- and eco-friendly, highly recyclable modular design and the opportunities of usage period extensions opens the Customers easy ways to comply with the obligatory implementation of the 'Circular Economy Principle' as an essential attribute of the transformation and the implementation of the founding motive, to support effective and sustainable measures and projects against the waste of resources – especially of the most important 'Clean Air' – and the corresponding climate change and health risk. Promising as per the economic opportunities reasonably prefigured by the global future prospects and market forecasts, and realizable regarding the official demands on due diligence in concert with the enterprise founding mission [2.3.3 (ii) / 2.4.1 (i)], the presented products innovation-savviness and the long-term developed professional competences, the finalized day-to-day business-friendly and globally-orientated quality assurance and compliance measures, and the high efficiency of the local produktions units. In detail:
(i) the emerging markets 'Automation Engineering', 'Information Technology' and 'Environmental Engineering' in concert with over 30 years of experiences in just these business disciplines with the services of an engineer 'Consulting', 'Planning', 'Development' and 'Project Management' with the expert topics 'Electrical Engineering and Electronics', 'Electronic Data Processing / Information Technology', 'Measurement and Control Technology', and 'Automation Engineering' with 'Process Analysis, Simulation, and Optimization', and application-oriented 'Distributed Control Systems' [5.4 (iii) and (iv)] in concert with the self-committing 'ISAP Clean Air Mission', implemented by leading 'Aerosol Sampling Systems' [5.4 (ii)] with several key design and functional features and diverse unique characteristics, and with an average rate of one per year world first developments ready to go into production, and by the 'Single or Multiple Chamber Environmental Simulation Plants';
(ii) the exponential but already unachievable rising consumption of resources and the current ninety percent global circularity gap due to the delayed implementation of the international agreements, laws, and public demands for an effective and sustainable 'Climate and Environmental Protection' in concert with the enterprise founding tenets from 1989 'Sustainable technical solutions for human and nature by current state-of-the-art technology, overhead cost-cutting, maintenance- and eco-friendly, highly recyclable modular design', and their implementation as per the fine-tuned 'Environmental Protection, Resource Saving, Equipment Support, Maintenance & Overhaul, Usage Period Extension & Recycling Plans' with the freight, energy and pollution-saving on site-exchanges of equipment modules as per the 'ISAP 4 Screws – 5 Minutes and Online Update Principles', and the 'ISAP Equipment Return, Compliance Check & Recycling Service' for the consequent and provable assertion of the 'Circular Economy' as the master key for climate change mitigation and hence the core foundation of all climate and environmental protection-associated business processes [2.3.3 (iii)];
(iii) the increased official demands on strict due diligence in times of conspicuously higher numbers of new, amended and repealed, more complex and interacting legal and technical norms in concert with the finalized risk-based enterprise total compliance implementation as per the central 'ISAP Risk, Compliance, Performance & Assets Management System (ISAP RCPAM System)' with its 'ISAP Legal Watch & Alert System (ISAP LWA System)' for the early detection of business process affecting new, amended or repealed norms and the associated prevailing case-law, as well as its 'ISAP Business Process Automation & Control System (ISAP BPAC System)' responsible for the updates and implementation of the local technical workflows and administrative daily routines, and the project post calculations for the internal efficiency and case reports, and the external Case Reports and Case Ratings [2.3.1 (iii)].
