The Institute Disciplinary Procedures
An important function for The Institute is the self-disciplinary role necessary to ensure an Institute designation holder conducts him or herself in accordance with the Code of Professional Conduct. The Institute has written procedures in place that are followed when a member’s professional conduct is in question. The Institute’s disciplinary procedures are based on a peer review system, carried out by designation holders in good standing with The Institute. The disciplinary procedures are in place to provide a consistent and transparent process for determining the facts and imposing sanctions for conduct that is found to be unbecoming of the Code of Professional Conduct.
