Warning - Avertissement
Warning to Suppliers

Occasionally, some unscrupulous organizations/individuals address NSPA’s suppliers, invoking the Agency’s name, and solicit monetary contributions, to be paid to them (e.g. requesting payment for advertising to be made in a so-called “NSPA-sponsored” brochure).

Please be aware that NSPA does not approach customers or suppliers with sponsoring or advertising requests.

Should any supplier be approached by any individual, company or organization requesting money, sponsorship, or other favours on behalf of NSPA, they should immediately report the fact to NSPA’s Public Relations office ( ).

Avertissement à l'attention des fournisseurs

Des organisations ou des personnes privées peu scrupuleuses prennent occasionnellement contact avec les fournisseurs de la NSPA, sous couvert du nom de l'Agence, et sollicitent des contributions financières, à leur verser, par exemple en demandant le paiement de l'insertion d'un encart publicitaire dans une brochure prétendument parrainée par la NSPA.

Veuillez noter que la NSPA ne propose jamais aux clients ou aux fournisseurs ni parrainage ni publicité.

Tout fournisseur qui se verrait démarché par une personne, une société ou un organisme réclamant de l'argent, un parrainage, ou tout autre avantage au nom de la NSPA, est prié d'en informer immédiatement le Bureau des relations publiques de la NSPA ( ).