(iv) The 'ISAP LWA and BPAC Systems' [2.4.1 (iii)] are responsible for promptly updated compliance measures with timely updates of this page content and of the binding Enterprise Standards [2.3.1 (i) / 2.3.2 (i)], legally based on the corresponding legal and technical norms, but enterprise-adjusted efficiency improving streamlining regarding the different processes and international locations of the cell production vendor parts and distribution partners' enterprises and the mobile 'ISAP LAST Units' [2.4.2]. In all cases:
(v) of doubt on the legality of the scheduled business processes or of numerable provable loss of profits and damages of the trademark reputation due to delayed implementations of established business processes or delayed compliance with binding standards, prompt internal or if necessary official clarifications within two weeks as per the 'ISAP Legal Team Play Policy' are pre-agreed with the supervising Authorities or/and responsible Chamber or/and competent Federation [2.3.1 (iii)];
(vi) of weak due diligence or/and missing good practice of established and prospective Stakeholders – often easily identifiable by low or missing technical or/and organizational measures for the adequate management of 'IT & Data Security' [2.3.3 (i) / 3] and 'Data Protection' [2.3.3 (ii) / 4], 'Quality Assurance / Adherence to Schedules' [2.3.3 (iii)] or/and 'Intellectual & Industrial Property Rights' [2.3.3 (iv)] – the obligatory registration for business relation [4.5.3] shall be denied or temporarily suspended or terminated on persistent non-compliance. This part of the combined 'ISAP Risk, Compliance, Performance & Assets Management Strategy' [2.3 / 2.4.3] applies globally.
(vii) Corresponding with the foregoing and to the following, the permanent functional, capacitive, and security-related developments of the central 'ISAP Support & Quality Assurance System' with its Website Portals 'ISAP Online Support System' and its communications interfaces of the 'Online Support Areas' [2.3.3 (iii)] to meet the increasing demands on secure, confidencial, dependable, prompt and provable cross-border information exchange with realtime receipts [2.3.3 (i) / 3.2 to 3.7]. The current progressive further development of the 'ISAP BPAC System' [2.4.1 (iii)] as well as the fine-tunings of the 'ISAP LAST Units Efficiency and Quality Assurance Management System' [2.4.2] from 'Excellent' to 'Total' are topics, whereat for all systems case-depending adjustments with the local supervising Authorities or/and responsible Chambers or/and competent Federations [1.2 / 1.3 / 2.3.1 (iii)] are scheduled.
2.4.2 One of the core foundations of the Enterprise Transformation is the main focus shift within the enterprise division 'Aerosol Sampling Systems' with the change from the former temporary small series manufacturing to large standard series cell production sessions with optimized workflows for the assembling and final testing processes in the 'ISAP Local Assembling Stock-keeping & Testing Units (ISAP LAST Units)' for a sustainable high trademark reputation by the long-term preservation of the enterprise product guarantee 'state-of-the-art equipment with constant total quality, short delivery periods and best value for money'.
(i) For the successful implementation, the proper compliance and performance of the supply and distribution chains with prompt corrective fine-tunings by means of the 'ISAP Stakeholder Compliance & Performance Check Reports (ISAP SCPC Reports)' of the established cell production vendor parts and distribution partners' enterprises is an essential part. Likewise, the availability, compliance and performance of the further Stakeholders on-site such as skilled staff, crafters, and office equipment suppliers and the local or (inter)national service entities [2.2.1] like the local airports, seaports, embassies, food and energy suppliers, internet, phone, and mobile phone service providers, mail and parcel delivery and courier services, health insurances, medical offices, pharmacies, emergency medical services, ambulance services, rescue flight services, hospitals, responsible police and firefighter stations, advocate's, lawyer's and notary's offices, tax consultancies, insurances, appraiser and claims adjuster offices, economy information services, financial service providers, banks, arbitral bodies, brokers, intermediaries, motor vehicle and boat services, property managers, landlords, and affecting neighborhoods is the essential main issue for optimization of the framework and to ensure the pre-calculated efficiencies by controlled workload distributions for and performances of the ISAP LAST Units [2.4.2]. Thus, necessary clarifications with prompt and competent information exchange shall lead to first utilizable results within a binding two weeks timespan [2.3.1 (i) / 3.2.1]. Longer periods of obstructions shall lead to investigations as per the following measures [2.4.2 (ii)] of the combined 'ISAP Risk, Compliance, Performance & Assets Management Strategy' [2.3 / 2.4.3].
(ii) The implementation is also assisted by the measures of the 'ISAP Business Continuity Management', 'Sabotage Detection & Defense' and 'Indemnity Management Systems' as per the Economic Protection Grundschutz of the Federation concerned [1.3.6] as well as by the 'ISAP eEvidence & Incident Processing' and 'Regime Change Behavior Regulations' that expressly provides a coordination with/an action by the supervising Authorities or/and responsible Chamber or/and competent Federation [1.2 / 1.3], or/and by specialist lawyers, if necessary based on case reports with relevant data backups of the 'ISAP IT & Data Security Management System' [3.1 (i)] with copies of internet access and communication, sources of pertinent information and applicable legal provisions. Any reason for an impracticability, ineffectualness or an inefficiency of this part of the combined 'ISAP Risk, Compliance, Performance & Assets Management Strategy' [2.3 / 2.4.3] may lead to a temporary suspension or to a final termination of operations at this location.
2.4.3 Because the enterprise itself is a spin-off from a university, the transformation also counts on highly qualified and responsible 'Talents' who would like to perform their skills within the future business areas and expert topics, and for the 'ISAP Clean Air Mission' [2.4.1 (i)] as (a) creative-driven independent contractors from any location acting 'Freelancers' [(i)] within the international 'ISAP Developer and Legal Teams', or (b) within one of the local 'ISAP Start-up Units', widely acting self-responsible and autarchic on-site as 'ISAP Service, LAST Unit Operator, and Distribution & Support Teams', at constitution supported by basic know-how and fine-tuned workflows, and applicable inter(national) and local law-based Teams Standards, and during operation assisted by consulting and consecutive measures timely recommended by the ISAP RCPAM and BPAC Systems [2.4.1 (iii)] supplied by a new central 'ISAP Risk, Compliance, Performance & Assets Management Unit' to effect always updated teams compliance [2.3 / 2.4.1 (ii) and (iii)], and to reduce the effort on routine tasks:
(i) Beside the future-proof business areas, products and expert topics, and as already scheduled in the Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics [2.3.2 (i)], the Enterprise Transformation is also based on the consequent reduction of human highly-concentrated routine tasks in front and back offices and in the LAST Units down to six hours per day. The free timing and prompt on concentrated self-motivated creative tasks on developments shall be maintained, but underlies the Adherence to Schedules Check Module of the ISAP BPAC System to meet the deadlines. In addition to the preset or freely chosen work-lifetime balance, the 'ISAP Team Development & Care Plan' contains survival-related, physical and mental fitness supporting team sports offers like ocean sailing and cross country tours and covers a good healthcare service, and good wealth-creating measures by selected group insurances and deposit, performance, persistence and team membership standing-related added value sharing, also supported by the 'ISAP Anti-Drug Regulation'.
(ii) The international nature of the Enterprise Transformation is valid for the selections of new cell production partner enterprises, new ISAP Teams Members, and the locations of the ISAP Start-up Units. For latter the actual main criteria are (a) a stable legal regime, a good healthcare and an effective pandemic management system, (b) moderate climate and environmental conditions, (c) low corruption, money laundering and other crime rates, (d) high demand on environmental protection, (e) good political and regulatory frameworks for an innovative Automation and Environmental Engineering and Information Technology Start-up by widely unrestricted import/export opportunities/a local free-trade area/a freeport, moderate taxes, skilled staff, and an appropriate legal basis to implement the applicable compliance measures [2.3.3], as well as (f) effective supporting Municipal Administrations, Authorities, Chambers and Federations [2.3.1 (i) to (iii)], and Service Entities [2.2.1 / 2.4.2 (i)], as basis for a successful interaction for the benefit of the Stakeholders, the local communities, and the countries. Specified pre-information supplies about pre-selected locations with first business and Authorities contacts are pre-agreed with the responsible Chamber of Industry and Commerce [1.3.5] and the Federal State Business Development Corporation. The current values and tendencies of these business locations' contexts are currently in review and entered into the 'ISAP Country & Regions Risks & Opportunities Reports' and the ISAP SCPC Reports [2.4.2 (i)], pre-evaluated by the ISAP RCPAM System [2.4.1 (iii)]. Where appropriate, the pre-evaluations shall be re-interpreted for informed decisions on new locations. In cases of necessary relocations [2.4.2 (i) and (ii)], the flexibility of the mobile LAST Units [2.4.2] enable a very prompt shipping.
(iii) The international direction shall apply also for (a) the continuation of the very important cooperations with leading scientists, beside the enterprise founding responsible for lots of ideas for new and most advanced plant and device developments meeting their needs, (b) the own scientific team and advisory board members, and for (c) the continuation of the furtherance of bachelor and master theses, inter alia, delivered the basics for the further development of the enterprise business process automation [2.4.1 (vii)].
3 IT & Data Security
3.1 Secure, dependable, and provable real time communications and redundant protected data processings are indispensable enterprise issues [2.4.1 (vii)]. Beside the obligatory due diligence to avoid the possible very high administrative fines or dissuasive penalties on privacy infringements as per the Articles 83 and 84 of the 'General Data Protection Regulation GDPR (EU)' [2.1.2], there shall be provable effective measures against losses of technology know-how, scientific results and business and trade secrets by unauthorized disclosure, particularly important for highly innovative enterprises and scientific institutes to enable an adequate return for the decades-long development and scientific research and to ensure the sustainable further development, funded by owned intellectual properties, and affecting the welfare of the communities. Furthermore, the savings in resources, travel costs, and risks comply with Service Provider's consistent commitment to climate and environmental protection and with his risk and compliance management.
(i) The implementation of the measures of Service Provider's IT & Data Security Management System subserve the scheduled lean and legal execution of his IT-based business processes, observing the three fundamental security principles 'confidentiality', 'integrity' and 'availability', completed by the obligatory 'provability'. For the secured electronic communication processes of this website [3.2.1] the premise of 'compliant with the current state of the art, but suitable for daily routine and without any installing effort on Stakeholders' side' applies.
(ii) The implementation is executed according to Service Provider's binding applicable Enterprise Standards, based on the corresponding official technical directives and recommendations as well as legal provisions [2.3.3 (i)]. These standards are subject to timely updates, depending on new or amended norms, Service Provider's 'Cybercrime Risk Report' [2.3.3 (i)], and on User reports [3.7].
(i) Service Provider monitors and reports the current threats by increasing sophisticated cybercrime and its impact by published damages and statistics to check the efficiency of his risk-based prevention measures as a matter of due diligence and best practice. At present, over 96 percent of all fraud and damages is based on email with the most risky features 'HTML', 'links' and 'attachments' that are banned by the 'IT-Grundschutz-Kompendium' [2.3.3 (i)] on that score. Beside the obligatory due diligence to avoid any privacy and trade secret laws infringements [2.3.3 (ii) and (iv) / 3.1] that requires the use of end-to-end encrypted email to comply with the applicable legal norms and prevailing case-law [2.3.1] and with the binding guidelines of the Official Decision Makers [2.3.1 (iii)], it has to be considered that free email services are banned for each pure B2B platform like this website due to non-compliance with the binding unfair competition case-law [2.3.3 (v)] with potential cease and desist letter opportunity.
(ii) Due to the missing new 'ePrivacy Regulation (COM (2017) 10 final) (EU)' [2.1.2 / 4.1.3], the exclusion of consent as of 'Article 6 paragraph 1 subparagraph 1 point (a) GDPR (EU)' [4.1.2], and the possible high damages that might be judged as results from grossly negligent infringement against due diligence with predicate offense of money laundering, the current legal conditions of the former email-based plain information and reminder were under investigation with Service Provider's supervising Authorities, regarding the fact that nowadays email can be unrecognizably manipulated or completely faked, plain information and reminder email might be used if these are 'No Reply' for invitation of further communication via the secured Online Support Areas of the Stakeholders, and if these are without the risky features as per (i), but with unforgeable authentication characteristics. Thus, all current Service Provider's email without the authentication characteristics are still fakes with possible malware elements that (a) should NOT be opened but (b) documented by screenshot, if possible, and (c) deleted completely to prevent from damages. The Service Provider is grateful for information as fake email are relevant for IT & Data Security as well as for the trademark and enterprise reputation [2.3.3 (i) and (v) / 2.4.2 (ii)].
(iii) This investigation also observed potential legal consequences in privacy [2.3.3 (ii) / 4], trade secrets [2.3.3 (iv) / 3.3], and foreign trade and payment [2.3.3 (vii)] matters due to the unforeseeable cross-border travel of email, independent of information exchange with national, european or third-country business partners. Moreover, the European Court of Justice [2.1.2] declared an EU-U.S. privacy level framework for invalid the second time and pointed to the duty to verify the binding requirements for the legal use of the 'Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC)' on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, the following secured communication capabilities shall be binding until otherwise stated here, subject to secured API, EDI, or other secure technologies with provable service.
3.2.1 The current active measures are Transport Layer Security-protected connections, secure eContact forms and the particularly secured, BSI Grundschutz-Kompendium-, EU GDPR-, and EU/DE Trade Secrets Directive/Law-compliant Online Supprt Portal for fast, secure, confidential, provable and high-performance exchange of business-related or legally relevant instant messages and documents with single-/multi-user conference chat and one-click multi-user document distribution in real time:
(i) With the provable service by the real-time receipt confirmations with date and time stamps, also the basic principles 'authenticity', 'transparency', 'imputability' and 'revision capability' for legally required privacy and accounting documentations are given by design and by default as per 'Article 25 paragraphs 1 and 2 GDPR (EU)', and 'Guidelines on the right to data portability' of the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party's WP 242 Rev.01 Annex to WP 242 Rev. 01 of 13 December 2016 / 5 April 2017 last Revised and adopted / 25 May 2018 Approval by Consistency mechanism decision of the European Data Protection Board [2.1.2].
(ii) For indication, Service Provider's electronically transferred access-protected documents [3.3 / 4] shall be signed with e.g. 'ISAP Online Support Portal Download (QES equivalent)' for reference as legally considered equivalent to a qualified electronic signature with real-time date and time stamp of the transfer protocols, also valid for the embedded instant message, conference, team meeting and home office system for realtime chats, complex case clarifications with international Stakeholders and supervising Authorities or/and responsible Chamber or/and competent Federation [2.3.1 (iii)], and for complete digital VAT and foreign trade investigations by tax and customs offices [1.2 / 1.3 / 3.3].
3.2.2 Collectively, the aforementioned technical and organizational measures against malware, unauthorized third party access and manipulation, the offered secure communication capabilities mentioned under '4 Privacy Statement' prevent Stakeholders and Service Provider from unintended infringements against the applicable (inter)national Copyright, Data Protection, Business and Trade Secrets Protection and IT Security agreements, directives, regulations, laws and legally binding judgments [3.3 / 4 / 5.1] and result into compliance with the legal provision package of the EU directive and regulations '2002/58/EC'/'(COM (2017) 10 final) (EU)', '2009/136/EC', '(EU) 910/2014', '(EU) 2016/679', '(EU) 2016/680', '(EU) 2016/943', '(EU) 2016/1148' [2.1.2] for the implementation of the strategy for the European single market ESM with the target to increase the trust in the digital supplies and security by design and by default.
3.3 As a matter of principle, the Service Provider treats all administrative and technical information from his Business Partners and supervising Authorities as confidential [3.1], and expects the same treatment with his own business and trade secrets based on adequate security and safety measures. The treatment on confidential data shall be executed in accordance with the judicature of the legal provisions of the 'GeschGehG (DE)', '§§ 203 and 204 StGB (DE)', '§ 88 TKG (DE)', '§§ 4 and 5 UWG (DE)', and the Directive '(EU) 2016/943' [2.1.1 / 2.1.2].
3.4 For the preparation of a business relation the Service Provider installs the Users a secured Registration Online Support Area for a first confidential information exchange with the obligatory provable service, whereat file formats listed in the 'IT-Grundschutz-Kompendium' [2.3.3 (i)] as dangerous shall be avoided:
